The CAD Workshop, a Dassault Systemes training company, needed to obtain CAD data of an aircraft lightbulb unit, which consists of an assembly of 9 separate parts. Before creating a CATIA assembly model, 3DScanCo’s – a division of Laser Design Inc. – challenge was in correctly orienting and aligning the 9 sets of scan data to create an accurate representation of the entire lightbulb unit.
I have been well pleased with outcomes from 3DScanCo. Very professional and extremely knowledgeable of model creation from scanned point cloud data.”
After capturing accurate scan data of each part, 3DScanCo used digital assembly techniques to combine the 9 sets of scan data into one oriented and aligned scan model. From here, each individual piece was modeled to their original design intent and fit into the original alignment, thus creating 1 CATIA V5 assembly file that contained all 9 part models.
The CAD Workshop ended up with a complete CATIA CATProduct file that contained accurate CAD data of the aircraft lightbulb unit. They can now use this data for training purposes and can assemble and disassemble the entire lightbulb assembly digitally.
