Cimquest recently added a new 3D scanner to our portfolio. It’s called the Solutionix C500 and it is a structured Blue LED scanner. It’s designed to be user friendly so that both novices and experts can operate it with ease. It comes with the scanner, the stand, and an automated rotary 3-axis turntable. It combines well-written, intuitive software with simple, easy-to-learn calibration, scanning, and post-processing routines. Here are some of the key features . . [...]

Welcome to Part 3 of our Metrology Minute series. In parts one and two of this three-part series, we explained several key components in choosing your company’s first scanner; Field of View (FOV), Accuracy, and Resolution are the first considerations. For a quick review . . . Field-Of-View (FOV) is the volume envelope that your scanner can ‘see’. Ideally, the FOV is large enough to scan your largest parts yet still maintain the accuracy and resolution [...]
Using a Portable Arm for Part Inspection This blog post will introduce you to using a portable, 6-axis arm and powerful metrology software for part inspection. The software that we will be referring to is Verisurf and the 6-axis arm metrology software for part inspection is Master 3D Gage. Read on to learn how these tools are used. The Master 3D Gage is a 4-foot arm capable of measuring from very small to fairly sizeable [...]

Metrology Minute – How do I choose the first scanner for my company? – Part 2 After considering part size and perhaps cost, you’ve narrowed down the field somewhat. The next thing to consider is the application itself. Setting novelty uses aside, the five most common uses for scanning are: Metrology Reverse Engineering 3D Printing Asset creation for a Web Page Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality or video game assets Metrology Reverse Engineering 3D Printing [...]
Let’s take a look at the basics behind Deviation Analysis in Design X. This is an essential tool for reverse engineering and will ensure that you get the most out of your 3D scans. In Geomagic Design X, Deviation Analysis tells us how far off our derived CAD model is from our scan. There are typically three sources of error when scanning a part: There could be a slight error in the actual manufacturing of [...]
