3D Measurement Services Applications
Our technologies will capture 3D measurements from objects as small as a pin head or as large as a nuclear power generation facility. With this 3D, digital data in hand, there is a limitless spectrum of applications. Our team of highly skilled professionals will transform the raw point cloud or CMM data into output formats that are the foundation for design, documentation, visualization, inspection and analysis.
Starting with your specifications for the application, we will recommend the best technologies and a suitable file format, such as mesh or 3D CAD data, to meet your project’s requirements. In some cases, we may recommend a combining our short-range, non-contact scanning and PCMM systems with our long-range, laser scanning or optical tracking technologies. But leave that detail to us. For now, focus on what you need to do and contact us to discuss the next step.
The catch-all term often used for this application is “reverse engineering,” but there is so much more to this category of uses for 3D scanners and portable CMMs, including:
- Product design and manufacturing
- Facilities maintenance and plant engineering
- Architectural and civil engineering
- Custom manufacturing
The 3D measurement data from our scanners and PCMMs offers a comprehensive definition of a physical object that is used for measurement, inspection, comparison and reporting. We can deliver 3D color maps, first article inspection reports or 3D models for computer simulation and analysis programs.
- Product and tool inspections
- Performance simulation and analysis
- Problem diagnosis and troubleshooting
”Art and architecture“ doesn’t even begin to cover the broad spectrum of applications outside of design, engineering, inspection and analysis. Below is a partial list of the possibilities.
- Artist design
- Historic preservation
- Computer animation and special effects
- Antiquities archival
- Photo-realistic renderings
