Why 3D Scanning?
3D scanning is the process of using captured data to generate a 3D model. The technique can be used for the following purposes:
- To archive or reproduce moulds, fixtures and tooling.
- To document and preserve hand-built designs.
- To reverse-engineer a part that has no drawings.
- For re-creating a part using new methods such as 3D printing.
- For inspection of parts for accurate manufacturing.
- For Obtaining models for FEA and CFD simulation.
- To capture its existing shape to analyze it for flaws or defects.
- To reduce the cost of manufacturing and time for designing.
What is 3D Scanning & How it Works?
There are multiple types of 3D Scanning techniques like 3D laser scanning, Stereo Vision and Photogrammetry Scanning. These methods can be used to create a digital model from the physical object, capturing the accurate shape and size of the physical object in less time. At CAD Deziners, we use appropriate software to scan and convert scanned data into CAD files. The steps of the procedure are as follows:
Step-1: The procedure starts with spray coating the object with a temporary matte powder to improve scan accuracy. Even if the surface is slightly glossy, it can degrade the scan quality. Similarly, reflective and transparent surfaces cannot be scanned at all without a matte coating.
Step-2: Following the coating step, we capture the important sections of the part using a high-precision 3D scanner. Our experts capture every viewing angle carefully so every scan automatically aligns as the 3-dimensional models unravel.
Step-3: Once the part is scanned, we use the best software to repair small gaps and simplify the scan making the data more manageable in CAD. This is done to reduce the model as much as possible without destroying important details.
Step-4: The data is then imported into CAD software equipped with reverse engineering tools, where it undergoes trimming, fusion, alignment, and polishing.
Step-5: Once the data has gone through all the aforementioned steps and converted into a refined design, it is ready to print.
What Does Our Service Include?
- Scanning and redesigning – As a crucial aspect of reverse engineering, our experts thoroughly scan your components using several techniques like CAM, CAD, 3D, and CAE. They then assist you in acknowledging how minor changes could be made to advance and enhance the engineering process.
- Scanning onsite projects – We have a wide range of 3D scanners which are used for point cloud and in the 3-dimensional digitisation process to be used onsite. We provide different types of scanners, including laser handheld 3D scanners with an accuracy range of .05 mm up to 0.1 mm. We also have scanners that employ white and blue lights and have an accuracy range of up to 0.01 to 0.03 mm. You can also get our laser 3-dimensional scanner with an accuracy range of around 0.5 up to 1 mm.
- Scanning and prototyping – Using the reverse engineering process, our professionals provide effective 3D scanning to aid you in properly designing the prototype at a relatively low cost.
- Converting STL to STEP formats for reverse engineering – Using the best software, we convert a 3D scan (STL) into a CAD format (STEP). The process is known as reverse engineering, and we’re the masters of it. Reconstructing a solid model based on a 3D scan is not an automatic process but a manual reconstruction. However, we have the expertise and equipment to deliver the best results.
3D Scanning and reverse engineering
The process of reverse engineering can be simply explained as creating a digital twin based on a physical component or assembly. The method has an array of uses in design, engineering, and manufacturing applications, some of which are mentioned below:
- To re-create manufacturing data for an obsolete part;
- For precise analysis of competitor products.
- For digital archiving;
- To perform simulations and calculations.
- When you send us your object, we perform a thorough 3D scan of it using our 5-step scanning process to ensure maximum precision.
- The scanned data is then processed and defined to create a final design.
- Using the final design, we create working 3D models and manufacturing drawings.
We have a highly skilled team that is equipped with state-of-the-art optical sensors in-house to deliver precise models and drawings. No matter what your requirements are, we have a scanner suitable to them.
Deliverable File Formats
We render any received raw data or scan data collected from your physical part into a 3D model before exporting it in the file format of your choice. We can also create manufacturing and assembly drawings.
Some of the CAD native file formats we commonly use are as follows:
- Geomagic Design X
- Creo Parametric
Following are some 3D model transfer formats we often use:
- AutoCAD DXF
MAINTENANCE, REPAIR & RECREATE OEM PARTS
Since 3D scanning can capture the digital representation of physical objects in three dimensions, it can be a very useful method for maintenance, repair, and recreation of OEM parts. Following are some of the applications of 3D scanning in these areas:
In maintenance, 3D scanning can be used for precisely capturing the geometry of parts and equipment, which can be used for various purposes, such as:
Digital twins are virtual replicas of a physical object or system which can be used to monitor the performance of the physical object, simulate its behaviour, and predict potential issues.
Using 3D scanning, you can perform quality control checks on parts to ensure they meet certain tolerances and dimensions. Many manufacturers use 3D scanning to accelerate their quality control processes since 3D scanners enable non-contact, highly precise 3D profile measurements.
If the maintenance requires a part that is no longer available or has been discontinued, 3D scanning can be used to reverse engineer it and create a replacement.
Although 3D scanners can’t fix repair parts and machinery by themselves, they can work wonders for making repair an easier deal. 3D scanning can be really beneficial for the following aspects of repair:
You can scan damaged parts to detect the extent of the damage for planning the repairs accordingly.
If a certain part gets damaged beyond repair, 3D scanning can be used to create a replacement part, which you can fabricate using additive manufacturing techniques.
Once you’re done with the repair process, you can use 3D scanning to verify that the part has been restored to its original specifications.
3. Recreating OEM Parts
Manufacturers often have to deal with situations where they require discontinued, obsolete, or extremely expensive OEM parts. In such cases, 3D scanning can be used to recreate the parts through the following process:
A 3D scan is taken of the original part, capturing its geometry and dimensions.
The 3D scan is used to create a digital model of the part, which can be used to generate a CAD model.
The CAD model can be used to fabricate a replica of the original part using additive manufacturing techniques like 3D printing.
Industries we serve
- Aerospace companies now employ 3D laser scanning for a vast range of operations, including inspection, measurement, and modeling.
- No matter how complex the part is or where it is located, 3D scanning can be used for everything from designing jet engine components and airframe parts to modeling aircraft bodies and cockpit areas.
