3D Scanning of parts

Medir has a measuring room in which your objects are scanned with high accuracy.

Due to the large stock of 3D scanners, Medir is able to digitize every object with high accuracy.
Examples of applications of a 3D scan are:

  • Quality control of parts
  • Digitizing art
  • Reverse engineering of parts

Accuracy: up to +/- 0.05mm

File formats

The result of a 3D scan can be delivered in different file formats. Depending on your wishes, the 3D scan is delivered as a point cloud (suitable for 3D printing, for example) or as a CAD file for further processing.

Examples of file formats are:

  • .STL / .OBJ (MESH file)
  • .STP (STEP file – 3D CAD file)
  • .IGS (IGES file – 3D CAD file)
  • .DXF / .DWG (2D / 3D drawing)

Quality control

A 3D scan is used, among other things, to check the geometry of a product in relation to the specification. Graphically, it can be shown where the differences lie.

Examples of quality control for which Medir International has performed a 3D scan are:

  • Checking a newly delivered camshaft, where the customer wondered if it was equal to the old camshaft
  • Comparing a steel part of a tillage machine against the drawing

Reverse engineering

After a 3D scan, it is possible to reverse engineer the scanned object. A physical object is scanned and the data is processed into a 3D CAD model.

Examples of reverse engineering projects that Medir International has carried out are:

  • Scanning and manufacturing a CAD model of a piston of which no drawing is available
  • Scanning and manufacturing a CAD model of a screw

Digitizing art

Within the art world, more and more use is being made of 3D scanning. Examples of 3D scans within the art world are:

  • Digitalizing art for archiving
  • Reparation of damaged artworks
  • Reproduction of images whose mold has been lost
