Published Work: Datum Tech Solutions Creates Digital Twin For the Museum of Flight

For the past few months, Datum Tech Solutions has worked in partnership with the Museum of Flight to enhance the museum goers experience by providing 3D laser scans of two of the museum's most unique aircrafts and later scanning the entire WW2 exhibit. 

Today, we're thrilled to find out that our work with the museum has been published internationally in both Technology Designer and BIM Today:  


With the opportunity to have Datum Tech help create digital twins of the two planes, the Museum of Flight was opening the door to a sort of archival artifact recreation that had never been attempted.

Using a highly precise Leica RTC360 3D Laser Scanner, the team from Datum Tech spent an entire day capturing data on each of the planes to produce digital replicas of each.

Creating a digital twin through premium quality 3D point clouds and high-dynamic-range imaging provides the Museum of Flight with unobstructed access to the digital twins in ways that are not even possible with the actual planes themselves.
