3D Optical Scanning

3D objects/systems (parts, moulds, etc) are scanned by our white-light scanner and thus, a point cloud data is obtained. In next step, by using related softwares, point cloud file is converted into polygonal data (sutfaces) as in stl format which can be used in CAD softwares. Thus, from now on, targeted object is in 3D dimensional solid model shape which can freely be used and manipulated in any CAD software.

Scanning can be done by "Laser" or "Optica" systems. Collecting point type info (by probe) over the object can take days while this process takes only a few hours by 3D optical scanners as more precise and bigger volume data. In general, the time of scanning, is directly related with he size and complexity of the target object. (In optical scanning, sufficient data may not be collected from complex geometries or detailed regions. In such cases, the time and efforts for scanning should be extended.) Followings can be done with .stl file after a proper 3D scanning :

  • Direct machinning (CAM)
  • Dimensional Quality Control.
  • Reverse Engineering.
  • •Rapid Prototyping.
