3D Scanning

Looking for a 3D model of an object or looking to create spares for an old piece of equipment that is no longer supported.  Psyber-Tech can support on site 3D scanning for large items or for smaller items, simply put them in the post.  3D Scanning Equipment is also available to hire for long term jobs, contact us for more information.

3D Scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a line of light. 3D scanners create “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object. In other words, 3D scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3Drepresentation

There are many benefits to adopting 3D scanning:

  • Who can benefit from 3D scanning – Anyone in manufacturing, engineering, design, development, surveying or testing. 3D scanning technology can be applied at any point in a typical manufacturing cycle, saving time, money and material.

  • Use physical objects to conceptualize the idea – this is done by an industrial designer in clay lead design or foam lead design. 3D scanning can also be applied at the idea concept phase by digitizing objects, then using them as renderings in concept illustrations.

  • Quality control – 3D scanning is used to analyse the “as-built” condition of parts after they have been manufactured. Typically, non-contact technology is used to quickly inspect the overall shape and size of parts, quickly detecting issues such as part warpage or overall scale issues.

  • Engineering – By using 3D scan data an engineer can compare an “as-designed” model to the “as-built” condition of a manufactured part or assembly.
