Large Object 3D Scanning Services

What types of large objects can be scanned?

In truth, just about anything! If the scanner can see it, it can be scanned. Here are some examples of large objects that can be scanned: 

Executive Jet Aircraft
Entire Aircraft
tree 3d scanning services
turbine blade 3d scanning services
Wind Turbines
car digital 3d model
Cars and Trucks
helicopter 3D scanning
boat 3d scanning
Boat Hulls
tank 3d scanning
Tanks & Vessels
staircase 3d scanning services
Eagle Statue

How accurate are the results?

3D scanning is accurate up to 1mm for most applications, but depending on which scanner is used, accuracy in the 1 mm range is achievable.  We select the most efficient 3D scanning method that can meet your minimum accuracy requirement. By identifying the least amount of accuracy that you can live with, we can optimize the process to save you money. 

Why do companies scan large objects?

Common reasons include: 

  • To archive or reproduce molds, fixtures and tooling
  • Document and preserve hand-built designs
  • Reverse-engineer a part that has no drawings
  • Duplicate a part
  • Re-create a part using new methods such as 3D printing
  • Inspect parts for accurate manufacturing
  • Create drawings and prints for government certification
  • Obtain models for FEA and CFD simulation
  • Create a new mold for forming tool for a par

What can you do with a 3D model created by reverse engineering services?

Because of the high quality models produced during the reverse engineering process, the models happen to be very versatile. Among the many things that are possible:

  • Machining & molding
  • 3D printing
  • Making changes to the design
  • Create 2D Drawings 
  • Exploded 3D visualizations and animations
  • Comparisons with other parts or scans
  • Can be used to design mating parts or packaging
  • Drawings can be sent overseas for manufacturing instead of the part

Alternatively, you can just keep the 3D model for safekeeping as documentation for future reference knowing, should the part ever be lost or destroyed, that you have sufficient information build another one. The sky is the limit as to what you can do once the object is in its digital form.
