3D scanning for additive manufacturing

State-of-the-art hardware and software capabilities are available with us to capture the 3D shape of an existing part for digital processing.

These can then be imported into our 3D CAD packages and manipulated if necessary before being 3D printed.

In addition, the digital data can be used in software simulation of the part under service conditions to determine if it is fit for service. The scanning facility is ideal for making custom parts such as medical implants.
