The Wright brothers are credited with inventing and building the world’s first successful airplane. With that same pioneer spirit, the Smithsonian recently unveiled its X 3D Collection and state-of-the-art 3D explorer.
As part of the X 3D Collection, the 1903 Wright Flyer was scanned using a laser, producing an accurate 3D model.
The 3D scan of the Wright Flyer lets users analyze the fine details of the flyer, creating a new understanding and glance into the Wright brothers inventive genius.
The team at API Services modeled the Wright Flyer’s scanned data.
