To Use a 3D Scanning Service – or Not
3D laser scanning is the process of converting physical objects into precise digital models. The size of the object is no problem. You can scan a building or a small tool. Laser scanning lets you quickly and accurately capture your object’s shape and geometries. This process supplies you with a complete digital representation of your object, which you can use for reverse engineering, quality inspection or any other activity that requires an accurate 3D representation of an object.
Benefits of 3D Laser Scanning
- Fast, ultra-accurate results, reducing your time to market (saving you time and money!)
- Complete measurement data of the entire surface of your object, verifying that the as-built part matches your CAD model
- True CAD models for FEA testing of actual geometry to correct problems before parts go into production
- CAD models to validate tooling, even when no current models exist
Profile data of the whole part so assemblies can be digitally put together, revealing inaccuracies and interferences in matched technology and expertise.
