In the last year, we wanted to create a video as part of Synopsys’ community outreach efforts that could help 6-12-year-olds understand our technology in a fun and relatable way. The video shows how the blue-ringed octopus specimen was obtained, scanned, modeled and animated using Simpleware ScanIP software, and finally 3D printed. We especially wanted to communicate some quite complex technical information in a way that would be accessible to younger viewers.
You can see how the entire process came together in the final video below. We hope that you and your children enjoy it and learn something about the blue-ringed octopus and how science and engineering helped look inside it.
