Our hand held, portable, engineering grade 3D Scanner permits the scanning of a wide variety of items in terms of their material, size and texture.  These images show the breadth of it's capabilities, demonstrating that we can scan whole vehicles, individual panels, castings, sculptures, ceramics, household items, food, architectural objects, the human form, works of art.....and there will be more.  The Scanner faithfully captures the shape and proportions of an object to a volumetric tolerance of 0.3mm per metre and a maximum resolution of 0.5mm  It stores captured data as a cloud point mesh, either with or without the texture or colour of the subject matter.

Captured scan data can either be imported directly into CAD in the form of an .stl file and used to create a model, or it can be prepared for CAD work by first being edited in our Scanner software.  The latter option is generally the preferred one because the range of tools available permit the scan file to be edited for unwanted data and tidied up to reduce file size.  The software also recognizes common shapes (cylinders, cones, spheres, planes etc) and allows an auto-surface to be created - both of these tools are greatly beneficial when creating the CAD model.
