Hooke Park has hundred of naturally bend trees of little forestry value.
We using Scanect software with the Kinect sensor as a mobile 3d-scanning platform.
We plan to scan each tree to create database of possible geometries.
A hand-held sweep generates a 3d mesh of the visible elevation of the tree.
The mesh produced by the 3d scanning is imported into Rhino and recomposed into an series of cross-sections.
We’ve been experimenting with tree scanning techniques, using a Kinect sensor. The plan is to 3d scan all the Douglas Fir trees that have “basal sweeps” (curved lower trunks), and then select and compose them to form the Boiler House wall.
