Direct Dimensions, Inc. in conjunction with John Milner Associates used Surphaser® 25HSX to scan the historic Madison Avenue entrance archway to the in Baltimore USA.

The 3D scan data will be used to restore the Arch as part of an on-going preservation effort.

About the Arch:

  • The park itself is one of the three oldest landscaped urban parks in the United States (along with Central Park and Fairmount Park in Philadelphia) and is on the list of National Register of Historic Places.
  • The entrance arch was completed in 1868 and served as the main entrance to the park until it was separated from the park proper by the completion of Druid Park Lake Drive.
  • In 1961 the arches, declared to be a traffic hazard, were almost torn down. $14,000 dollars were raised for the preservation of the arches and demolition was avoided.
  • Almost 50 years later the restoration efforts are finally beginning.

Specifications:

  • Model used: Surphaser®* 25HSX IR_X
  • 23 scans

Post-processing:

  • Cleaning and alignment in PolyWorks®: 2 days
  • Basic modeling into a 3D CAD model using Rhinoceros® and the Pointools for Rhino™ plug-in: 3 days
