MOBILE 3D SURFACE SCANNING

1st STEP - 3D SCANNING:

The deliverable will be a meshed .stl file. This can, in some circumstances be left on the day but some complex meshes need cleaning up before delivery. This will be done off site. There are other mesh formats available if required.

PDS will provide a Solid Model Viewer / Software also for the customer to view and manipulate scanned models.

Tolerances approx 0.3mm / metre accuracy & up to 0.5mm resolution over 4 m/3.

The need to apply targets and sometimes powder to parts for cleaner scans. No damage to parts at all.

2nd STEP – POST PROCESSING / CONVERTING SCAN DATA (.stl mesh) INTO SOLID BODY / SURFACES CAD FORMAT (i.e. .step / iges etc):

This requires the scanned .stl mesh file to be translated / remodeled in a native CAD package (Solidworks Premium) to turn it into typical CAD i.e. step, iges, sat formats for drawings, moulds, production etc.

This is an additional service to the above. It will not be done on site on the day. TBC

These areas need discussing based on what the final requirement is. TBC
