Tips on Getting Quality Scan Data From Your 3D Scanner

3D scanners capture raw 3D measurement data in the form of point cloud or polygon mesh. Post-processing is the modeling stage where you clean up and transform 3D scans into useable form for industry applications. It’s important to realize that no amount of post-processing work can ever save you from poorly scanned data. What can we do to ensure we get quality scans prior to post-processing?

New Software Release

What’s New in Artec Studio 11?
New Automation Features Save Post-Processing Time

People don’t want to get caught up in the technical aspect of 3D scanning. They simply want to pick up the 3D scanner, scan a part, collect surface measurements, and obtain the scan data for use in their projects. The latest version of Artec Studio 11 software makes 3D scanning much more intuitive by automating as much of the post-processing work as possible. The software is the 3D scanning and post-processing engine for Artec 3D scanners.

Artec said that even a novice could create professional results with Artec Studio 11. We put this to the test. Check out the results in our latest blog post.

Geomagic For SOLIDWORKS Streamlines Scan-to-CAD Process

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is an add-in that plugs directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment with industry-leading toolsets to convert point clouds and polygons into solid CAD models.

It makes reverse engineering easier:

  • Use familiar SOLIDWORKS tools and workflows to quickly extract geometry, create sketches, and model solid, featured-based parts.
  • Exact-surfacing tool creates incredibly accurate surfaces from scan data with one-button ease.
  • Scan directly into SOLIDWORKS using popular industrial 3D scanners or import scan files into SOLIDWORKS from popular file formats exported from all 3D scanners.
  • Deviation analysis tool provides real-time information on your features to help make design decisions and maintain design intent.

Forget The Hype. This Is How 3D Printing Will Really Be Used.

An article by Canadian Business sets the record straight on the real applications to 3D printing. Rather than fuelling a movement of makers and tinkerers, the technology will have its biggest impact in enterprise manufacturing. But don’t look for assembly lines to be replaced by building-sized 3D printers that spit out finished products any time soon. Instead, the technology will enable two value-creating steps in the manufacturing process: rapid prototyping and mass-customization.
