Picture an assembly line not that isn’t made up of robotic arms spewing sparks to weld heavy steel, but a warehouse of plastic-spraying printers producing light, cheap and highly efficient automobiles.
We always knew that the Creaform products were versatile, but sometimes their application surprise and amaze even us!
The University of Michigan owns a Handyscan 3D, which is made available to its research staff for various projects. In their own words, “this method of scanning is perfect for not only capturing an object’s basic form but also the details of its surface, since the laser is often of very high accuracy”.
We’ve all been there. Your manager or customer has been looking at 3D images of your latest product design for months on your computer. But when the first prototype is put on the table in front of them, they say something like “Are you sure that’s the right size, because it looked smaller on the computer screen.” And since you’re on the verge of releasing the design to tooling, you mentally scramble to figure out a way to avoid redoing several weeks worth of work.
