Typical Applications

3D Scanning

Many educational institutions such as Universities, and now even Secondary Schools and Colleges are providing access to students to the latest in 3D technologies such as scanning and 3D printing in order to introduce concepts as additive manufacturing and digital data capture.

Products such as the Scan-In-A-Box system from Italy are providing students and educators with a low entry-cost introduction to 3D digital scanning for either 3D modelling or subsequent 3D printing projects.This type of technology is easy to use, fast to learn and at the same time gives high quality digital scan data output for use in student projects and in some cases for industry collaboration.

Measurement technologies

Many educational institutions such as leading Universities are equipping their engineering facilities with the latest technologies in order to expose students to the latest developments in metrology and measurement technologies with products such as CMMs, laser and white light scanners and 3D data capture systems such as the Alicona InfiniteFocus system.

These technologies once studies and applied will help under-graduates to develop a deep understanding of the latest developments in metrology technology so that when they enter industry after graduation will be immediately able to add value to their chosen employer.
