There are many different devices that can be called 3D scanners. Any device that measures the physical world using lasers, lights or x-rays and generates dense point clouds or polygon meshes can be considered a 3D scanner. They go by many names, including 3D digitizers, laser scanners, white light scanners, industrial CT, LIDAR, and others. The common uniting factor of all these devices is that they capture the geometry of physical objects with hundreds of thousands or millions of measurements.
WB Engineering uses a variety of additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) techniques for our rapid prototyping services. In just a few hours, we can transform your conceptual designs into physical, working prototypes. Our variety of 3D printing options allow for rapid turnaround times on your parts and a wide selection of materials to meet your prototyping needs.
3D scanning opens up a world of possibilities. Imagine being able to capture anything in the physical world, and have a digital model of it in minutes. You don’t have to imagine. Every day, thousands of companies are using 3D scanners and software to:
This is not science fiction. 3D scanners and accompanying software are now within the reach of many. Scanners are faster, less expensive and more accurate. 3D scan processing software is more automated, creates better results, and works faster than ever before.
