3D Scanning

The process of 3D scanning typically involves the following steps:

  1. Prepare the object: Make sure the object you want to scan is clean and ready for scanning.

  2. Scan setup: Position the 3D scanner properly and set it up for accurate measurements.

  3. Scan the object: The scanner uses lasers or light to capture the object's shape and gathers information about its surface.

  4. Process the data: Special software takes the scanned information and turns it into a digital model, like a detailed 3D picture.

  5. Clean up and refine: Fix any imperfections or errors in the digital model to make it look better and more accurate.

  6. Customize the model: Add colors, textures, or make adjustments to the digital model as needed.

  7. Get the final 3D model: Once everything looks good, you can save or export the digital model in a format that can be used for 3D printing.

That's it! Now you have a digital copy of your real-world object, which you can then use to 3D print it or do other cool things with it.

Why Use 3D Scanning?

3D Scanning is best used when an item contains greatly detailed contours that cannon be replicated in CAD. A great example of this would be a statue.
