3D Scanning in 

High-tech 3D scanning technology is extensively used in machinery manufacturing from product design and optimization, FAI, assembly analysis, quality control to simulation.

3D scanners scan and inspect various mechanical parts to satisfy different manufacturing demands. 3D scanning helps manufacturers improve efficiency and take the lead in the highly competitive market.

Explore some common applications


Reverse Engineering

3D scanners can capture high-precision 3D data of objects for reverse engineering of mechanical products. The accuracy of 3D scanners ensure more accurate reverse modeling, which saves development cost and shortens development cycles for machinery manufacturers.

Quality Control

With 3D scanning technology, your quality control technicians will precisely and efficiently locate errors that occurred during manufacturing. 3D laser scanners will realize accurate data capturing while 3D software will compare the 3D model against the original CAD model to determine deviations.


Capture full-field data of parts and generate inspection reports, which is helpful for dimensional inspection of complex objects and curvature surfaces. It can help you to ensure that the goods supplied and manufactured can meet agreed-upon requirements so that no issues arise during the assembly.

Mold Inspection

3D scanning paired with 3D software can provide accurate data for deviation correction by comparing the scanned 3D model with the original CAD. With 3D scanning solutions you can achieve frequent iterations to get your final mold. Do away with the inefficiencies of traditional mold design. 

3D Scant-to-Print

Typically, 3D modeling software is used for creating 3D models for printing. It requires professional 3D modelers to conduct the time-consuming and expensive works. However, with 3D scanning product designers and engineers can scan both small and large objects to create precise and printable 3D models.
