Laser Scanning Services for 3D Printing

Prompt, Accurate Laser Scanning Services for 3D Printing

Design and manufacturing engineers can’t get enough of 3D printing to prove out ideas and realize their designs. If you need scan data and fast deliverables for your next 3D printing project, look no further than TriMet. Depending on the size and complexity of the object, TriMet uses various 3D scanning methodologies to deliver the highest quality scan and an .STL file that meets your accuracy requirements. Our specialty is creating 3D CAD models from scanned data, so we can take you one step further toward your concept.

There’s no doubt that 3D printing has significantly increased in popularity in recent years. While many people are opting to buy their own 3D printer, a digital file needs to exist first to get the printing process started. That’s where TriMet comes in. It offers laser scanning for 3D printing to establish the file. Let’s go over the process.

Information About How the Laser Scanning Process Works

Laser scanning is a complex technique, but there’s a basic explanation of how the process will likely go. The first step is for the potential customer to reach out to TriMet to tell them about the object they need scanned. Depending on the size of the object, the customer will then either get the item to TriMet or someone from the company will go to them to do the scanning process. We have several facilities across the U.S. for you to get in touch with.

TriMet scans all angles of the object using a laser that won’t cause any damage. It establishes data points, which then formulate into a digital 3D CAD model that represents the item exactly as it appears as a real-world object. Then it goes into an STL file. That file then goes to the customer, who can use it for 3D printing.
