3D Scanning

3D scanning and data probing

By Using 3D scanning technology, 3Design can offer you a range of solutions to familiar problems that may not have been possible in the past. 3D scanning equipment allows us to scan a variety of objects in all shapes and sizes, by extracting accurate targets from cluttered backgrounds creating a digital profile in minutes. Our 3D scanner uses extreme high-definition technology to produce detailed and accurate scans. The high-quality scans are created by innovative new technology where electro-optical architecture and advanced new algorithms use an array of lasers to scan in parallel.

Computer Aided Design

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Using 3D scanning technology we can measure organic and complex shapes to create rapid designs using your preferred CAD system. These scans create 3D mesh files which can be used as an accurate source for your CAD drawings.

Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

Measure your organic and complex shapes fast and efficiently for your 3D printing needs. We can send healed STL files direct to CNC machinery or to a 3D printer. Majority of modern CAM systems can make tool paths automatically from an STL file.

Science and Medical

Science and Medical

3D technology has equipped scientists with the ability to perform lab and in-field 3D scanning of physical objects to create precise and detailed mesh models. Physical samples can be captured and recorded in a digital format and then examined using the powerful software. The 3D models can then be examined to digitally archive the object for future reference, refute or support a hypothesis, record forensic sites or share information about the object with colleagues.

Art and Architecture

Use 3D scanning to record precise original pieces or produce scaled reproductions of natural or man-made shapes. 3D scanning produces mathematically accurate, high-resolution 3D geometry. This, in combination with full-colour texture maps, means the results are visually captivating. Modern artists are stepping outside the boundaries set by traditional media to use the 3D scanner to create innovative work.

3D technology provides students with superior skills in design, reverse engineering, animation and analysis giving them a competitive edge when they enter the workplace. Unleash students’ creativity by using 3D software to bring objects to life. The time involved in modelling is significantly reduced by scanning, giving students more time to focus on challenging projects that spark their imagination.
