ORTHO-PHOTOGRAPHIC DEVICE DEVELOPED FOR DRAWING PLANS FROM PHOTOGRAPHS

A joint research and development project between Hitachi Zosen and the Japan Ship's Machinery Development Association has resulted in the production of the Draft-Camera, a device that can draw plans, such as piping layouts from photographs of the models. The Draft-Camera obtains orthographically-projected photographs from assembled models of piping arrangements or other complicated three-dimensional structures. The photographs are sharp and dimensionally accurate. Using the photographs as drawings, however, calls for a particular techniques of photo-to-drawing conversion which has also been developed.
