3D Scanning – Over 30 Years and 25,000 Successful Projects Completed!

3D scanning, the process of converting physical objects into precise digital models, enables you to quickly and accurately capture your object’s shape and geometries. This process supplies you with a complete digital representation of your part to be used for reverse engineering, quality inspection or at any point of a typical manufacturing cycle. 3D laser scanning technology can provide you with:

  • Fast, ultra-accurate results, reducing your time to market (saving you time and money!)
  • Complete measurement data of the entire surface of your object, verifying that the as-built part matches your CAD model
  • True CAD models for FEA testing of actual geometry to correct problems before parts go into production
  • CAD models to validate tooling, even when no current models exist
  • Profile data of the whole part so assemblies can be digitally put together, revealing inaccuracies and interferences

With 30 years of successful 3D scanning projects, Laser Design can scan anything from tiny components to vehicles and even entire buildings. We have locations around the globe and provide customers with unmatched technology and expertise.

  • AutoCAD
  • SolidWorks
  • Pro/E
  • UG
  • Autodesk Inventor
  • Rhino
  • Revit
  • And others

Whether comparing a physical part to its CAD model or digitizing a prototype with the intent of developing a new CAD model, 3D scanning yields high accuracy point cloud data that can be modeled and used for:

  • Tool path creation
  • Polygonal / STL meshes
  • Composite blends
  • NURBS curves
  • NURBS surfaces
  • Tooling verification
  • And many more
