Producing parts that reference real-world objects can be an essential element to technical workflows, from precision engineering to art. 3D scanning is a key piece of this equation, and alongside 3D printing creates a powerful digital workflow that can simplify and sophisticate processes in a range of industries.
This white paper provides a detailed look into how to start using 3D scanning to improve part design and production and how, paired with 3D printing, scanning technology workflows can be effectively applied to replication and restoration, reverse engineering, and metrology.
