There are a few things about 3d scanning that are simply amazing. So amazing that every time you hear of its ground breaking advancements you cannot help but smile at its seemingly endless possibilities. The process in which projects are carried out is very fast and enables vital data to be collected into point clouds successfully every time.
It seems this scanning technology has made the news again; it was only a matter of time before mobile scanning devices were created to be fixed to smartphones and iPads. The evolution has gone from bulky, expensive scanning machines to manageable-sized scanners at affordable prices, and some smaller scanners can be easily set up in your study.
Today’s society is consumer based and a spike in the current population has meant a drastic increase in manufacturing services to meet the people’s needs. Older methods of scanning were taking too much time, costing too much money, and taking its toll on businesses. Manufacturers couldn’t get product designs completed and on the market unless they had a chunk of cash or wealthy investors behind the scenes pulling the strings.
This is no longer the case, with so many 3d scanners now available for purchase on the market, from reputable companies and at fantastic prices, small businesses are able to buy this technology and bring it in-house. By having this advantage, many see dramatic increases in sales and a rapid increase in product development.
With talk of iPads soon to be fitted with mobile scanning attachments, it shows the way this technology is heading. It looks as though in the near future, if you own an iPad or smartphone you too will have the technology that will allow the ability to scan whenever and wherever you want to.
It boggles the mind to think what will be achieved as time progresses and technology advances. The future does look bright and 3d scanning technology seems to be playing an integral part of that.
