If you require a fast, reliable 3D scanning service, Rubix Design offers the complete package. With the ability to conduct onsite 3D scanning, powerful software to perform post scan processing and over a decade’s experience in 3D modelling and engineering fabrication - we can expedite your design, modification or reverse engineering project.
What is 3D Scanning?
3D scanning is a process which uses lasers and cameras to read colour and texture in order to map the surface of an object and create a digital 3D model of it. This is useful anywhere measurement for the reproduction or archiving of a physical object is required.
What can be 3D scanned?
Any object up to 130 metres can be scanned by us, so long as there is sufficient space to be able to scan around it. Dark or reflective objects can be hard to scan however we have developed methods of masking to be able to capture these too.
Who is 3D scanning useful to?
3D scanning has found wide use in mining, architecture, reverse engineering, fabrication, product design and industries where component wear needs to be documented accurately. Basically anywhere where complicated shapes or precise measurement is required, 3D scanning can provide accuracy and reduce lead time on the production process by taking the guesswork and chance of error out of the equation.
What type of 3D scanning do we offer?
Rubix Design has both terrestrial scanners for large items, structures or areas of up to 130m and hand held scanners for greater accuracy on individual components. If you are confident of your scanning abilities our scanners are available for hire. If you prefer however to leave the job in our capable hands, we are available to visit your location and take the guesswork out of the operation.
What is Involved in the Overall Process?
The initial step is to assess the scope of the job. By sending us photos, diagrams and a description of the job, we can quote on what we estimate the job to cost. We can provide only the STL files from the scan or fully process the scans to take the data from a point cloud, to a 3D model and even detailed drawings for manufacture. The size, intricacy of the objects being scanned and level of processing requested are all factors which go into assessing the scope of a job. We are happy to provide advice and a free assessment of your job, no matter the size.
Why Use Rubix Design?
Having previously worked in the engineering and fabrication industry, we know what information and output fabricators and boilermakers require to be able to work from. This insight sets us apart from others as we know the whole process - not just scanning. So the details we look for while scanning and modelling are what the person performing the hands on work needs to know.
