The three-dimensional or 3D-scan - the process of translating the physical form of the real object, products in digital form that is a three-dimensional computer model (3d-model) object.
3D-scanning may be useful in solving the problems of re-engineering, designing fixtures, equipment, spare parts, in the absence of an original computer product documentation, as well as the need to digitize surfaces of complex shape, including art forms and molds.
Job scanner is a bit like a person's vision surround. As the brain is building three-dimensional image seen as 3D scanner receives information by comparing two images displaced relative to each other. To achieve the required accuracy of a model subject to additional technological methods in the form of laser illumination or intermittent flashes.
Under the cut description and test drive Creaform HandyScan 700 and a little bit about the other 2 scanner and an eye about Surphaser. As well as examples of using the scanner in the oil and aerospace industries, medicine, and reverse engineering.
