3D laser scanning is intended for fast and accurate digitization of real, functional or design parts. For 3D scanning, we use the latest generation of the Creaform Handyscan 700 mobile laser scanner. The advantage of the mobile device is the possibility of scanning outdoors or scanning components directly at the customer's premises.
In general, 3D scanners are devices that are designed for digitizing various 3D objects. After digitizing the object, we get a 3D model on the computer, which we can further edit in various programs (e.g. for reverse engineering, inspection,...). The resulting data model is processed with high accuracy and can become the basis for 3D printing.
The biggest advantage of a handheld 3D scanner is its mobility. Thanks to its portability, it is possible to scan almost anything and anywhere (both indoors and outdoors), with the added benefit of easy access to confined spaces.
The program renders the scanned data in real time. The output from the scanner is a polygon network in *.STL, *.OBJ, *.WRL format. The scanner does not distinguish the color of the scanned surface. It thus enables virtually unlimited 3D scanning, regardless of the size, complexity, material or color of the surface of the scanned object.
