Are there real benefits to adopting 3D printing? Much of the spotlight is focused on the mass adoption of 3D printing by consumers or the potential of 3D printing. There is a lesser emphasis on discussing the positive impact 3D printing has on organizations that already adopted the technology to help them realize real benefits now. We’ll take a look beyond the hype to examine concrete examples of how 3D printing has made a real impact on different industries.
Artec continues to redefine what it truly means to be a user-friendly 3D scanner with the new Artec Studio 12 software, the scanning engine behind Artec 3D scanners. How does Artec Studio 12 achieve this goal? Let’s look at some key features in this latest version.
If it’s your first time purchasing a 3D scanner, it can be an overwhelming experience. How do you know which one will actually be able to solve your business problem after purchase? Here are some things you need to take into account to ensure you get the right 3D scanning solution that will produce a return on investment.
Artec Leo just came out this month and there’s a lot of buzz and excitement surrounding its launch. What’s remarkable about the new scanner is that it’s a professional grade 3D scanner that truly encapsulates an intuitive mobile scanning experience while attaining high resolution 3D models with great accuracy.
Every day, we have great conversations with people who are looking to find the right 3D scanner to help solve work-related challenges. There are times when they have already decided on whether to get a stationary or handheld 3D scanner before realizing one might be better suited for their applications after talking with us. How do you know if a stationary or a handheld 3D scanner is most suited for your needs?
Our team will be a part of the 3D Scanning Workshop at the Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) Conference and Expo to demonstrate how 3D scanning technology plays a crucial role in the additive manufacturing process.
There are two types of 3D measurement equipment commonly used for reverse engineering to capture 3D measurements of a reference part due to their affordability, portability, and versatility: contact 3D scanners and non-contact 3D scanners. In this article, we will discuss the differences in the reverse engineering workflow for these types of measurement tools, their advantages, and drawbacks.
Building anything from scratch can be difficult, especially when you don’t know how to approach it or where to start. Reverse engineering makes the design process much easier by using existing knowledge and building off of it. It eliminates the need to design from a blank slate. In part 1 of our reverse engineering series, we cover the basics of reverse engineering from scan data to CAD.
As a biological anthropologist, Claire Terhune’s lab in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Arkansas is dedicated to understanding how modern humans evolved from other primates, and how early humans migrated out of Africa and dispersed into Asia and Europe. Discover how she uses 3D scanning technologies to advance anthropological research by discovering more about our shared evolutionary path.
Be our guest and receive a free expo pass on us to FABTECH 2016 in Las Vegas on November 16-18, 2016. The pass gives you access to 1,300+ exhibits, hands-on product demos, networking, keynotes, and special events.
There are two main options to consider if you need a 3D scanner for your upcoming project and you don’t have access to the equipment at your disposal. You can invest in getting 3D scanning capabilities in-house by buying a 3D scanner, or you can outsource your 3D scanning work by hiring a contractor or a company that will provide 3D scanning services for you. How do you know which option is right for you?
3D printing is an interactive technology that gets students engaged about learning. 3D printers give teachers new ways to teach various school subjects by giving students the hands-on experience. While it’s easy to get excited about implementing 3D printers into the classrooms, it doesn’t come without hurdles. Let’s examine how to overcome these challenges.
This year marks a very special time for us as we’ve been in business for 17 years. To celebrate this special milestone, we are hosting an Open House on September 27, 2016 from 4:30 to 6:00pm at our office. RSVP to the event.
Artec said that even a novice can create professional 3D scanning results using the new Artec Studio 11 software. We put this to the test and got our administrative staff who doesn’t have experience in 3D scanning to give it a go. Check out her results in our latest article.
3D scanning–more commonly known in the medical field as 3D imaging–is a valuable tool for collecting face and body 3D measurements quickly without any physical contact. With this information, patients can be properly diagnosed to ensure they get the proper treatment.
When shopping for a professional-grade 3D scanner to use in industry applications, people are often surprised to find out these systems are substantially more expensive compared to its consumer-grade counterpart. Why is there such a discrepancy in price?
Working at GoMeasure3D, I feel fortunate to be able to use the latest 3D technologies on a regular basis. Their versatility inspires innovative applications. I especially love that these tools are accessible to me when I rebuild muscle cars, which is a passion of mine outside of work.
3D scanning technology has been proven valuable in scientific research due to its ability to capture high accuracy measurements of specimens in great detail. This is the first study that used 3D scanning to monitor the growth rate of LIVE corals without harm.
GoMeasure3D team will be exhibiting at the Southeast Design-2-Part Show held in Atlanta, GA to showcase the latest 3D scanning and printing technology for improving process efficiency and product quality.
We’re excited to announce the introduction of the Airwolf Axiom 3D printers to our product line. To celebrate this milestone, we are offering special deals on rapid prototyping packages to help you improve the efficiency of your product design and development process.
