Product development refers to all of the stages involved in bringing a product to market—from inception through conception and engineering design to product development. Computer-aided design (CAD) software is used as a design tool to enhance product development.
As project managers, senior engineers, or engineering directors, you are responsible for finding ideas that lead to new product introduction. Innovation is the essential element that maintains your company’s competitive edge through the development of new technologies, new projects, new angles, and new niches that help you surpass your competitors.
As design engineers or industrial designers, you participate in all of the activities related to product development and implementation. You must first determine if the design intent is feasible and if all of the necessary tools and software to realize the whole project are accessible and available. Then, you design parts (often with complex shapes and geometries) and create 3D models while minimizing iterations in order to shorten the design cycle.
With Creaform’s portable 3D scanners, three new avenues opened up to engineers and designers. You can develop new innovative products with complex shapes and designs. You can gain new customers by pushing your product development further, where your competitors cannot go. You can be more competitive and accelerate the time to market of your new innovative products.
High-resolution, versatile, simple, and fast 3D scanning tools and software are the solutions to fulfill your goals and overcome your challenges.
High level of detail:
With high-resolution cameras for geometry and color cameras for texture, the scan quality is perfect for developing new innovative products and designing complex geometries.
With advanced laser and optical technologies and limitless scanning volumes, 3D scanners can measure any part, regardless of size, shape, material, surface finish, and complexity.
With plug-and-play devices and user-friendly interfaces, expertise in 3D scanning is not required. You will get back to your usual workflow (along with all of the necessary 3D dimensions) in a trice.
With the instant mesh feature, the generated mesh is already lightened and processed, ready to be seamlessly integrated into your preferred reverse engineering, CAD, or 3D printing software.
