3D Scanning

IEE offer in-house and on-site 3D Scanning services using our Portable  Creaform3D HandyScan 700 

Scan Accuracy / Up to 0.030 mm

Volumetric accuracy / 0.020 ± 0.060 mm/m

If you are new to 3D Scanning then take a look at the sample project below demonstrating how we create a solution to a problem by using 3D Scanning.

Worn Parts & No Original Replacement Parts or Drawings!

In this case we had a part with no technical drawings or replacement profiles. 

Step 1 - Data Acquisition

The part must be Prepared, Cleaned, Positioning Targets Applied and then 3D Scanned.

From The
Physical World 
To The
Digital World

Step 2 - The object is taken from the physical world to the digital world.

Data Extraction

Step 3 - We are now able to extract necessary information such as bolt hole axis / positions inside VX Model to reverse engineer all the individual parts.

Reverse Engineered CAD Model

Step 4 - All parts are individually Reverse Engineered to become a Parametric/Dimensioned computer aided design 3D Model.

Displayed are the individual parts
