What is the highest level of detail for 3D scanning of automotive chassis parts?
With the rapid development of the automotive industry, the design adjustments for automotive parts becomes more and more frequent. So a fast and efficient way to acquire 3D data is critical to the productivity impact of the automotive industry.
Q: What is the scanning object for this time?
A: Parts in the chassis of the car.
Q: Why do the parts of the car chassis need 3D scanning?
A: Used for product reverse design and size adjustment.
Q: What was the 3d scanning method for parts of automobile chassis in the past?
A: It used to use the camera-type 3D scanner for 3D modeling, but because the camera-type 3D scanner is cumbersome in the process, the parts with high product detail requirements need to be dusted, it’s easy to damage the workpiece during the later cleaning, which brought a lot of trouble to the auto parts manufacturer.
Q: Can handheld 3D scanners solve these problems?
A: Handheld laser 3D scanners on the general market are difficult to reach the level of photogrammetric scanners in detail, so the camera type is difficult to replace in the past. However, the appearance of the PRINCE series handheld 3D scanners completely covers the advantages of the camera type, completely surpassing all the handheld 3D scanners in the surface detail capture capability, so the troubles of the past measurement methods are all solved.
Next, we will see PRINCE’s unparalleled detail capture capabilities in scanning car chassis parts.
Customer: Auto parts manufacturer
Scanning object: Car chassis parts
Scanning device: PRINCE335 Handheld 3D scanner
Aim: Used for product reverse design and dimension adjustment
The design of auto parts is also very important in the automobile manufacturing process， some parts of 3 d data detail requirement is very high， therefore, the general auto parts manufacturer mainly uses the camera-type 3D scanner to carry out 3D reconstruction of parts. But the photo type 3 d scanner must be powder to obtain high precision data, which directly causes the post-cleaning to damage the workpiece easily. At the meanwhile, the camera-type 3D scanner is not portable, and the operation is cumbersome. The scanning takes a lot of time and greatly reduces the production efficiency of customers.
PRINCE series hand-held 3d scanners perfectly meet customer needs in three aspects:
①Achieve 3D data acquisition capability of camera-type 3D scanner
②Do not spray powder on workpiece surface
③The device is less than one kilogram, smart and portable, easy to operate
The appearance of PRINCE 3d scanner has subverted the traditional 3D inspection mode, two working modes of one device can be switched at any time according to requirements. It can detect medium and large workpieces as well as small parts, multiple application scenarios, helping manufacturing companies to save cost, improve efficiency.
After attaching the positioning mark points to the surface of the workpiece quickly, Real-time scanning imaging in the red mode of PRINCE to obtain point cloud data on the surface of the workpiece. For the partial details, the Blue laser mode is used for accurate scanning to achieve ultra high detail. The obtained STL format file is imported into the customer’s professional reverse modeling software to redesign and adjust the manufacturing of automotive parts.
Device & Model: PRINCE335 Handheld 3D scanner
3D inspection process and results
Three-dimensional scanning process of two-color laser
3D point cloud data and stl data
The 3d data obtained by PRINCE 3d scanning can clearly feedback all the details on the workpiece, including the model identification of the workpiece.
3D scanning working time
It takes 1 minute to mark points.
It takes 4 minutes to scan.
It takes 2 minutes to report inspection result.
7 minutes in in total.
The 3D scanning accuracy of PRINCE 335 Blue laser is up to 0.03mm, which can fully meet the scanning requirements of detailed features of various parts. The 3D scanning accuracy of PRINCE 335 Blue laser is up to 0.03mm, which can fully meet the scanning requirements of detailed features of various parts. PRINCE’s fast revert ability of precision objects with highly accurate, no matter the object is large or small, The PRINCE series of red and blue modes can help each other to odes can help, even if the details are smaller than the coin texture, PRINCE can still obtain high-precision 3D data, even if the details are smaller than the coin texture. It is extremely convenient for parts manufacturers to inspect parts of all sizes.
