"Rapidform XOR is the best 3D scanning software to handle huge amounts of raw data from the FARO Focus 3D scanner that we used to scan the boat for Life of Pi,” said Edward Yao, LeaderTek Sales Engineer. ”We were very happy with the results of the scan data processing from the merged STL file that we delivered to Rhythm & Hues, the company in charge of CG for the film.”

Learn more about how Rapidform XOR software contributed to the visual effects shots featured in the 3D adventure drama film Life of Pi.

Tech Tip

Creating Smart Models From Scan Data
A "smart" model is a parametric model that uses parameters intelligently to control the design of the model. This concept is used when designing a part that needs to change to fit a number of similar parts in a family.
