Research Report: Reverse Engineering and 3D Scanning

3D scanning is revolutionizing how engineers digitize parts. Not long ago, if you had a physical object and wanted to create a 3D model of it, you had one option: bust out the calipers, measure every nook and cranny, and create the model yourself.

Now, thanks to 3D scanners, you can quickly digitize an object and generate a CAD model that can be used for myriad of engineering applications.

The applications of 3D scanning are enormous: A part that’s no longer offered by the original manufacturer can be scanned and 3D printed. Complex or organic geometries can be captured almost instantly, and time-consuming reverse engineering applications can be done in a fraction of the time, and with greater accuracy. But those are only a few of the benefits of the technology. In this research report, you will treated to an in-depth exploration of the power of 3D scanning, and its ability to transform industry.

In this research report, you’ll learn:
  • Examples of 3D scanning from industries, including automotive, aerospace, architecture, medicine and more.
  • The types of 3D scanning technologies that are available and what applications they are best suited to address.
  • What it takes to get started with 3D scanning and more.
