3D scanner services really have opened up a whole new world of opportunity because of its ability to capture pretty much anything that is in our world and turn it into a digital model within a number of minutes. 3D scanner services are used to:
- Make CAD models of actual parts in order to capture designs, update products and create new products.
- Verify the quality of a certain product. This is done with comparison to CAD models.
- Manufacture customized products for everything from health and dental care to fashion and retail.
- Scan a whole building in order to then make a 3D model of it.
This is not even scratching the surface of all the things that 3D scanner services are capabl
Most people have heard of the computerized tomography scan (CT scan). Many people have heart of this kind of scan because of its widespread use in medicine. The CT scan (also called CAT scan) allows doctors to take two dimensional (2D) x-rays to create three dimensional (3D) images. Since its creation, 3D scanning technology has been developed to be used in a wide variety of fields.
The 3D scanning technology was invented in 1972. Godfrey Hounsfield and Allan Cormack developed the first CT scanners. In 1979, the pair was awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine and science for their work on computer assisted tomography. By 1974, CT scanners were starting to be used on a more widespread ba
