1 A Perspective on 3D Scanning and Digital Modeling Michael Raphael President & Chief Engineer

2 Introductory Hypothesis Your personal understanding of 3D scanning is based on the perspective of what you have seen, and it is difficult to extend that perspective without more knowledge and experience. “The years teach much which the days never know.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

3 Review: Geomagic Convergence 2007 Our Big Problems: Many Diverse Applications Process Inconsistency Confusion with Deliverable Options Variety of Workflows Lots of Tools Factors that effect choice of Scanning & Modeling solution: Industry Scale Accuracy Resolution Speed Cost Portability Purpose Recurrence Technical Level

4 Scale of 3D Scanning Technology

5 Types of 3D Scanning Technology  Optical Trackers  Portable CMM Arms  White Light Scanners  Confocal  Touch Digitizer Scanners  CMM-based Laser Line Scanners  Dental Scanners  Body Scanners  Industrial CT  Micro CT  Cone Beam CT  Spherical Scanners  Millimeter wave  Polarization  Image Correlation
