“3D Printing Revolutionizes the Hearing Aid Business…”

These are just a few of the headlines hitting news reports about 3d scanning and printing technology. This technology allows people to scan any type of object no matter the size and then print it as a tangible three-dimensional object.

Creative and original attempts are being made to design and create items that are downright weird, bizarre, as well as, life-saving body parts. There are already cases of 3d printed guns, toys, sneakers, human organs including ears, hearts and livers. Take note that none of the above would have been created if 3d scanning wasn’t involved. The two work hand-in-hand throughout the concept-to-life process.

Scanning technology has the ability to capture vital data precisely, of any scene, area, inanimate to animated objects. This data is then collated together in a point cloud, and represented as a rendered formed graphic through specialized software, where it can be manipulated and modified.

New advancements have seen a rapid increase in popularity when it comes to 3d scanning services. Today more and more businesses are taking this technology on and running with it, pushing it to its limits. The benefits are that it is highly accurate, less time consuming, and scans at lightning speed compared to old methods.

The recent reduction in pricing for this service has pushed and promoted this technology among its original users and drawing in new ones at the same time. Scanners have now been scaled down and are more affordable and easy to place within a smaller work area. The usability factor of this technology has become incredibly simple, which allows users to learn quickly, mastering the key operating functions of the scanner/printer in a matter of hours.
