SPAR 3D Adds More Hands-on Learning and Live Demonstrations - 10/03/2016

SPAR 3D Expo & Conference has added additional hands-on learning opportunities to its renowned 3D technology event to engage new users. The organisers have announced several new developments for the 13th edition, which will be held from 11-14 April 2016 in The Woodlands (near Houston, Texas), USA. The event is focused on 3D technology applications in key vertical markets. In addition to a full conference programme and a vendor-neutral exhibit hall, SPAR 3D will feature interactive workshops and demonstrations for hands-on learning of end-to-end 3D. Read on for an overview of the new activities.

Industrial Facilities

Take a 3D field trip to the Eaton’s Houston Experience Center sponsored by LFM. P Lunch & shuttles provided. Pre-registration required. 


SPAR 3D is partnering with the Montgomery County Sherriff’s Office and the International Association of Forensics and Security Metrology (IAFSM) to demonstrate how innovative 3D technologies are enabling law enforcement to solve crimes.  The SPAR CSI, including actual crime scene investigators, offers a close-up look at how law enforcement is integrating UAVs, mobile and terrestrial laser scanning, hand-held devices and sophisticated processing tools to render crime scene data. 


A mock construction site on the exhibit floor will present common scanning challenges such as clash detection, volumetric measurement, progress on a job site, reflective surfaces, hazardous conditions and more. See capture, process and visualisation tools at work at the demo site and in the presentations of live demo results sessions. 

Mobile Mapping

A full range of state of the art mobile mapping rigs will be on display at the event site. Attendees will have the opportunity to ride in a demo rig with scanning experts for an inside view of different mobile mapping systems and applications. 

3D Body Scans

Always wanted a 3D replica of yourself? Hop into the Shapify booth for a 3D body scan. Shapify uses Artec white light scanners to render printable 3D files which can then be printed through Shapify or outsourced to another printer.

Advanced registration rates are available through 15 March 2016. Attendees can register at Vendors interested in exhibiting can contact [email protected]. Qualified members of the media and press may attend for free.
