Our full-color, high-resolution 3D scanning services can help you create digital models from physical objects. With 3D scanning, you can easily digitize handmade prototypes, recreate discontinued parts, and design aftermarket parts or accessories.

The models produced by 3D scanning are readily 3D printed and machined. They can also be converted to parametric CAD with our reverse engineering services.

What Is 3D Scanning?

3D scanning allows you to create a digital model from a physical object by capturing the exact contours and dimensions of the object. This model accurately reflects the geometry of the real-world object, enabling you to modify the design, compare the scan to the original CAD, create form-fitting aftermarket parts, or recreate a discontinued product that might no longer be on the market. At 3 Space, we most frequently use blue light 3D scanners, so our 3D scanning services are non-contact and non-destructive.

Advantages and Benefits of 3D Scanning

3D scanning is the fastest way to accurately capture the geometry of a physical object, making it ideal for quickly identifying problems with production parts. And nothing is faster or more effective than 3D scanning for creating CAD models from a physical object. Our high-resolution 3D scanner is capable of capturing the most detailed features of an object, providing detail and accuracy that other methods cannot.

The 3 Space 3D Scanning Process

Depending on the size and other qualities of the object you would like scanned, you can ship or hand-deliver it to us. We can also conduct 3D scanning at your facility for objects that cannot be transported. When you work with 3 Space, 3D scanning is just the beginning of the services we offer. If you’re trying to determine the cause of production problems, our engineers can compare 3D scan data to your original cad to identify any deviations. And if you’re developing a new product, we can help you with the design, 3D print your prototypes and even manufacture your final parts.

Types of Industries That 3D Scanning Is Best Used

While the potential applications for 3D scanning are limitless, 3 Space has extensive experience 3D scanning for the automotive, medical and robotics industries.,3D scanning’s speed, accuracy and diverse applications — whether it’s creating replacement parts, custom tooling or troubleshooting production issues — makes it ideal for these fast-paced, demanding industries.
