Proof of Concept 6: Sensor Inspection

Proof of Concept 6: Sensor Inspection

The Brief:

“To demonstrate potential applications for 3D CAD in visualising device cross-sections and identifying key product features”

The Solution:

Spearhead developed this proof of concept for Automasjon og Data AS, Norwegian specialists in marine and offshore monitoring systems.



This proof of concept contains an interactive 3D object (in this case, a Vaisala WXT520 weather sensor) located within a 3D space. Users are able to navigate around the sensor at will and access functionality to view labels for key features and view a cross section cut-away to show the internal structure.

Through this proof of concept, users can access functionality to:

  • navigate freely around the sensor
  • view features labels
  • view model cross section


The sensor inspection tool is ideally suited as a method of educating staff or clients about products or components, particularly when used in a sales scenario.
