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.

Making the Perfect Camera Mount

November 16, 2018

It's finally fall! For everyone who was dying in the summer sun, we finally made it and get some relief from the heavy heat! To me, fall is the time for watching leaves change color, eating my share of turkey on Thanksgiving and my favorite, riding my motorcycle through the mountains! Every year I cram as many weekend rides into the Blue Ridge Mountains to see the trees and enjoy the crisp air as possible. Like many riders, I have a camera to capture all the great scenery, as well as any road hazards. I typically mount my camera on the motorcycle itself, however, that’s only because I can’t find a mount that perfectly fits my helmet.

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.

3D Scanning as a Quality Assurance Tool

September 18, 2018

3D scanning is a powerful tool for designers and engineers. The advantages are clear for many applications when a tool, like the Artec Space Spider, is used to take full color, 3-dimensional scan data of existing objects. Scans like the drill below could be used to reverse engineer the drill’s geometry to create bracketry, packaging material or even can be used to create a new and better version of the same part. Yet many engineers do not consider the power of a 3D scanner as a tool for a Quality Assurance (QA)/Quality Control (QC) application.

How to Use Multiple Scanners in the Same Scanned File

September 28, 2017

Think of an object or scenario that you want to capture and render into a CAD software. Imagine the color, transparency, surface finish and size. Is it compatible to 3D scan? If so, what 3D scanning technology (or technologies) make the most sense to use?

In this blog, we explore how to choose and use multiple scanners in the same scanned file. Here's how:
