3d Scanning

3d Scanning

3d scanning can be used in a multitude of industries and situations:

  • prototyping, reverse engineering, quality control
  • design, ergonomics, surface capture
  • CGI for movies and gaming
  • heritage preservation, art, restorations, virtual museums
  • medical, orthopedics, prosthetics

The actual scanning of the item happens quickly; the bulk of time is spent post processing afterward to align and clean the scans.

I can deliver the scanned result into one of several 3D formats, such as Autodesk Maya, 3DMax, Autocad, ZBrush, Blender, Mudbox, Geomagic, Rapidform and many others. Typically, I’ll send the .obj and .stl files unless you specify something different.

If you choose to go with a parametric CAD model, I can deliver your files in all the popular formats such as Solidworks .sldprt, Parasolid .x_t/ .x_b, IGES, STEP, and more.

Items to be scanned can be shipped directly to me, or I can bring the scanner to you to for an on-location scan.  I’m located in Temecula, CA; not too far from San Diego or LA.
