3D Scanning for Rapid Prototyping of Consumer Products

What the Industry Needs

Rapid prototyping is a great way of validating the functionality, dimensions and assembly features of a design without going through the usual prototyping process that requires specific tools, experienced technicians and is time consuming. A 3D scanning solution can be really valuable to feed the rapid prototyping process, especially when freeform shapes are involved. With a 3D scanner, it is possible to quickly acquire the dimensions of a model in order to efficiently produce a prototype. Also, modifications performed on the first prototypes can be easily integrated in the design in order to create the subsequent prototypes.

Advantages of the HandySCAN 3D Solution

Rapid prototyping calls for the acquisition of dimensions on parts of various shapes and complexity, potentially performed in any kind of environment. Due to its impressive portability, the HandySCAN 3D can perform the acquisition directly in the design studio but also on the customer's site or on a production floor.

Since the designer wants to create a prototype with the model as a reference, the acquisition must be accurate and give all the information needed to fabricate the prototype. The HandySCAN 3D will provide complete and accurate mesh models.

The HandySCAN 3D solution helps save a considerable amount of time compared to traditional methods. Dimensions that are necessary for the prototyping process are quickly measured and are made readily available so that the designer can perform the work.
