3D shape capture technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Hardware and software allow you to collect larger datasets than ever before. How do you manage all that data and convert it into something you can use?
Join us as we host an information session on 3D Shape capture data manipulation at the Industrial Technology Centre. Learn how this technology can work for you.
Shape capture techniques such as laser scanning can be used for
- Part-to-CAD analysis
- First article and supplier quality inspection
- Large-scale tooling inspection and adjustment
- Large castings inspection
- Large moulds/dies design or inspection
- Large part alignment
- Reverse engineering
Shape capture data can be manipulated in a number of ways to produce useful part data.
- Convert point clouds to CAD models, complete with history
- Create surfaces to compare to CAD data
- Convert scans to lightweight NURBS surfaces
- Incorporate legacy parts into current designs
- Incorporate or freeform designs into existing CAD models
- Create archival records of rare atifacts
