What are 3D scanners? Simply put, 3D scanners are devices that are used to take real-world, tangible objects and transfer their geometry into computer data. They provide an alternative measurement method to options such as hand measurements that are slow and unreliable or using a CMM (coordinate-measuring machine) which are slow and require you to move your part to a lab and place it in a special fixture. Our 3D scanners don’t require any hard setup of the part nor […]
