3D Scanning Empowers 3D Visualization
3D visualization is the process of creating 3D models of real-life objects by using 3D software and 3D scanners, which allows physical objects to appear on computers, tablets, and mobile phones.
This technology can be applied to preserve cultural relics and ancient architectures, create characters in computer-animated movies, improve product design processes, and display products online. It can also help create digital presentations of exhibits for virtual museums so that people can explore the charm of ancient culture anywhere and anytime.
Innovative 3D scanning enables software architects, designers, and 3D artists to conduct 3D visualization efficiently. By capturing details at high speeds, 3D scanning empowers users to create high-quality 3D models easily, saving both time and costs.
How to Use a Portable 3D Scanner for 3D Visualization?
Structured-light and laser 3D scanner for easy scanning
Capture 3D Data
Capture the geometry, color, and texture of objects
Generate 3D Files
Support formats include asc, stl, obj, and etc.
Compatible with different 3D design software
The 3D visualization powered by 3D scanning has become one of the most popular options for creating high-quality digital content over the last few decades.
It helps users to overcome challenges posed by complex geometries, and time-consuming traditional measurement methods. With full-field 3D data easily accessed, engineers, designers, doctors, and professionals can deal with daily tasks efficiently.
To different objects
Non-contact 3D scanning allows users to capture 3D data of objects such as medium and large-scale cultural relics, sculptures, cars, and even human being right on the site. The measurement processes are not limited by complex geometries, dark or reflective surfaces, or traditional measurement methods such as measuring tapes and calipers.
Access to 3D Models
It is not always possible for all engineers to work on the same part of a 3D model at the same time since each part belongs to one engineer in a team. Engineers in a group can benefit from 3D scanning by generating a complete 3D model available to all. With precise 3D models, visual artists can experiment and create different versions of ideas more effectively.
The 3D data generated can be output in various formats including asc, stl, obj, etc. With these files, designers and engineers can use mainstream third-party 3D software to modify and improve the original design, 3D print objects or archive precise 3D models for further uses.
Scantech’s 3D scanners are widely applied in the healthcare and medical industries. By precise and fast 3D scanning, professionals can obtain 3D data of patients for creating custom-fit and ergonomic prosthetic devices, orthotic solutions, cervical braces, and more.
Cultural Relics and Archaeology
Our 3D scanning performs well in capturing geometries and textures of cultural relics and objects in archaeology sites, including sculptures, clay pottery, and fossils. It helps to create digital replicas of real-life objects, giving researchers and designers the power to restore, exhibit, and digitally store them.
Art and Design
Our robust 3D scanners make it easy for designers and artists to capture accurate data for VR, CGI, meta-universe, product design, etc. Thanks to their quick preparation, easy operation, and intuitive guide, both our structured-light and laser 3D scanners are ideal for creating digital artwork, sculpture and more.
3D digitization enables users to reconstruct objects for online display on PC, and mobile devices. These 3D models can be used as marketing materials for AR/VR shopping and help to sell products or promote projects before they are launched. The virtual display allows virtual museums to archive and present 3D cultural artifacts with the high level of details.
Scientific Research and Education
3D scanning provides powerful technical support for university training and institutes research projects. Using Scantech’s 3D scanners and 3D software, students, educators, researchers explore extinct animal species and historical artifacts, be it in the classroom or on the field.
Scantech’s color and laser 3D scanners suit well for 3D scanning artifacts, human bodies, and sculptures. With sophisticated algorithm, it is efficient to capture 3D data of objects that come in different geometries, color, and textures. Users can scan objects such as cultural artifacts, sculptures, and portraits.
Thanks to their versatility, these 3D scanners enable smooth 3D scanning to cater to different needs and accelerate 3D visualization. Engineers can capture millimeter-precise details ready for use and designers don’t need to start from scratch when developing new products.
