Scanner consisting 12 digital cameras and 9 different softwares (some of them customized) manages to model human figure after intensive development process that took place at summer 2003 and lasted several months. Enthusiastic team starts the production immediately - after colleagues are scanned it is is time for the bypassers to get scanned! The Scanner invites volunteers and paid models through the grapevine, advertising and street recruiting.
At the end of the year www.lowpolygon3d.com online web store offers worlds first coherent 3D human figure collection aimed for visualizations. Year later the collection has increased with 12 more character categories and the sales campaign held at the end of the year was success.
Two years later character models have been sold all over the world. Arcitectural publications from all continents (excluding South Pole) include figures in their visualizations.
Australian professor of architecture came to visit Helsinki and among other things visited architectural agency that was designing Kamppi shopping center. Out of the blue he pointed out one terminal picture, in which he was standing by himself, to the designer. The designer got totally confused. The professor had had a visit in Finland year earlier and at that visit he had been body scanned. His digital journey from the scanner took him to the character collection and from there he got licensed in to the 3D model library of an architectural agency in Helsinki, and finally from there to this one terminal illustration.
The scanner was dismantled at 2005 due to moving in to new business premises. Vision of more detailed 2.0 collection was left to wait its execution.
