I recently purchased a cross-over toolbox for my small truck. I was very careful to check with the vendors to make sure that the toolbox would fit into my year/make/model of truck and that I was getting the best price. Well, my toolbox arrived and guess what? It does not fit properly in the bed of my truck. I made the foolish mistake of not getting the critical measurement from my truck bed and comparing them to the manufacturer’s specifications […]
Due to the inevitable changing of environmental conditions, it is important to be able to optimize data acquisition by running a quick scanning calibration. It is not necessary to do before every scan, but calibration should be done on a regular basis and when the scanner is exposed to an obviously different environment than the last time it was calibrated. The GO!SCAN system is supplied with a calibrated and serialized reference artifact, also known as a calibration plate. This is […]
Let’s take a look at 3D Color Scan and prepare it for 3D Printing.
Creaform 3D Scanning: Preparing a Color scan for 3D Printing (Video Part 1) Let’s take a look at 3D Color Scan and prepare it for 3D Printing.
Creaform 3D scanning: The GO!SCAN 50 The GO!SCAN 50 is Creaform’s most versatile hand-held portable 3D scanner. With hybrid positioning, professional grade measurements, and full color scanning, the GO!SCAN 50 can do it all while still bringing the easiest to use white light 3D scanning experience to users. The scanner itself weighs only 2.2 pounds and is small enough to fit into carry-on luggage. Besides the scanner, all you need is a PC or laptop for the whole scanning process. […]

Accuracy of Stratasys FDM vs. Hobbiest FDM Machines What is the actual difference between Stratasys FDM machines and hobbiest FDM Printers? There are so many FDM machines out there on the market today that utilize FDM technology and it can be hard to distinguish between them. Parts off one machine can look just as good as parts off a different one. But one of the main things to take into consideration is Reliability and Repeatability. If you are […]
