The legendary Maserati 3200 GT car has received a new life thanks to the RangeVision Spectrum 3D scanner
Restomod – a new life of old cars
Restomod is a direction of auto-tuning that connoisseurs of classic cars of historical value are probably familiar with. The term restomod is formed from the merger of two words restoration and modernization and denotes a car with a qualitatively restored body and upgraded units, due to which its consumer parameters are improved: comfort, controllability, and economy. It is restored and modernized using the latest carbon parts and the most modern technologies.
RestoMod 2021 Project
Tomaso Trussardi, a well-known Italian entrepreneur, realized his automotive dream by turning the iconic Maserati 3200 GT into a real racing car with its inherent elegance.
Task: it was necessary to obtain a digital copy of the Maserati 3200 GT car for reverse engineering and subsequent modernization.
A functional RangeVision Spectrum 3D scanner was selected for the implementation of this project. It is designed for the professional digitization of objects of various shapes and sizes.
It is worth noting that the RangeVision Spectrum scanner has already shown its effectiveness in such projects as scanning body parts to create a replica of the Shelby Cobra car and developing a Kawasaki motorcycle sports fairing with improved aerodynamic parameters.
Why was the RangeVision Spectrum 3D scanner chosen for Tomaso Trussardi's project?
High scanning accuracy up to 0.04 mm and 3D resolution up to 0.06 mm.
Due to structured-light technologies, it is possible to create color-detailed 3D models with the transfer of complex geometry and the smallest details of various objects: from miniature to large-scale.
Three scanning modes allow you to work with different types of objects.
Convenient RangeVision ScanCenter NG software for scanning and processing models.
Creating a digital copy
The first stage of the transformation of the legendary Maserati 3200 GT was the car scanning with the RangeVision Spectrum 3D scanner. The partners of RangeVision INKAY Technology S.r.l scanned the body, dashboard, doors, trunk, hood, and engine compartment.
Then the car was mounted on a lift. To open access to the chassis, and suspension parts and scan them, it was necessary to dismantle the body elements, engine and wheels.
As a result of data processing, an accurate digital 3D model of the car was obtained, which had the necessary symmetry. Based on this digital copy, the Maserati 3200 GT car was recreated in its original form.
The RestoMod 2021 project has been called a revolution in the use of composite materials in the production of racing cars. The world brands of high-performance supercars and motorcycles appreciated the result.
3D scanners have made a great contribution to the development of auto-tuning and repair. With their help, you can scan parts and body parts, and then take them on a 3D printer. It is especially true for small car service stations and private specialists who perform car repairs and maintenance.
