Holographic Sheets – The Future of 3D Modeling

A little more than a year ago, a video clip surfaced online showcasing  an extraordinary technology innovated by the fellows at Zebra Imaging . A 3D digital holographic print that can be used to display architectural models with a true three dimensional effect that would allow information analysis from every angle of  a certain design model, drawings are extracted from drafting softwares as AutoCAD or Revit and magically printed as 3D holography. Some of you maybe already familiar with this new technology, but it definitely deserves spreading. Watch the introduction video of their mind-blowing holographic sheets.
