Last week the Play it Again SAM team decamped to Richard Ihnatowicz’ home, spending a day there 3D scanning and making detailed records of SAM.
Although no longer operational, SAM is still in a remarkably good condition, making the tasks of scanning and reconstruction much easier than could otherwise have been the case.
Chris Cornish from Sample & Hold brought with him and used a3D scanner, based on triangulation by a fringe projector, to capture an entire model of SAM in great detail. A snapshot from this of the ‘vertebrae’ can be seen above and the whole of SAM below. The team is delighted with the outcome.
