Event description

Description

Many Iowa manufacturers will sink or swim in the coming years based on whether they’re ready for the approaching wave of digital advancements. Major innovation is ahead, but it’s going to require that you have digital plans for your products. If you don’t, 3D scanning can be used to create a good digital model of what you’re trying to make while saving you time and money.

This two-hour event will show you:

  • The basics of 3D scanning and applications.
  • What types of equipment are available and their capabilities and limitations.
  • The benefits of scanning in terms of speed, accuracy, and cost.
  • Case studies using CIRAS' 3D scanner to assist Iowa manufacturers

Agenda Topics:

  • Basic overview of what laser scanning is and how it works
  • ISU Equipment and some alternatives on the market
  • Limitations on size and accuracy of our equipment
  • Finish/color considerations
  • Part geometry and line of sight
  • Cleaning up the scan
  • Removing noise and meshing scan data into point cloud
  • Using the point cloud as template for creating 3D CAD (point cloud is not CAD by itself)
  • Using the point cloud to overlay existing CAD to show deviations for quality check
  • Benefits of cost and time savings using scanning technology
  • Future trends of 3D scanning
