Cole

Project Manager & 3D Scanning Technician

Pursuing a change in career, Cole got started in 3D scanning three years ago. In his short time, he has learned a lot about the industry working with Lanny on various 3D projects. Although valuable as a project manager and 3D scanner, the unique skill Cole brings to the team is graphic design and video production. He earned his BA at Gordon College.

Cole says, “I work for Arrival 3D because of the experience of working alongside talented professionals in the 3D industry; a constant curiosity of the development of 3D technologies; and also, I get to meet a lot of great, hardworking people across multiple industries.”

His favorite project with Arrival 3D has been working with Gas Company Tower. The view overlooked the entire downtown LA. He also enjoyed having the opportunity to scan a McLaren P1 (see video, on the right). For fun, Cole enjoys baseball and golf, going to concerts, and spending time at the beach.

Constantine

mechanical engineering & product design

Constantine’s first engineering job was in 2007, during his final year of university study. His interest in 3D scanning and similar technologies was peaked because it was not popular in his home country. He earned his masters and postgraduate degree in metal casting. Constantine started using SolidWorks in 2008 and starting reverse engineering from scans in Geomagic Design X in 2015. 

His favorite projects with Arrival 3D include working with centrifugal pump components, mechanical gears, water separators, and Strato-cruiser airplane. Constantine’s hobbies include playing guitar and playing sports, especially soccer.
