If you could go back in time, and perfect a design flaw on a product you developed would you?
With the availability of 3D scanning, A.P. Extrusion can make a 3D object scan of that product which will allow you to do just that. There’s no reason to abandon an older design that could benefit from minor adjustments.
With the aid of 3D scanning, engineers and designers can detect areas of poor product performance. But perhaps it’s not even a product issue that needs fixing, but an advancement in technology that forces a design feature to change to accommodate an upgraded electrical component in a piece of equipment.
Why start from the beginning when there’s 3D laser scanning services available to facilitate your design team’s efforts?
How it Works. 3D model scanning converts a physical object—i.e.,your product—into digital 3D data by extracting usable data from the product, thus allowing you to evaluate it in-depthfor purposes of quality inspection, re-design, rapid prototyping—the options are endless.
Should you consider 3D scanning a viable solution? To evaluate whether your company could benefit from 3D object scanning, below are several key areas affecting the product development that can help your design team make that determination.
3D model scanning could benefit the design process if:
- Documentation Improvements of your product are necessary.
- If you work with parts and shapes that are complex.
- If you are required to design your product to accommodate someone else’s part.
- If CAD models are outdated – a 3D scan will provide an updated version
- If you need to replace missing or older parts.
And while these are only a few examples as to when 3D object scanning is useful, it’s evident that advantages of 3D scanning will prove to be cost-effective and will enhance the overall design process.
At A.P. Extrusion our team will work closely with you through the 3D scan process to ensure that you achieve the results you need. We encourage you to contact us to learn more about the full breadth of the 3D scanning services we offer.
