Key Market Trends

Structured Light Scanner by Equipment Type to Drive Market Growth
  • Structured Light 3D Scanner is a 3D scanning device for measuring the 3D shape of an object using a single light source that projects multiple lines onto an object being tracked by a camera or multiple cameras. This is in contrast to a laser scanner, which emits different laser dots on the same object one after the other.
  • Applications such as object reverse engineering for CAD data, volume measurement of engineering parts, motion and environmental capture for augmented reality games, body measurements for fashion retail, automated optical inspection on high-speed production lines, and obstacle detection systems on drones machines. aircraft are actively introducing structured light scanners.
  • Offering features such as quick installation and no setup time, handheld 3D scanners integrate seamlessly into them. As such, several portable 3D printers for 3D printing use structured light technology. The technology uses trigonometric triangulation, projecting a pattern of light onto an object for scanning.
  • In August 2019, FARO's Cobalt Design family of structured light scanners looked at 3D data acquisition for small complex shapes with a variety of textures and colors. The scanners can capture millions of measurement points in just a second with an accuracy of 3.1 megapixels for small to medium complex objects. The newly launched Polyga h4 handheld 3D scanner offers structured light as the basis for a multiple image template for 3D surveys starting at 9$990.
  • However, a significant disadvantage of this type of scanner is that it is sensitive to the lighting conditions in this environment, which creates serious problems when working outdoors.

scopes and overview of models / Sudo Null IT News

3D laser scanning - creating a digital model of a physical body using a laser beam. The technology is non-contact, works at close and long distances, eliminates damage to objects during scanning. The principle of operation of 3D laser scanners: a directed laser beam is reflected from the surface of an object, forming a cloud of points. Each point has its own coordinates in space. The software identifies them and creates a finished 3D digital model based on this data.

In this overview, you will find out where laser scanning is used and what equipment is used to solve related tasks.

Purpose of laser scanners

Source: newequipment. com

Compared to traditional measurement methods, laser scanners have an important advantage - they can digitize objects with complex surfaces and work in hard-to-reach places for humans. The main areas of application of devices are input and output quality control in production, inspection of working devices in order to prevent and eliminate defects, reverse engineering and other areas.

Construction, renovation and renovation of objects

Source: ellisdon.com

During the preparation of the building project, it is necessary to evaluate the features of the site and the cost of the forthcoming works. With the help of 3D laser scanners, a landscape model is created, on the basis of which further work is carried out. During the construction process, intermediate control of the geometry of future buildings is required: walls, corners, openings, etc. Laser scanning copes with this task more accurately and faster than conventional measuring technologies.

The basis for an exterior or interior renovation is often an accurate digital model, on the basis of which changes and additions to the current interior or exterior are planned. Laser scanners are also indispensable in this area.

Road networks and transport

Laser scanning is becoming an integral part of the planning and creation of urban and suburban road networks, tunnels, pedestrian sections, railways, ports. The technology is used to assess the current state of coatings, plan and estimate the cost of repairs, to obtain models of perennial structures, such as bridges. The equipment is involved in the design, manufacture, repair and tuning of cars, air transport and ships.

Public utilities

With the help of 3D laser scanners, it became possible to quickly digitize and document engineering communications. Scanning significantly saves time during maintenance and reconstruction. The devices work remotely, minimizing the risks of people when working in adverse conditions and in hard-to-reach areas.

Oilfield installations

Oil production complexes located in the water need constant monitoring of work processes. Objects are regularly exposed to adverse and changeable environmental influences: winds of different strengths and directions, currents, temperature changes, etc. 3D laser scanning is becoming an integral part of the inspection of oil production installations. The equipment allows you to quickly identify and fix deformations and other damage, control wear, calculate the timing of scheduled maintenance, and prevent accidents.

3D laser scanning is replacing photographs and manual measurements in investigative processes and forensic examinations. The devices create three-dimensional models of scenes of incidents with accurate fixation of the location of objects and the distances between them. The data is used in the process of pre-trial and litigation.

Other applications

3D laser scanners facilitate and streamline workflows in the following areas:

  • In cartography and geodesy, when creating terrain plans, maps, geographic information systems (GIS).
  • In archeology, when restoring and preserving ancient artifacts.
  • In paleontology, to create missing parts of excavated skeletons.
  • In medicine, including plastic surgery and dentistry.

Overview of models and manufacturers

FARO Focus

Reduce construction costs and time with FARO Focus

Source: autodesk.com

US construction company Gilbane invested $60,000 in a FARO Focus-S 350 laser scanner, software, and employee training. At first glance, the amount seems too large for a small-scale firm. But, after the calculations, the company's management came to the conclusion that the investment will pay off in the shortest possible time.

According to Gilbane's director of 3D design, John Tocci Jr., after introducing the expensive new technology, the company began to use the equipment even in areas where it was not originally planned. The specialists managed to save $30,000 for one hour of Focus-S 350 and Autodesk Revit software.

Building a digital model of air ducts and other systems made it possible to avoid errors during the installation of physical objects, which could take several weeks. The use of FARO Focus in the assembly of plumbing, electrical and mechanical installations helped to optimize costs at all stages of work

Case “Modernization of the building of the University of Miami”

At the time of the start of work, the architects had at their disposal drawings made 85 years ago, and a little more than 4.5 thousand square meters of the old building. Using a 3D laser scanner, Gilbane digitized the training areas in one day. Modernization of load-bearing structures, as well as the main utility systems: plumbing, electrical and ventilation, was based on data obtained from scanning.

Quality Inspection with ScanTech

Source: 3d-scantech.com

The advantage of metal stamping over forging and casting is the lower weight and thickness of the resulting parts. The use of molds gives high accuracy and maximum compliance of the obtained parts with the specified characteristics, but does not completely exclude deviations and deformations. Which, in turn, can lead to difficulties in assembling finished products and reducing product quality. Therefore, constant quality inspection is a necessary part of production.

Understanding the manufacturer's tasks, ScanTech suggested checking the quality of stamped parts using the PRINCE laser scanner. The ability to switch blue and red laser modes allowed the device to combine the functionality of traditional portable and metrological 3D scanners. The mode of operation with an active beam of a red laser provides fast digitization of objects. In the case of increased requirements for accuracy and detail, turn on the blue laser beam mode.

Timberlake's "Man of the Woods" program features scenery brought to life on stage. First, the ScanLAB team digitized a number of corners of the forest in the US state of Oregon. Laser projectors then directed images over the auditorium and stage, painting amazing pictures of the Portland landscape on translucent canvases suspended in the air.

Given the limited preparation time, the large surface areas for displaying the image, and the consequent need for high image resolution, creating visual effects in a short time without using the chosen technology was impossible.
