Many of our customers who purchase 3D Scanners are interested in generating STEP data to import into their CAD system of choice (Solidworks, Creo, ProE, Inventor, etc). Often, these customers are surprised to learn that CAD formats (STEP, IGES, etc) are a standard output format for 3D scanners.
Design engineering company ReitlingerEngineering GmbH+Co. KG, Weinstadt-Endersbach, was able to use reverse engineering and 3D printing to develop a labelling tool to aid in label placement on their product. This produced a flexible, fast and inexpensive solution compared to alternative methods.
At 3DChimera, we have seen countless examples where 3D scanning has brought value to our customer's engineering teams. Often, when considering a new scanner purchase, engineers are tasked to develop an ROI for an investment in 3D scanning. We generated this list to help you build that ROI for your management team!
