3D Scanning: The process of capturing 3D Data from existing objects or environment to construct digital 3D models 3D Scanning. 3D scanners are typically used to create a point cloud of organic shapes or geometric samples on the surface of the subject. 3D Scanners: Industrial CT SCanners, Laser, Long Range, White Light & Blue Light

White/Blue Light Scanner: Non-Contact Structured-Light 3D scanners project a fringe pattern onto the part to view deformations of the pattern on the subject. The pattern is then projected onto the subject using either an LCD projector or other stable light source.

Laser Scanner: Hand held laser scanners create a 3D image through the triangulation mechanism. A laser dot or line is projected onto the object from the hand held device, which measures the distance to the surface by a sensor. Data is collected in relation to an internal coordinate system and used to collect data when the scanner is in motion.

Industrial CT Scanner: A Metrology grade computer-aided tomographic process, usually x-ray computed tomography, that (similar to medical imaging). Industrial CT scanning gives you access to the inner characteristics of objects without requiring disassembly. X2 Metrology uses CT scanners  to build 3D models that allow the user to evaluate the interior and exterior of the item being scanned. This allows for a in-depth analysis of object dimensions, wall thickness, porosity, assembly defects, reverse engineering, comprehensive comparisons and a valuable quality is the ability to use cross sections for otherwise hidden features.

Long Range Scanner: Long range 3D scanning technology is used when an existing condition is needed to be known or verified. This could be to examine the complex shape involved, extract 3D measurements, or perform feasibility studies. Long range scanning for accurately capturing 3D scan data may also be used:

  • To scan buildings
  • Rock formations
  • Hospitals
  • Aircraft (interior/exterior)
  • Architectural assets
  • Part to cad comparison
  • Bridges and roadways
  • Buildings (interior/exterior)
  • Construction site factories
  • Plant floor layouts
  • Landscapes

  • Bridges and roadways
  • Buildings (interior/exterior)
  • Construction site factories
  • Plant floor layouts
  • Landscapes
  • Retaining wall marine ships
  • Monuments
  • Power generation plants
  • Manufacturing process piping runs

This enables you to view the as built region in a virtual world. The point cloud data can also be surfaced to generate a CAD model, which can be used for comparison or reconstruction.
