3D scanners are liberating manpower completely, solid wood furniture carving is no longer a problem.

Summary

The handheld 3D scanner of Scantech collects the complex 3D shape data of the furniture efficiently, quickly and accurately, which greatly simplifies the design and transformation process of the furniture carving style, greatly liberates the manpower of the furniture engraving process, and greatly improves the production efficiency of the furniture.

The customer of Scantech: A furniture manufacturer
Scanning object: Solid wood furniture dining chair with carving
Scanning requirement: To obtain the accurate 3d data of the carved patterns and shapes of the furniture to ensure the automatic production can reach the technical level of the old carpenter.
Aim: Solve the problem of high-level carpenter resources scarcity, and the problem of machine engraving Distortion dullness stagnation.

The status of industry

As we all know, the quality of hand-carving of solid wood furniture depends on the carpenter’s carving level, and a skilled old carpenter in the furniture industry is “hard to find” and the cost is extremely high, which greatly increases the process cost of solid wood furniture manufacturers and greatly reduces the production efficiency.
Therefore, many furniture manufacturers now use machine engraving, mainly used for positive mapping of furniture, digital editing of furniture 3D design drawings, and automated production through computer with engraving machine.
However, machine engraving is only suitable for engraving simple regular graphics. For complex, multi-curved graphics engraving, there are inevitably shortcomings of stereotype, simplicity, and poor layering; it is very difficult to design complex engraving, and it is time consuming, also the accuracy and precision can’t be guaranteed.
It can be seen that both manual and machine engraving have advantages, is there a solution that offers the best of both worlds?

Obviously, handheld 3D scanner of Scantech is the best choice to solve this problem! Next, let’s look at how 3D solves the problem of engraving process and liberate the labor to reduce production costs of the furniture manufacturers.

1.The requirement of customer:

The customer is a company that designs and produces all kinds of solid wood furniture. The main requirement is to convert the carving and shape of the previous furniture products into 3D digital models, and assemble or redesign them. It requires an easy-to-use 3D scanning method to highly restore furniture with complex processes.

2.The solution:

Scantech provides customers with a handheld 3D scanner HSCAN331, which is used to scan the furniture to obtain the 3D data, after obtaining 3D data, it is processed and then reversed, the high-precision 3D drawings of the sample can be easily got, then it can be used for redesign or input into the engraving machine to automated manufacturing.

The obtained STL triangle patch data is converted into a surface digital model, and then docked with the customer’s 3D modeling software for subsequent assembly and redesign.

3D scanning inspection working time
It takes 5 minutes to mark points
It takes 15 minutes to shoot pictures
It takes 20 minutes in total

4.Conclusion

The handheld 3D scanner of Scantech captures the complex shape data of the furniture efficiently 、quickly and precisely, greatly simplifying the design and transformation process of the furniture carving style, greatly liberating the manpower of the furniture engraving process, and greatly improving the production efficiency of the furniture.
