The world of 3D scanning offers many different technologies. From free scanners that run on Smartphones, all the way up to industrial options for high precision metrology, it can be difficult to determine the best 3D scanner solution that will meet your requirements. How do you know what scanning solution is right for you? The first step is to determine the object size of the parts you will be scanning. Scanners generally have a fixed Field of View, meaning they will be able to capture a set volume of data at any given time. Next, consider what you will be [...]

This article will introduce you to the Variscan Pico 3D Scanner from Cimquest. The Variscan Pico is a stationary, light-based scanner, capable of changing light sources from structured white light to red, green or blue light to optimize the acquisition of different colors and textures as well as achieve full-color scanning. A 10-12-minute calibration process is required to ensure excellent accuracy, resolution, and repeatability for virtually any scanning requirement, whether it be for 3D Printing, rev. engineering, metrology applications, or for AR/VR projects. Touting a +/-.0007" accuracy and a resolution with a point spacing of .002" for a single scan, [...]

Cimquest is excited to announce that we are now representing Shining 3D handheld scanners. This new addition to our product lineup offers customers a high-end, handheld scanning solution. There are several different products in this Shining 3D family, but these two give a good example of what the family of products offers and they will be the first ones that Cimquest will have in-house. The Freescan X7 laser scanner provides the accuracy and resolution of competitive handheld scanners but at 60% the cost and virtually identical specifications. The Einscan Pro 2X structured white-light scanners also met the approval of our [...]
Today we will discuss how to analyze various trends of inspection results. The non-contact inspection world is ever growing. More and more companies are using metrology grade scanners to inspect their product. This allows them to utilize the scans and check geometric dimensions and tolerances, extract 3D deviation color maps, and quickly generate full-color 2D and 3D PDFs. But what if you wanted to take this even further and analyze trends based on your inspection results? This is exactly what Geomagic Control X software is able to do. Shown above is a GoPro mount that we designed in-house, and the [...]
