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.
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. 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 and structures and hand held scanners for greater accuracy on individual components. If you are confident of your scanning abilities our scanners are available for hire, otherwise 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, sending us photos, diagrams and a description can greatly assist. After scanning we can provide just the STL files from the scan or fully process them and take the data from a point cloud, to a 3D model. We are happy to provide advice and a free assessment of your job, no matter the size.
Why Use Rubix Design?
Our prior experience in the engineering and fabrication industry, means we know what information and output fabricators and boilermakers require to work from. This insight sets us apart from others as we know the whole process - not just scanning.
