Science and Education

Educational programs that integrate 3D measurement technologies into engineering courses not only demonstrate up-to-date and state-of-the-art expertise, but also offer students the knowledge they need to get the job they are looking for in the industry.

As teachers and researchers, you must show future engineers the fundamentals of engineering based on industry requirements. To do so, you must follow the evolution of technologies and be up to date on the current techniques used in the industry. For students, you are a source of knowledge and a technology expert capable of demonstrating advanced skills.

Nevertheless, the role of professors has one main constraint: lack of time. Between teaching, research, and service requirements, you usually have little time to develop new subjects and integrate them into your classroom curriculum. Thus, how can you stay up to date with the newest technologies and trends, such as laser and white light 3D scanners, in order to capture the attention and interest of your students?

Creaform Solution

With Creaform’s educational 3D scanning tools and teaching kits, students have the opportunity to become familiar with three high-demand areas in the industry: 3D scanning (of course!), quality control, and reverse engineering. In other words, they can use a 3D scanner to take something from the physical world and bring it into the digital world for inspection and modification.

Portable, easy-to-use, high-resolution, and versatile software and industry standard 3D scanners are the solutions to fulfill your goals and overcome your challenges.

  • Portability:

    With dynamic referencing, where both the part and instrument can move freely while measuring, 3D scanning can either occur in the classroom, the laboratory, or the field without affecting performance.
  • Simplicity:

    With plug-and-play devices and user-friendly interfaces, students can easily learn 3D scanning and teachers can quickly become 3D scanning experts.
  • High level of detail:

    With high-resolution cameras for geometry and color cameras for texture, the scan quality enables students to visualize and characterize the finest details of any object.
  • Versatility:

    With advanced laser and optical technologies and limitless scanning volumes, 3D scanners can be used in different projects and measure any part, regardless of size, shape, material, surface finish, and complexity.

3D scanning plays a crucial role in metallurgical plant's

Digging the Most Critical Areas Based on the Performance of Correlated ILI Tools

The economic impact of digging areas in which no critical repairs are needed and omitting areas where potential failures could abruptly occur depends on one factor: the performance of in-line inspection (ILI) techniques. Therefore, it is important to verify the reliability of these ILI tools that use ultrasonic testing (UT) or magnetic flux leakage (MFL) testing to detect and size damages and irregularities in pipelines.

Optimizing Hail Damage Assessment to Reduce the Grounding Time of Damaged Aircraft

Hailstorms are among the most unpredictable and sudden of all weather patterns, capable of causing extensive damage to flying airplanes. In some cases, the fuselage can be partially or entirely damaged, compromising the aircraft’s lift. The grounding of planes is, therefore, mandatory to proceed with assessment and maintenance work.
