3D Printer Lends Compelling Benefits

VEAR has acquired a PRUSA i3 MK2 3D printer to assist our clients to bring their ideas into reality quickly and accurately.

3D Printing has revolutionized the design of products and is moving quickly into the way legal evidence is presented and understood.  We now have a 3D printer that allows us to produce evidence that can be held and observed by viewers who would have only been able to view photographs or computer aided models before.

The 3D Printer uses data collected from scanners and digital cameras to create accurate crash and scene models that precisely recreate the scene at a small scale for presentation in the courtroom.

Most people learn kinesthetically which makes physical models especially compelling for more individuals in any courtroom than expert testimony (auditory learners) or photos (visual learners).   Reaching through more effectively to people provides the ability to present a more compelling case.

We hope to put our new tool to use for you in the near future!

 

Drone Assisted Accident Reconstruction

Drone3

VEAR takes pride in keeping on the cutting edge of accident reconstruction technology. We invest in the most up to date software from vehicle manufacturers, the FARO Focus 3D X 330 for 3D laser scanning, and now VEAR announces a drone fleet for aerial photography and 3D computerized environment production.

Certification

Commercial drone flight requires FAA certification. VEAR’s Gary Johnson and Jeff Standridge have recently attained their certification and are fully approved commercial drone pilots!

Drone Advantage

Drones allow VEAR to get and share a bird’s eye view of the crash scene. It’s especially helpful in areas where visibility is low on the ground, curvy roads, steep slopes, on bridges, and to capture views of the scene from a different perspective. 

In addition to being impressive visually in the courtroom, the additional points of data are helpful in reconstructing the facts of the crash being investigated.  VEAR’s fleet of drones are specially equipped with high resolution digital cameras and GPS enabled flight plan controls. They can hover and capture detailed images from great heights and nearby existing structures.  These images can then be used to produce a 3D computerized environment of the crash scene that can be viewed and shared online without special programs. 
 
Engage VEAR with your next crash case to see the drone program in action. Be sure to congratulate our new pilots next time you see them!
