The 1938 Talbot Lago bevel gear we were asked to reverse engineer required a CAD file to create new parts. These parts wear over time and the originals have not been supported since Lago was sold […]
When commissioning 3D scanning services, its crucial to know what the “downstream” application will be. Will the 3D data be used for reverse engineering? 3D printing? CNC milling? Visualization? FEA or CFD? While some downstream applications are more forgiving than […]
3D scanning an LSR Streamliner to make performance improvements before Speed Week at Bonneville. Challenge:
In order to investigate potential modifications, HELIMEC needed to scan the vehicle onsite so that a computer model could be created for CFD analysis. […]
For an accurate representation of these detailed sculptures, with their many nooks and crevices, Stanford University
needed a scanning provider that could deliver extremely high quality 3D scans. Using Three Dimensional Sculptures to Demonstrate and Train Clinical Anatomy and Surgical […]
Scansite 3D used 3D scanning and custom editing techniques to provide crucial steps in restoring a historic Santa Barbara fountain.
The Spirit of the Ocean, Santa Barbara’s iconic and seemingly robust fountain, has been crumbling for decades and is on the […]
Artist Robert Graham recruits Scansite 3D and AP Proto to help him create a new bronze sculpture for the Basilica at Notre Dame University.
