What is 3D Scanning?
3D scanning is a combined term for various processes involved in producing a 3D model . A 3D model is a digital form of a physical object .
Where does 3D scanning come handy?
|Quality Test & Measurement||Reverse Engineering||Rapid Prototyping|
Various types of 3D scanning technology
Contact based 3D Scanning
Non contact based 3D Scanning
- Laser Triangulation: In Laser triangulation, a laser line or a point is projecting onto an object’s surface and then its reflection is captured with a sensor located at a known distance from the laser’s source. The resulting reflection angle can be interpreted to calculate 3D measures of the surface.
- Time of Flight: Time of flight laser scanners emit a pulse of laser light and the time it takes to make its round-trip is computed to find the distance of the point in 3D space. Taken all together, these points create a 3 dimensional point cloud that can be used to reconstruct the object. This method is typically used when scanning long distances, such as the inside of the stadium or the outside of a building.
- Phase Shift: Phase shift laser scanners works similar to that of time of flight scanners except that a standard phase is also emitted with the laser light and the reflection of the same is also compared to refine the the distance detection.
