Fort Harrison Gets a Makeover

Posted on October 25, 2010 at 8:00am 0 Comments

The Fort Harrison Hotel opened in 1926 and was Clearwater,

Florida’s most luxurious hotel at the time. In 1965 the Rolling

Stones wrote their hit song “I can’t get no Satisfaction” at the

hotel. But by the 1970’s the hotel had fallen into disrepair and

was only a shadow of its once greatness. New owners took over

the hotel and began the massive job of restoring the hotel to it

previous glory. This was a long and complicated process but

was recently… Continue

3D Coolie Really Goes 3D

Posted on October 24, 2010 at 8:00am 0 Comments

The koozie has probably been around almost as long as the can

and bottle. Most koozies you find on the market today are a

pretty standard cylinder or sleeve that fits over a bottle or can.

3D Coolie is trying to change all of that with 3D designed koozies

that look like nothing else on the market.

The Problem

The guys at 3D Coolie had a great idea. Why not make koozies

with specific themes or sports teams that are 3D. With a

background in art and action… Continue

Sand Casting Goes High Tech

Posted on October 23, 2010 at 8:00am 0 Comments

The sand casting industry has been around for a very long time.

The process involves building patterns to create a shape in sand

in the core and drag (top and bottom) of the mold, assembling

the mold halves, pouring molten metal and then breaking away

the sand once the metal cools. To complicate things sometimes

cores are inserted into the mold to create voids or other

complex shapes.

The Problem

Many casting companies still make their patterns by hand.… Continue

3D Scanning of Archaeological Artifacts

Posted on October 22, 2010 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Archeologists have studied ancient carvings, artifacts, ruins and

statues for hundreds of years. To captures these items they first

used sketches until the invention of the camera. With a camera

2D images could be taken and studied anywhere.

The Problem

The University of South Florida wanted to capture ancient Mayan

statues, monuments and carvings in 3D and build a on-line

digital data repository. This would allow archeologist from

around the world the… Continue
