3D Scanning FAQ's
Not sure if 3D scanning can help you?Not sure if you object is right for 3D scanning?
We’ve got some common FAQ’s that might help you decide.
As we’ve said, we use structured light 3D scanning here at Surface Scan but it does come with a few limitations. Don’t worry though, we have ways of getting over most issues.
Maybe you already have the 3D scan data and need another service? Or why not check out our 3D scan near me page.
Here is a more detailed explanation on what is structured light scanning.
Lets say you wraped an object in clingfilm and it took the form of that shape and every tiny detail. You then remove the object without altering the clingfilm, your left with the exterior shape of your object, a mesh or point cloud. This data can then be used for various purposes.
Most files we send are in the format of an STL or an OBJ.
If we’ve reversed engineered your data it will normally be sent as either a STEP or IGES file.
generally we’ll send your data of secure servers or portable storage devices, whicever works best for you.
Absolutly, we offer a complete mobile service.
Yes, not a problem. Just bear in mind the postage costs and how big yor object is.
Scanning shiny or dark objects can be tricky for most 3D scanners. The way around this, is to spray the object with a non-reflective spray. Don’t worry though, it comes off.
We use 3D scanners that scan using structured light. It basically projects a pattern onto the surface of the object and cameras data.
Have you handmade a prototype? Do you need to reverse an old mould? You want to create custom car parts? The list goes on, buy if you a problem and you need a solution, we’re here to help.
