This customer is working on the restoration of a Stapley ski race boat. He used the EinScan H Hybrid Light 3D Scanner to digitally capture the entire hull.
As the EinScan H is a very efficient, user friendly and at the same time accessible device, it is the perfect tool for this boat-building business. Getting started 3D scanning with the EinScan H is smooth and easy in technically demanding environments. It is light and flexible, so even getting it set up in a workshop and maneuvering it around huge objects for surface capturing is a simple task.
3D scanning with the EinScan H creates an authentic digital image of the boat hull in the EXScan software. The boat was scanned on a medium detail level to an accuracy of 1mm.
Placement of some equally spaced cross sections or “stations” in order to create the new hull. Combined with a cross-section of the keel, these are used to loft new skins for the boat.
The mould is then skinned with wood battens which would be faired and used to build up the layers of veneer. The outer surface of this mould needs to match the inner shape of the hull.
The last step is the comparison of the scan data to the newly lofted hull skin and transom.
