The 3D print of the WWII Battleship USS Arizona will located at the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was created from LiDAR, SONAR, and photogrammetry data compiled in Autodesk ReCap. It took 18 hours for WhiteClouds to 3D print it in two pieces to make the 36 inch long 3D print. One additional 3D print will be on display in the future at the Autodesk Gallery located in San Francisco.
Companies that participated in addition to Autodesk:
- National Park Service
- 3D at Depth
- Deep Ocean Engineering
- Oceanic Imaging Consultants
- Sam O. Hirota
- Shark Marine Technologies
- United States Coast Guard
- United States Navy Mobile Diving Salvage Unit One
The 3D Print was at Autodesk University in Las Vegas last week in the Autodesk ReCap booth and also made an appearance in my Blogger and Social Media Meetup event.
Here is Autodesk’s Pete Kelsey and NPS Scott Pawlowski with the 3D print.
It was truly an honor to be part of this historical and emotionally moving project.
