The Molinos de Campo de Criptana, or windmills in the tradition of Don Quixote, are some of the last remaining 16th century mills preserved in Spain.
We scanned the entire internal mechanism of one of the last with a complete, hand-carved, gear system.
These animations show renderings of point clouds that CVAST created by scanning the Molinos de Campo de Criptana using terrestrial laser scanners. Especially interesting is the original mechanism of the windmill, visible in both animations.
