What areas in the USA you do serve?
How does a 3D scanner work?
Can I scan something for 3D printing?
What types of output files can be obtained?
Many standard 3D files can be produced including Solidworks, STL for 3D printing, AutoCAD, STEP, IGES, XYZ, ReCap and many more. Here is a more extensive list of the file formats you can get from 3D scanning services.
Will 3D Scanning damage my part?
No. 3D Laser scanning is a non-contact technique. For highly reflective parts, we may coat the part with a light talcum powder which is easliy removed.
Are 3D scanning services safe?
Our on-site laser scanning process uses eye-safe instruments in most cases. For flammable environments we use an explosion-proof scanner. 3D scanning promotes safety because it permits you to take measurements from a safe distance from your plant hazards.
What types of 3D scanners do you use? Are they for sale?
Can I do the scanning myself?
DIY 3D scanning may be an option for you. Scans can be captured using a simple camera in a process called photogrammetry. 3D scanning DIY kits can also be bought on ebay for under $200. It is probably not going to be as accurate as a professional scanner, but If you have the time and patience, you can do DIY 3D scanning for free.
