With the cost of 3D scanners decreasing through products like Artec 3D , accuracy of machines increasing and the number of folks interested in the 3D scanning technology increasing it’s no surprise that the number of 3D scanners in the marketplace has doubled and continues to grow.
For a number of 3D scanner owners obtaining a 3D scanner doesn’t solve all your 3D needs. We hear from owners all the time how difficult it is to process the point cloud data from a 3D scanner into a workable 3D CAD format. The ratio between time spent scanning vs. modeling is about 1 to 5 and higher for more complex projects and unfortunately many 3D scanner owners find the scanning portion to be the most fun!
For those 3D scanner owners or wanna-be owners we feel your pain and offer CAD modeling services for all size of projects, any type of scanner and almost all formats you need- so you can get back to the fun part– 3D scanning!
What do you feel the ratio is between scanning and post processing of raw data?
Do you plan or already purchased a 3D scanner?
