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.

Design of an Engine Bay to Fit a Diesel Engine into a Gas-Powered Snowmobile

Integrating an industrial diesel engine into a gas-powered snowmobile chassis in order to reduce noise and eliminate emissions while maintaining or boosting speed and performance cannot be done properly without measuring extremely complex geometries with state-of-the-art technologies to get an accurate foundation and use the correct tolerances.

Design and Development of High-Performance Street and Offroad Sport Motorcycles

Designing high-performance motorcycles cannot be done without measuring the ergonomics and aerodynamics with state-of-the-art technologies, ultimately providing riders with a thrilling experience.

Building and Testing High-Performance Street and Offroad Sport Motorcycles

Building high-performance motorcycles requires race-proven parts controlled by state-of-the-art technologies that enable riders to enjoy a thrilling experience.

Inspection for Machining Better Castings and Forgings

Producing parts involves machining raw castings and forgings. Specifically, the surfaces with important mechanical functions require machining. To optimize machining and ensure better quality, these critical areas must have enough material; otherwise, mechanical contacts might be defective, and tolerances might not be met.

Design and Manufacturing of a Steering Wheel for a Formula SAE Car

Formula SAE is a student competition in which university students from around the world design, manufacture, and test third-scale, Formula 1-style vehicles. These FSAE teams are not only judged on the dynamic performance of their vehicle, but also the engineering sophistication and innovation their racing cars exhibit.

How can Automotive Part Manufacturers Improve Productivity, Perform More Inspections Faster and with More Information

In the automotive industry, parts that comprise a complete car body are made by sheet metal stamping. These parts, which are all manufactured separately and punched in several stages, are welded together to form the final assembly. How can manufacturers make sure that automotive parts that are produced separately will fit together to form the final car body?
