Results: Obtained precise measurement of small metal items that could not be scanned with Artec
Reverse engineering is the process of obtaining data from existing components for total recreation or design of a different components. This type of engineering
DAVID SLS 3D scanner was determined as an ideal option for the reverse engineering process due to its affordability, easy set up and precise data retrieval. Small metal items, 1 meters by meter in size, were scanned by projector Acer K132+ for data retrieval such as surface detail and even texture.
"I use DAVID Scanner 2-3 times a week. It is inexpensive, scans quickly and precision is good as needed."
Precise data of the small metal components were successfully measured with the DAVID VISION software. The data was highly valuable due to the low cost of DAVID SLS2 3D Scanner. In the past the New Jersey based company had used Artec for scanning but was unable to deliver desired results because it could not not read certain metal parts. Artec was also an investment costing approximately $18,000 which is six times more costly than DAVID SLS2 3D Scanner.
