A technique is disclosed that provides a real-time above-hole method of
assessing the drill string dynamic behavior, and drill pipe segment physical
characteristics, in petroleum drill rigging applications. A 3D imaging system assesses the
wear and tear of each unique drill pipe segment, and allows the rejection of pipe
segments prior to usage downhole
