3D Scanning

3D scanning is a fast and effective way to transform physical objects into accurate digital models.

Absolute 3D offers professional 3D scanning services from our fully equipped Melbourne scanning studio, or we can travel to any Australian address to create high-quality digital models at a time and place that’s convenient for you.

Our top-of-the-range Creaform scanners capture complex freeform components with pinpoint clarity. With exceptional accuracy and resolution, these lightning-fast scanners can capture details finer than a grain of sand. To learn more about our 3D scanners, watch these quick demo videos:

Creaform GoSCAN White Light Scanners
(accuracy 0.1 mm, resolution 0.1 mm – suitable for general 3D colour scanning)

Creaform HandySCAN Laser Scanners
(accuracy 0.03 mm, resolution 0.05mm – ideal for high precision tasks including reverse engineering)

 

 

Scanning is the first step in generating your 3D model. Next, we refine the surfaces if necessary, and output a detailed 3D model in any major mesh format including STL, OBJ, PLY and X3D (with optional texture/colour mapping). Our models are compatible with all leading modelling software including Blender, Modo, Z Brush, Maya, 3DS Max and more.

We can also reverse engineer the scan data and output surface or solid formats such as STEP, IGES and Parasolid for use in all major CAD programs. Alternatively we can provide native SolidWorks files, complete with feature tree. These models match the original design intent and are constructed as if they were engineered from scratch, making them ideal for altering or re-designing parts.

3D scanning can also be performed in conjunction with our design and printing services to create and reproduce objects for a vast array of applications, including:

  • Repair of damaged equipment
  • Replication of existing items
  • Validation of CAD models
  • Performing rapid CAD-to-Part comparisons
  • Highlighting manufacturing defects
  • Artefact archiving and preservation
  • Scaling objects up or down
  • Prototype Development
  • Quality Inspection
  • Game Creation
