    Can 3D Scanning Help Your Business?

    February 8, 2022

    3D printing works by taking digital files and bringing them to life as objects in the real world. 3D scanning does just the opposite – it takes an existing object and captures it digitally. This blog discusses how adding high-resolution 3D scanning to your workflows can help your business make better decisions, save money and reduce your time to market.

    3D Scanning for Universities

    December 20, 2021

    Now that 3D scanners are much more common and accessible to different technical and non-technical fields and practices, it is a fantastic time for universities to get their hands on a scanner for research and education. More engineers in the field are using 3D scanners to create micron-accurate meshes of real objects as a baseline for new CAD designs, and more engineers are expected to have some experience with a scanner. There are other professionals using 3D scanning to their advantage as well, such as architects and designers. With so many uses and scanner options available, you may need a little help to narrow down your list so that you can find the right fit for your research and educational program needs.

    3D Scanning to Gain an Edge on the Competition

    October 19, 2021

    In the world of competitive sports, winning is often measured in milliseconds. Athletes and sports equipment manufacturers are constantly looking for that competitive edge that will put them in the winner’s circle. Because of this, products are constantly being designed and redesigned to find ways to make them lighter, more form-fitting and ergonomic.

    Companies have long been using CAD software to create such designs and utilizing additive manufacturing tools to enhance product development. But one tool, in particular, is fast becoming a go-to instrument for companies looking to cut the product development cycle and to give athletes the edge they are looking for…3D scanning.

    High-Precision, No Problem - A Look at Desktop 3D Scanning

    August 17, 2021

    The need for 3D scanning has been growing in recent years across many different industries, especially when it comes to reverse engineering and 3D printing. As a Project Engineer with the TriMech Project Engineering Group, I have the privilege of working with customers who come to us needing a variety of 3D scanning services in a variety of new and unique applications.

    This exposure provides me with the ability to work with several different scanner technologies - from long-range large-object scanners to small high-precision scanners capable of capturing fine detail. In this article, I'm going to look at one of these scanning technologies that our group has found to be a perfect fit for high-precision applications: the Artec Micro.
