RAF 3D SCANNING SERVICES
RAF 3D Technologies Inc. is offering advanced laser 3D scanning services in Lower Mainland, BC
LASER 3D SCANNING
With our laser 3D scanner, we can meet most industrial standards. The blue-colored lasers allows for scanning dark or reflective surfaces with higher resolution and accuracy that is difficult for other methods of scanning.
LED 3D SCANNING
If you need a fast turnaround time and high quality 3D scanned models, the LED scanning is the right choice. The ability to rapidly scan objects makes this method an excellent choice when it comes to speed.
COLOR 3D SCANNING
For those who need to capture the texture and colour of an object, we offer 3D scanning solutions in color. This is a great alternative to photogrammetry and a good option for folks in the video games, fine arts, and film industry.
You will be receiving two versions of your 3D scanned item, one with optimization and alignments and another one with raw data. We deliver files in 3mf, stl or obj format.
This collection of renders features a variety of 3D scanned parts, each one carefully reconstructed in digital form. By combining multiple scans, it’s possible to create composite models that would be very time consuming to generate from scratch.
I reached out to RAF 3D to scan a part and convert into a 3D model. As this was my first time using a 3D scanning service, the staff was friendly and took the time to educate me on the process. The service was quick, and they provided a high-resolution mesh file of my part. I highly recommend RAF’s service to anyone looking for a fast and high-quality scan for their personal and professional projects.
3D SCANNING APPLICATIONS
3D scanning technology is more often used in the aerospace industry to help create designs and build parts for aircraft, small or large. In fact, there are few technologies that can match 3D scanning when it comes to accuracy. This is why it’s commonly used by aviation companies as a key element in their design projects.
3D scanning can capture complex geometries and dimensions with ease, which makes it better suited for creating 3D models than using CAD. The automotive industry uses 3D scanning to create high-quality parts very quickly in comparison to more traditional metrology methods.
Film & VFX (CGI)
In the world of films and video games, CGI and visual effects are used to create everything from massive war scenes and dragons to character animations. 3D scanning allows filmmakers to scan real-world objects in order to re-create them digitally on screen.
3D scanners enable reverse engineering to leverage accurate 3D measurement data to reproduce objects as they were first manufactured. This can significantly cut off the measuring time while ensuring that accuracy is retained to the highest level possible.
With the advent of 3D scanning technology, it is possible to quickly acquire the dimensions of a model in order to efficiently produce a prototype. Given that alterations made on the prototype can be easily integrated into other models, prototyping can greatly reduce any incongruities between iterative versions of a design.
3D scanners are already successfully used in many manufacturing processes as they can very accurately duplicate physical objects allowing them to be copied. This makes laser scanners useful for capturing data that is used for reconstructing how devices might have performed over time and being able to predict future performance of a device or its possible failure based on historical information previously recorded.
Orthotic and prosthetic specialists, healthcare professionals, and technicians are required to scan their patient’s bodies with non-contact devices in order to design and manufacture orthoses or prostheses. Non-contact 3D scanners allow for this.
