    New HD Mode Available for Artec 3D Scanners

    October 27, 2020

    Artec 3D announces the newest innovation to their line of 3D scanners. A new software upgrade dubbed "HD Mode" powered by a new internal AI more than doubles the resolution of its existing Eva and Leo handheld scanners to 0.2 mm. The new HD mode has an elite level of noise reduction in both raw data and final model, making scanned objects ready for reverse engineering, as well as many other applications, without needing any editing.

    Using 3D Scanning for Heritage Preservation

    October 16, 2020

    3D scanning and 3D printing are impacting the world of historical preservation. Whether it is scanning a city center or documenting the details of an extinct civilization, 3D scanning is making the ancient world accessible in ways we never before imagined. This is relevant now more than ever to researchers, as the artifacts they typically must examine are quite old, and in many cases extremely fragile. Thanks to 3D scanning these objects and many more can be accurately documented with no risk to the original artifact.

    Surprising Ways a Criminal Justice Department Can Use 3D Printing

    September 18, 2020

    Throughout this series of articles, we have looked at how different departments across multiple universities have used 3D printing as part of their curricula and projects. So far, we have explored areas such as Performing Arts, Engineering and Chemistry. With its versatility, 3D printing has impacted areas that one wouldn't normally consider when it comes to implementing these technologies. Did you know that some universities have used 3D printing to solve cold cases? Let's look at some examples throughout this article in our series.

    Reverse Engineering and Legacy Data Recovery as a Service

    August 10, 2020

    TriMech’s Project Engineering Group (PEG) provides different design services across various industries. One of the common requests we get from our clients is the creation of 2D or 3D files of existing products which can be accomplished through reversed engineering. Some of the reverse engineering services we have provided include drawings that are ready for mass production with appropriate GD&T applied or a fully featured CAD model to be utilized in the design process and more! In this article, we look at three ways in which PEG can support your projects using 3D scanning for reverse engineering.

    How Companies are Using 3D Scanning for Quality Assurance

    May 1, 2020

    In today’s design and manufacturing world, things are more competitive than ever before. For most companies this means that to stay ahead of the competition, their designs must be perfect, but it also means that the final production quality must be spot on as well to ensure customer satisfaction.

    How To Bridge 3D Scanning With 3D CAD

    April 13, 2020

    Did you know that 3D scanning has been around since Egyptian times? Okay, maybe not so much in the way we think of 3D scanning today, but they developed the early concepts of reverse engineering by creating 3D plaster-cast replicas. Fast forward to today’s scanners, which use laser and structured light technology that can capture highly accurate scans that range from very small, intricate objects to much larger objects in a fraction of the time! It’s easy to appreciate how far this technology has come over the years and the many different industries that 3D scanning is helping revolutionize. In this article, we’re going to cover some of the ways you can get your 3D scanning data into a 3D CAD environment where you can interact, manipulate and make the most of it.

    Surprising Ways an Archaeology or Anthropology Department can Use 3D Printing

    April 10, 2020

    Throughout previous articles in our series, we’ve discussed how 3D printing is beneficial for different education departments such as architecture, fine arts and chemistry. To continue this series, we want to review how 3D printing, along with 3D scanning, is also bringing benefits to the study of archaeology. These technologies are being used in Archeology or Anthropology departments at many universities and quickly replacing traditional methods of replicating and studying historic artifacts and fossils.

    Surprising Ways a Fine Arts Department can Use 3D Printing

    February 24, 2020

    Additive manufacturing is alive and well in the manufacturing disciplines, and as I mentioned in the first blog of this series, it’s also impacting the education sectors. In addition to architecture, additive manufacturing is used in other departments such as the Fine Arts. There are many disciplines that fall under the category of “Fine Arts,” but for the topic at hand we are going to discuss how digital scanning and 3D printing are revolutionizing the traditional means of sculpting and even fashion.
