3D laser scanning may look like magic, but it also serves many practical purposes. Despite the news reporting frequently on 3D printers, many people still don't understand what 3D laser scanning does.
A non-contact, non-destructive technology, 3D scanning can digitally capture the shape of physical objects using a line of light. After this, it subsequently creates 'point clouds' of data from the surface. In short, it can transform any object into a multi-faceted digital representation. Since our lives have become increasingly digitalised, many people now expect ever more realistic interpretations of real-world objects. With colours and textures also being captured, we can re-create the real world with better accuracy than ever before.
Suitable for a variety of purposes, 3D laser scanning is extremely useful for architectural applications. It is also great for restoration and manufacturing prototypes. Creating a physical prototype that can be used for testing or to manufacture final pieces, it's great for creating a concept model for new consumer products.
