3D Scanning Service
A 3D scanner is a device that analyzes a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (i.e. color). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. 3D scanners are used extensively by the entertainment industry in the production of movies and video games. The purpose of a 3D scanner is usually to create a point cloud of geometric samples on the surface of the object. Those points can then be used to create the shape of the subject. Color information can also be collected from the surface of the subject.
3D scanners are used by the entertainment industry to create digital 3D Models for video games and movies. They are also utilized in virtual cinematography. Where a real-world equivalent of a model exists, it's faster to scan the real-world object than to manually create a model using 3D modeling software.
Other common applications of 3D scanning include:
• Industrial design
• Medical CAD/CAM
• Orthotics and prosthetics
• Quality control/inspection
• Documentation of cultural artifacts
• Quality assurance
• Industrial metrology
• Material processing and production
• Entertainment industry
• Reverse engineering
• Cultural heritage preservation
• Documentation of historical sites
• Forensic documentation
• Construction industry
• Civil engineering
• Replacement of missing or older parts
