How Structured-Light 3D Scanners Work
(With Video Demonstrations)

Structured-Light 3D Scanner

3D scanners might look like complex technology. But if you think about it, they’re pretty much devices that create digital replicas of physical objects with three-dimensional qualities, or the addition of depth information. It’s similar to using cameras to take photos of the real world into 2D images.

In this article, we’ll explore the mechanics of how a structured-light 3D scanner works, including video demonstrations.

What’s New in SpaceClaim 2017?

SpaceClaim 2017

SpaceClaim 2017 is full of new features and enhancements. It makes it even more intuitive for creating and editing 3D models quickly to speed up your workflow in design, reverse engineering, manufacturing, 3D printing, and simulation.

New features include:

  • Fly Through Feature: Dynamically move through the model and visualize designs from the inside out
  • Produce Faceted Models: Create lattice structures inside of your part to ensure your 3D printed component has the ideal strength-to-weight relationship
  • New Scripting Enhancements: Save editing and remodeling time with automation with no programming skills required
  • Volumetric Sweep: Produce a faceted body for creating and visualizing motion paths or envelopes, or for creating cuts from the path of a moving tool bit in machining operations
  • Flatten Surfaces with Minimal Distortion: With a single mouse click, you can unflatten a design into a 2D surface such as sheet metal
