This is a non-contact, highly accurate optical method of data capture which can be applied to objects of widely differing sizes. The resulting scans provide complete surface observation, recording, measurement modelling and visualisation rather than being confined to just a few critical points.
Our scanner is capable of capturing detail down to 10 microns (10 micrometres or 10×6 metres)!
It is particularly useful in capturing freeform and complex surfaces which can present real difficulties for more traditional techniques which can only sample the surface data.
The results can be sent straight to a 3D printer, brought into a 3D surface or solid modelling software package and/or used for comparison against a reference model for quality control/deviation analysis.
