Typically standard grips, at this level of competition, need to be reshaped/adjusted relative to hand size and shooting style. Once this manual fettling is complete it is then necessary to reproduce/copy these adjustments for replacement grips and different bows. This is perhaps easier said than done and due to the manual fettling process results in no two grips ever matching perfectly.
To solve this problem Europac3D 3d scanned a grip that had been perfected by Thomas over time and fitted his hand perfectly. An Artec Space spider was chosen to complete the scanning because of its high accuracy and repeatability for relatively small components. The Artec scanner was born out of the need to scan objects in outer space and hence the name ‘Space Spider’, it has thermal stabilization and blue light technology that enables objects to be captured at incredible detail and precision. Total scan time was less than 5 minutes and a triangulated mesh surface model was then created inside of Artec Studio software.
