What is 3D Scanning Useful For?

 

3D scanning can be used in almost any engineering process and setting. 3D scanning technology provides the user with precise measurements and the ability to visualise and modify data with computer-aided design (CAD). The primary uses for 3D scanning include: 

 

Reverse Engieering

REVERSE ENGINEERING: 

Using 3D scanning technology, parts can easily be created into CAD models for reverse engineering.

3D model Comparison

COMPARISON TO 3D MODELS: 

We can ensure that your parts are coming out the same as their CAD models.

Part Verification

PART VERIFICATION: 

Control quality and ensure that parts are working as intended using our part verification process

Prototyping

PROTOTYPING: 

Using a 3D scanner, we can quickly determine your model's dimensions and produce a rapid prototype.

What is 3D Scanning?

The 3D laser scanning process involves scanning a physical object to collect measurement, size, and shape data. The data collected is used to construct a digital 3D model for reverse engineering and part verification.

 

In the past, creating these models was a tedious task, and the process could take a significant amount of time to complete. Thanks to innovations in technology, our team can accurately create 3D models of existing products using handheld 3D scanners. This allows our team to cut lead times and produce more accurate models.

How do 3D scanners work?

3D laser scanners work by projecting lasers over the surface area of an object and using multiple cameras to capture its shape and dimensions. Scan data collected appears as millions of points and is commonly known as a "point cloud". These point clouds can be developed into designer CAD models using specialised software. Our team of experts can alter or verify designs based on your project needs using these CAD models.

Finished Product

CONSULTATION:

The first step of our scanning process is consultation. We will get in touch with you to fully understand the scope of your project and discuss a project roadmap so you understand what you are getting and when it will be complete.

SCANNING:

The second stage of the Process is scanning. This is when we will complete the 3D scanning of the physical object in question. During this phase all the data of your scanned object will be turned into a CAD drawing.

DESIGN:

The third stage is design. Our industrial engineers will work with your CAD design and make any alterations required. The scope of this stage will depend on the objectives outlined during our consultation.

FINISHED PRODUCT:

The final stage is the completion of your scanning process. The scope of this stage will depend on the original consultation you had with us.

Benefits of 3D Scanning

Fast.png

Fast and reliable: 

As mentioned above, 3D scanning is much more time-effective than traditional reverse engineering methods. Scans can be completed with much shorter lead times and are more reliable.

Accurate: 

3D scanning can scan up to millions of points per second depending on the technologies processing speed. This allows for exact measurements of physical parts and objects.

Cost-Effective

Much less labour is needed during the 3D scanning process as opposed to more traditional methods of reverse engineering.
