3D DIGITIZATION - CONVERT 3D SCAN INTO CAD DATA
Create tools with high precision.
Generate optimal CAD data from the model with 3D Scan.
CAD DATA FROM THE WORKPIECE THROUGH 3D DIGITIZATION
3D scanning of the workpiece
The first step in 3D digitization is the 3D scanning of your workpiece. The professional and inexpensive digitization of workpieces is now possible for everyone with little effort and a 3D scanner. You create your 3D scan data on site and benefit from very fast running times, low costs and easy communication.
Of course, we can also provide you with a 3D scan of your parts.
The processing of the 3D scan data in CAD data
The second step in the 3D diditalization is the conversion of the point cloud generated in the 3D scan into CAD / CAM capable data. The preparation of your scanned STL data requires years of experience from professional engineers in the reconstruction in CAD. In 3D digitization, the specialist engineer recognizes the logic of the workpiece based on the scan points and replaces these points with CAD-capable surfaces. We process the scanned data record with this reverse engineering to match your desired CAD software.
Based on the scan data we construct a CAD / CAM capable solid model. You can choose between a parametrically constructed design, a surface reconstruction in a STEP / IGES model or a combination of both.
Parametric regular geometries and free-form constructed surfaces are created natively in Solidworks, Catia or CREO. For STEP or IGES models we use SiemensNX or DesignX (Geomagic) - further sample data can be found in the download link below.
Tolerances of 3 - 5 /100 mm are possible with recent scanning systems. The manual and logical reverse-engineering of scan data guarantees that deviations out of the scan file are removed in the new dataset. A 90° scaned angle will manually be replaced with a 90° solid angel. Any automated software process would completely copy all tolerances out of the scan instaed of providing you with clean surfaces.
Your tool can be created immediately with the finished data.
