A 3D scanner is a device that captures a real object or environment as a 3D shape data. The collected 3D information is converted into digital data commonly called 3D scan data or scan data. 3D scan data is a set of points. A point represents a location on a real object and contains the X, Y and Z coordinates. Numerous points con be used to describe a real object.MORE INFO ABOUT 3D SCANNING SERVICES
The traditional design process is the creation of a final product through a chosen design process, such as concept designing or detailed designing used to create "something" from "nothing". The Reverse Design process can create valuable design data by capturing digitized shape information from a real object by using 3D scanning technologies, such as CMMs (Coordinate-Measurement Machine), laser scanners, structured light digitizer or industrial CT Scanning (Computed tomography). Design intent can be extracted from shape information.
The Reverse Modelling process is the process of creating the best 3D model from the scan data (Point Cloud or Mesh) generated in the Scan Data processing phase. These methods can be used solely or mixed with the other methods according to the desired output.
Creating an optimized mesh from scan data
We can create the best mesh from scan data by cleaning defects, filling missing holes, modifying its shape, and optimizing mesh structure, according to the purpose of utilizing.
Analyzing the model shape
Creating a reference prototype model by using Rapid Prptotyping technologies
Creating a 3d feature model based on the analyzed design intent and elements from 3D scan data
We can define features with parameters based on the analyzed design intent and elements from 3D scanned object. The created features can be reused, redefined, modified and translated by controlling parameters.
Manufactoring a new product with enhanced functions based on existing product
Deplicating the target product which does not have a CAD model
Analyzing design elements of another part of product
Creating a 3D freeform model based on the optimized mesh from 3D scan data
We can effectively and rapidly extract an accurate freeform surface from the shape of a 3D scanned object, by using various tools such as Auto surfacing, Mesh Fitting and Boundary fitting
Creating outer forms of aesthetic model, such as car body and outer cover of consumer products
Manufacturing a new product based on the human body shape in the medical or dental fields
Creating a complex 3D model from scan data
We can rapidly create a complex 3D feature model by mixing parameters features created by using Parametric Feature Modelling method and free-form surfaces created by using Fitting Surface Modelling method. The resulting 3D feature model can be reused, redefined, modified and translated by controlling parameters maintaining its outer free form shape.
