3D Scanning Forensic Methods

January 2, 2019

Forensic teams have been documenting crime scenes with cameras for decades. They also use approximate measurement methods, such as a tape measure, that can only be performed at the crime scene. The 2D images that cameras generate, even with the highest quality, lack crucial data that only spatial relations between objects can create. These parameters can be of such critical value that they may determine whether the criminal justice system ends up prosecuting an innocent person and vindicating the offender. 3D scanners may be just what they need to change the outcome.

3D Scanner Technology to Reverse Engineer a Custom Mouse Case

October 12, 2018

3D scanning is an increasingly popular technology and is mostly used for reverse engineering and quality assurance. Reverse engineering is commonly known as backward engineering because it's the process through which information is extracted from pre-existing objects to reproduce them based on the information gathered.

Make Your Own Solution: Tripod Attachment

November 8, 2016

Don't you hate when new technology doesn't fit your tripod from the 80's? Us too! That's why in this week's “Make Your Own Solution” blog, I decided to work through the problems I encounter using my old tripod and tackle new ways to attach a cell phone to the mount. This is the solution I came up with:

Make Your Own Solution: Custom Car Logo

September 23, 2016

Join me, one of TriMech's Application Engineers, as I help a friend replace an old, chipped Chevy logo with a 3D printed replacement. I used SOLIDWORKS and the Stratasys uPrint 3D printer to make this logo in only a few hours.
