K9 Helm, maker of cranial protection for canines in rescue operations, needed CAD models to 3D print working samples for testing and development and ultimately manufacturing. They reached out to Laser Design for 3D scanning services to reverse engineer their prototype models into high-quality, highly accurate CAD models.
We’ve all faced it: You’ve heard about a high tech, well-known product on the market that could dramatically improve your workflow.
But it’s a complex device – like a 3D scanner. What are the key aspects that you should be considering? How do you make the right decision?

A bustling Midwestern hospital needed to make design changes to their 2-story boiler room. Having a visual representation in 3D would allow the hospital to make the necessary design changes to accommodate the new boiler. There were 2 floors to the boiler room as well as a pump area at the hospital needing to be scanned.
Pacific Eagle came to the Laser Design team to 3D laser scan 4 rental unit buildings and create a 3D Revit model so they could make their design changes virtually before starting construction on the new project to create condo units.
How Lasers Can Reduce the Cost of Quality- Precise scanning and measurement via simplified processes can help reduce costs and time-to-market. See IEN magazines full story…
The printing of 3D metal parts is incredibly difficult. For example the slightest impurity in powered metal can be scanned and used, hit with a laser and popped creating a void inside that material that the next layer can easily cover up. If that void becomes denser and/or is in areas of high stress, the part can break and not support the intended weight. This is not yet a consistent or repeatable process yet and the only way to eliminate errors is with computer topography. More importantly, CT is able to do this without destroying the part being printed.
CyberOptics Corp. shares have tripled in value this year, performing better for investors than any other Minnesota-based company, and one of the reasons is a new device that makes very fast, very accurate 3-D scans of physical objects.
Article first appeared on SME’s Advanced Manufacturing The question of how users can compare accuracy of one device to the next remains challenging Aircraft manufacturers are finding noncontact metrology ever more useful. Its inherent high throughput and decreasing cost is complementing the industry’s ramp-up to meet the world’s appetite for more airplanes. However, throughput needs to be balanced with accuracy in finding the right applications as noncontact embraces a variety of devices. “Noncontact metrology is either laser or optical based,”

In this interview, Martin Schuster of Laser Design, Inc. talks about how replacing traditional QA systems with 3D scanning can streamline processes and reduce time-to-market.
A research team on the East Coast needed high resolution information and texture detail of a lobster – a live lobster! In order to provide the critical detail needed the Laser Design 3D engineer used the Artec Space Spider.
The new XLP Laser Probe is able to scan diverse surface materials without any special coatings, up to 50% more accurate, up to 70% faster scan rate, and up to 30% higher resolution in comparison to our previous generation of laser probes.
Shattuck St. Mary’s boarding school was in need of revamping their outdated construction documents into CAD format and turned to Laser Design for 3D terrestrial scanning.

There are over 900 ligaments in the human body, each serving to support and connect hundreds of bones. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most important ligaments connecting the tibia to the femur. An orthopedic surgeon set out to improve the success rate of ACL reconstruction by modifying the standard surgical technique using a 3D scanned & printed metal surgical tool.
