Three-dimensional or 3D scanning is a nondestructive optical technique that quickly and accurately captures shape data.
3D scanning has been used in shape data collection and measurement for many years. Recent changes have increased the capacity for collecting and manipulating large amounts of data, faster, in a way that is more useful for users.
3D Shape Data Manipulation
ITC can modify scan data provided by clients to suit their product development requirements. This data can be used to create 3D geometry models, which can be easily integrated into your CAD environment.
3D Scanning Uses
- Reverse engineering to provide accurate manufacturing design data
- Part & tool inspection
- Product redesign and analysis
- Rapid prototyping
- Packaging design
- Aftermarket parts
- Virtual models for marketing and consumer testing
- Cultural preservation or re-creation of historical monuments or relics
- Science and medicine – orthotics and prosthetics
- Entertainment to create 3D animation or video game avatars and characters
- Architecture and construction – design and renovation of buildings
ITC uses an EXAscan 3D scanner and a MaxSHOT 3D optical coordinate measuring system which generates files capable of being imported and quickly processed by most modeling applications.
