Crime Scene & Common Scanning Challenges – Live Demonstrations of 3D Technologies

SPAR 3D Expo & Conference is partnering with the International Association of Forensics and Security Metrology (IAFSM) to demonstrate how innovative 3D technologies are being utilized.  Integrated into the crime scene will be common scanning challenges such as black, white and reflective surfaces.

Accident Reconstruction

A new addition to the show floor this year, IAFSM will bring a crash vehicle for demonstrations of Accident reconstructions. One side will be un-coated and the other will be prepared with a light coating to facilitate better scanning. Presentations of accident reconstruction demo results will be presented by IAFSM and vendors.
