The Technology to Digitalize Your World: 3D Scanning

Possessing an opposite sense of 3D printing, 3D scanning is the technology used to transport physical objects into the digital world. The point cloud data acquired by 3D scanners is usually converted to the triangular STL format for later use, including

(1) 3D printing (the STL file needs proper inspection & fixing for printability though).

(2) Retopology: a process to convert the triangular-polygon nature of the STL to a quad-based polygon format (usually OBJ) with which the gaming, animation and movie industries mainly work.


(3) Reverse Engineering: a process to convert the triangular-polygon nature of the STL to a boundary representation (B-rep) based CAD model for industrial designing and manufacturing purpose.

In Better 3D Lab, we primarily use non-contact structural light 3D scanners to achieve high speed, high precision and great versatility that we need for various circumstances. Have a look at these sample files from our previous projects.

*Note:
1. The STL files are captured and saved directly from the scanners and represented as raw data to showcase the quality of our scanners. Further polishing and enhancement are usually required to achieve the best quality.

2. The STL files provided here have been processed with the triangle-reduction command for reducing the file size. The online previews use even lesser triangles. Therefore, their visual appearance can not 100% represent the original scan data; the original scan data has a better resolution and surface quality.
