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.
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?
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?
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.
