Scantech Collaborates with Counting Cars to 3D Scan Cars for Automotive Modification

Oct 25, 2022

Scantech has recently cooperated with Counting Cars, an American reality television series for automotive restoration and modification, to 3D scan cars and help to create 3D printed and customized parts.

Scantech offered its high-precision and easy-to-use composite 3D scanner KSCAN-Magic to facilitate automotive modification thanks to its cutting-edge 3D scanning technology.

The cooperation was initiated by Scantech’s reseller RapidScan 3D, who provided the 3D scanner for workers from Counting Cars and trained them with technical know-how. Their professional training and helpful guidance help them to navigate the journey of 3D scanning with ease.

Counting Cars, shown in History and filmed in Las Vegas, is one of the most popular reality television series for the modification of automobiles and motorcycles. It chronicles the daily activities at Count’s Kustoms, an automobile restoration, and customization company.

Horny Mike from Counting Cars used KSCAN-Magic to 3D scan the grille of a Corvette car and obtained a 3D model of it. He then used the 3D data to create a customized headlight for it.

In the following video of live streaming, Horny Mike showed us how he used a 3D scanner KSCAN-Magic to 3D scan a Corvette grille to create new 3D printed grilles with beautiful headlights.

He first stuck targets on the grille for later positioning. With one click, the 3D scanner was up and ready for use. It captured targets very easily and it allowed him to scan from any spot without worrying about any type of scanning sequences.

After 3D scanning, he got all the measurements and designed every part of it on the computer. At last, he took it over to the 3D printer and printed out the grille.

KSCAN-Magic series of 3D laser scanners is the first that incorporates infrared and blue lasers into one single instrument.

It offers five standard working modes:

  • large-area scanning (globally initiative infrared laser),
  • Ultra-fast scanning (blue laser crosses),
  • Hyper-fine scanning (blue parallel laser),
  • Deep-hole scanning (single blue laser),
  • And built-in photogrammetry system.

With two sets of high-definition industrial cameras, it can conduct 3D scanning meticulously.

These portable 3D laser scanners have a revolutionary breakthrough in performance. Its unparalleled scanning speed, accuracy, scanning area, and depth of field greatly optimize the 3D measurement workflows and accelerate the product time-to-market.

To obtain data on hard-to-reach or complex surfaces, the KSCAN-Magic series can be paired with a portable CMM T-Probe, offering a comprehensive 3D digital solution for precision measurement.

There are many ways Scantech 3D technology can be used in the automotive industry. Explore the following videos to get insights and inspiration.

3D scanning for GTR rear wing customization

Our engineer uses KSCAN-Magic to obtain 3D data of GTR. Using the data obtained, we virtually assemble a rear wing to enable higher downward force and more stable driving at high speeds. The Nissan GT-R is a 2-door 2+2 high-performance vehicle produced by Nissan and unveiled in 2007.

3D scanning subway

Our engineer in this video conducts a full-field 3D scanning of a subway carriage and its chassis using a handheld 3D scanner KSCAN-Magic. He obtains high-precision data on this large-scale carriage quickly and effectively.

KSCAN-Magic for automotive applications

KSCAN-Magic suits well for automotive applications in terms of dimension measurement and GD&T inspection including gap and flush inspection.

Its ultra-fast and hyper-fine scanning modes can cater to various finishes and materials ranging from car grilles with complex details, chairs with soft and curved surfaces, car doors with various holes and slots, and more.
