HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – “One of the things that really made it worthwhile is that one of the kids, Michael, came up to me and said, ‘This is fantastic and I will remember this forever.’ That just gave me a good, warm-and-fuzzy feeling,” said Ron Harrison, head of American Lidar, a one-man laser scanning service provider operation based here in Hot Springs.

He’s referring to a project he’s recently completed with the local high school’s EAST (Environmental and Spatial Technologies) program, whereby these high school students scanned and modeled an underground tunnel for the purposes of helping with a city engineering problem involving flash flooding in the downtown area.

“The city is fixing to breach the tunnel and get some equipment down there and clean it out and channelize it so they can improve the drainage,” Harrison said, “so the kids came up with the idea of scanning the tunnel and then printing it out on the 3D printer they recently built.”
