Metrology Scanners

3D scanners have proved themselves to be extremely useful pieces of equipment for metrology operations, especially in terms of part quality inspection. Much faster than traditional coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), 3D scanners can also map objects’ spatial data with high degrees of accuracy.In industries where precision matters, 3D scanners for metrology offer a cost-effective and quick way to get crucial information about parts, objects, and products.

3D scanners have proved themselves to be extremely useful pieces of equipment for metrology operations, especially in terms of part quality inspection. Much faster than traditional coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), 3D scanners can also map objects’ spatial data with high degrees of accuracy.In industries where precision matters, 3D scanners for metrology offer a cost-effective and quick way to get crucial information about parts, objects, and products.

‍3D metrology scanners obtain spatial data quickly, picking up dense ratios of data points per square to provide high-resolution 3D scan information. Feeding this data into appropriate 3D scanning software for metrology results in a digital 3D model that can be used for analysis and engineering problem solving.
In quality inspection, 3D scanning for metrology is used to compare real objects to CAD model reference points. With the assistive technologies of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), this can result in high levels of automation in research and development (R&D) operations – saving time and, ultimately, project costs in the process.
3D scanners are extremely high resolution compared to conventional CMMs. Conventional devices can capture several hundred data points, whereas modern 3D scanners capture millions of points of spatial data per scan. This means that engineers can find the causes of part deformation as well as simply finding that they exist.
3D scanners are also a much more accessible, user-friendly technology than traditional CMMs. This means that the 3D scanner can be used at various workstations in the metrology process, and by more engineers. This in turn results in more and more accurate spatial data that can be used for big-data analyses of parts and products.
3D scanners are a lot cheaper than most CMMs available today, as well. This – and the many benefits they bring to metrology processes – means that their use in metrology has now become all but ubiquitous.

The availability of desktop 3D scanners has led to uses for precise measurements for engineering operations, art and jewellery making, and all additive manufacturing and 3D printing workflows.

‍3D scanning is valuable to engineers, product designers, and researchers as an important final step in additive manufacturing workflows – as well as acting as a jumping off point for improving on existing designs.
Desktop 3D scanning supports the end-stage of manufacturing processes by providing precise spatial data that can be used for quality assurance. Desktop 3D scanners can be paired with advanced software to automatically detect deviations from the intended size and shape of a manufactured product, and the high resolution that desktop 3D scanners provide allows for designers and engineers to problem solve for the cause of manufacturing defects.
In the design phase, 3D scanning can be used to digitise models made from clay by hand. This digital information can be used with CAD software to create unique and organic shapes for manufacture in a 3D printer.
Desktop 3D scanners enable a hybrid workflow that values successive iterations of a product until the best form is found. The spatial data from 3D scanners can enable robust decision-making in the design and planning stage of any new physical product.

Dental SCanners

Dentistry has adopted 3D scanning technology more readily than almost any other sector. This is no surprise, as the benefits to dentists and patients from dental 3D scanners are clear.Dental 3D scanners work with practice-based 3D printers and dental 3D mapping software to create unique, customised dental products and surgical guides designed for the individual patient and their body.

‍Dental 3D scanners are becoming a key component of digital dentistry, which is now highly popular among practice managers and patients alike. Digital dentistry enables faster turnaround times for custom products, unique communication and learning opportunities, and reduced costs.
Dental 3D scanners capture spatial data inside the mouth with a combination of cameras and LiDAR sensors. Intraoral dental 3D scanners are handheld, and they are designed to take spatial data from inside the patient’s mouth. Desktop dental 3D scanners are used in combination with molds cast in the patient’s mouth, and are more common in dental laboratories.
Digital scans of the patient’s mouth allow for highly accurate dental fixtures and implants to be produced, maximising the chances of a perfect fit for the patient. This extremely high degree of accuracy can be achieved with minimal distress caused to the patient, as 3D scanners can operate quickly and effectively and do not provoke undue anxiety in some patients – unlike metal calipers and form-taking molds.
Patient experience is further enhanced by software that works with 3D dental scanners to help visualise the inside of the mouth. Dentists and patients can more easily communicate over problems, without any lengthy lead times interrupting the flow of conversation from scan, to diagnosis, to treatment options.

Handheld 3D scanners have seen use in aerospace and automotive industries, in manufacturing, and in numerous research and surveying projects. They are convenient, versatile systems that are getting spatial data from hard-to-reach and inconvenient places.

‍Using a handheld 3D scanner is like recording a video or painting with a brush – you need to capture the subject from all angles. The easy maneuverability of handheld 3D scanner designs makes this straightforward, ensuring accurate and high-quality scan data is retrieved.
3D scanners use light and laser sensors to generate digital models of objects in physical space in only seconds. As well as quality assurance and R&D benefits, these handheld 3D scanners have uses for a wide array of business operations, as well as projects at home.
Handheld 3D scanners use structured light and laser triangulation to create a “web” – a spatial model that triangulates data points into a full digital version of a real object.
Handheld 3D scanners enable more efficient iterating in the design cycle, quickly showing where products have deformed or are not working as well as they could be. These problems can be rectified in the design software, and then quickly prototyped with 3D printing technology.

Reverse engineering & scan data Software

To move beyond an image, and fully interact with the objects mapped by 3D scanners, reliable software is essential. Through reverse engineering software it is possible to manipulate a 3D scan into a file that can be printed into an accurate replica with an industry grade level of precision.
READ MORE
3D scanning only provides a series of spatial data points – a numerical dataset with millions of discrete points of information. This information has to be processed to be useful to most people. Choosing the best 3D scanning software with a 3D scanning device is important to get the best from the technology.Specialist reverse engineering software is also important for industries looking to get the most out of 3D scanning. In this way, a 3D scan file can be manipulated into instructions for a 3D printer to create an accurate replica with high degrees of precision and accuracy.

‍3D scanners output scan data in .ply, .obj., or .stl files. The data in these files is in the form of a point cloud or polygonal mesh. To create a CAD model from this data, specialist software is required to speed up and partially automate the process of translating polygons into CAD surfaces

R&D processes that make use of repeating iterations to hone perfect design need accurate and powerful 3D scanning software. This supports designers to work quickly and efficiently, maintaining their ability for creative problem solving.
