Redstack and SA SSSI YP’s team up to 3D print the inaugural Golden Tripod Award

Redstack have announced they will be 3D printing the new Golden Tripod Award for the Spatial Information Day (SID) in Adelaide, Friday August 14th.

Proudly presented by the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) and Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) in South Australia, Spatial Information Day is the premier event for surveying, geospatial and mapping professionals.  The event boasts a range of high profile presenters and is expected to attract over 400 attendees, concluding with the South Australian Spatial Excellence Awards.

The annual Golden Tripod Award is a new initiative from the South Australian SSSI YP's to engage the audience during SID's breakout sessions. Out on site, one of the first things any surveyor learns is how to set up a tripod centred over a point. The Golden Tripod Award will pit the delegates’ skills at setting up a tripod with an optical tribrach to be leveled and centred over the target against the clock, with the winner being whoever achieves this in the quickest time.

As proud sponsors of Spatial Information Day, Redstack generously offered to 3D print the new Golden Tripod Award on their Ultimaker 2 3D printer, demonstrating the exceptional quality and delicate intricacies achievable with the current generation of 3D printers.  Attendees will have the opportunity to see the Ultimaker in action at Spatial Information Day where Redstack will be showcasing their 3D printing capabilities alongside their other 3D scanning, 3D modelling, aerial and UAV services.

Phil Amato, Sales Director of Redstack, explains “The ability to capture, model and print in 3D is transforming the way we communicate and visualise surveying and geospatial data.  For example, 3D printing can be used to communicate planned infrastructure, cuts and excavations or regeneration efforts.  The applications for 3D printing are broad and when you combine this with the use of UAVs and 3D scanners for reality capture, together with industry leading 3D modelling software, you have a powerful end to end solution.”
