3D Scanning Ask the Expert

Equipment Spotlight: Hexagon Romer 3D Scanner

3D Scanning is a process of digitally collecting information on the shape of an object using a line of laser light, with collected data used to create three-dimensional models. 3D scanning can be used for product benchmarking, rapid prototyping, CAD to part comparison, reverse engineering, point-cloud inspection, virtual assembly, quality control processes, and additive manufacturing. The […]
