Considerations for 3D scanning
The size, material, finish and detail of the object, as well as the surroundings and environment, must be taken into consideration when planning the 3D measurement of your item and our team of experienced engineers will discuss this with you in detail upon enquiry. As well as our mobile 3D scanning equipment, we have an automated 3D scanning facility, housed within an environmentally controlled measurement cell based at our site in Surrey. Within this cell we can manage both ambient light and temperature to ensure that the highest level of accuracy is achieved. Objects with shiny surfaces can be notoriously hard to capture. Our GOM metrology systems use narrow band blue light and reflection detection which helps to reduce the effects of ambient light. Where required, we will also complete surface prep which is aerospace approved.
