3D Scanning is a fast, efficient process used to collect 3D point cloud data for the creation of 3 dimensional models. Using specialist software, the 3D data is then quickly processed into a triangle mesh, STL or can be converted into an IGES file.
WHAT IS 3D SCANNING USED FOR?
There are a wide range of applications including 3D Modelling, Animation, comparison to CAD and 3D Printing. Due to the speed, accuracy and high quality results that 3D Scanning Systems offer, they are now being used widely as an industry standard.
WHO USES 3D SCANNING?
An ever-growing range of industry sectors including Aerospace, Automotive, Heavy Industry, Research and Development, Investment Castings, Forensic Archaeology, Sculpture/Arts, Medical, Animation, Film Industry, Tool making, Product Design and Product Development.
3D scanning is the fastest way to collect real world data and create a CAD model. It is this CAD model that is required for further design or manufacture.
