Structured light or white light scanners project fringe-patterns which are distorted by the surface being scanned and a camera photographs the distorted images and through the process of triangulation a 3D point cloud of data is collected. These systems are extremely fast, accurate and the results are highly repeatable.
The 8tree surface inspection system applies structured light scanning to the inspection of surfaces for dents or bumps, the conditions of set rivets in panels or the flushness or gap in panels. Primarily used by maintenance and repair organisations (MROs) in the aircraft industry but other newer uses for the technology in the inspection of damage in pipelines in the field are also being realised.
Scan In A Box is an entry-level structured light scanning system for hobbyists, educational institutions and general industry where fast, low cost 3D scanning is required as a precursor to 3D printing, modelling or deign exercises.
3D laser line scanners are line scanners which scan the surface of an object as the laser is run across the surface collecting thousands of 3D data points per second of the height and position of topography. These systems are fast, accurate and usually mounted to a portable measuring arm CMM so that reference points and relative positions can be automatically computed by the system.
Hand-held, video-based scanning system that quickly captures 3D scan data of the surface conditions of small to medium-sized objects quickly and efficiently. Can be used to scan people as it does not use laser light for the scanning process.
