How do I quantify my Return On Investment in a 3D scanner?

By Laser Lines’ 3D scanning product specialist Peter Smith You can buy a consumer 3D scanner for £600 or spend up to 6 figures on an industrial unit. Their features and abilities will be as far apart as their prices, but how do you measure the Return On Investment (ROI) on the high value, professional … Continue reading How do I quantify my Return On Investment in a 3D scanner?

Why a 3D scanner is essential for reverse engineering

By Laser Lines’ 3D scanning product specialist Peter Smith Most manufacturing these days starts with 3D CAD drawings. That can be a problem if you need to reproduce something that’s more than a few years old, as you might not have a CAD file to work from. An example might be where a car from … Continue reading Why a 3D scanner is essential for reverse engineering

Save scanning time and improve accuracy with Toolkit Box from Evatronix

With any 3D scanning process, we can only capture data from surfaces of a part that the scanner can illuminate with its projector and “see” with its cameras. This means that, in order to capture a part’s full 3D shape, we need to take multiple scans from various angles and find a way to position … Continue reading Save scanning time and improve accuracy with Toolkit Box from Evatronix

Accuracy is important in 3D scanning, but maybe not why you think

In our last post about 3D scanning, we talked about resolution – and why pixel count shouldn’t be your only consideration. Resolution and accuracy are commonly thought to be one and the same, but they are not. Neither is it true to say that a higher resolution scanner will give a more accurate result. Resolution … Continue reading Accuracy is important in 3D scanning, but maybe not why you think

Busting the resolution myth when buying a 3D scanner

3D scanning product specialist Peter Smith answers the question he is most often asked by people looking for a new 3D scanner. Resolution is often the first-time buyers’ biggest concern when choosing a 3D scanner. With point-and-shoot consumer cameras regularly boasting resolutions over 20-megapixels, they wonder how a five-megapixel scanner can possibly meet their professional … Continue reading Busting the resolution myth when buying a 3D scanner
