    Sharing some work we did on the bald head island lighthouse in North Carolina.

    We flew up and down the lighthouse and collected around ~650 photos. The photos were stitched together and used to created a 3D surface. Attached is a 2D photo of the side of the lighthouse. We are currently 3D printing a color replica of the lighthouse, which should be delivered later this month.
