From Physical Part to Parametric Model: 3D Scanning Applications in Aerospace

Download this whitepaper and discover how companies across the Aerospace industry are leveraging 3D Scanning to design and manufacture better parts, faster

Optimize your scan to CAD workflows

If you're going to invest in a powerful 3D scanner, then you should be investing in an equally powerful scan to CAD software to maximize its potential. Prior to the digital CAD boom, 3D reverse engineering was carried out using a variety of measurement techniques, whether tape measures, callipers, or even a piece of string!

As technology has improved, so has our ability to measure with improved accuracy. The acceleration of 3D scanning and reverse engineering has catapulted 3D data capture, making it much more efficient, accurate and repeatable.

Combine 3D scanning and reverse engineering to digitize, redesign and rebuild your parts. Regardless of your needs, we have the software to fit. Read on to get a snapshot of what we offer.
