Service Details

Our 3D Inspection workflow utilizes 3D scanning technologies to virtually analyse the geometric features and shape of a real object. Using this technology, the real object's functionalities can be verified with a CAD nominal 3D model or another type of 3D scan object. We are able to provide a wide range of inspection reports.

A few of our most requested services include: 

  • Dimensional Inspection (Nominal CAD Vs. 3D Scan data)

  • First Article Inspection

  • CAD Reverse Engineering

  • Deformation Analysis

Service Included

  • Sections Analysis
  • 2D/3D GD&T/PMI dimensions
  • Boundary Deviations
  • Comparison Points

Aligned 3D Scan Data Vs. nominal CAD
Deviation Analysis

Frequently Asked Question

Briefly, the 3D scan data (generally STL file) is automatically aligned Vs. the CAD nominal file (STEP/IGES etc.). Various inspection tools can generate the deviation maps on the Reference Data, verify pass or fail GD&T information, and sectional measurements

The Critical Role of Inspection in Quality Assurance

Quality assurance is an essential aspect of any business, ensuring that products meet the highest standards and specifications. Inspection plays a critical role in quality assurance, and 3D scanning has become a powerful tool in this process.

With the advanced technology of 3D scanning, businesses can capture accurate and detailed measurements of physical objects. This allows for thorough Inspection and Analysis, identifying any defects or discrepancies. By comparing the 3D scan data with the desired specifications, businesses can ensure that their products meet the required standards.

The role of inspection goes beyond simply identifying flaws. It also allows businesses to identify areas for improvement. By analysing the 3D scan data, engineers and designers can pinpoint any design or manufacturing issues and make necessary adjustments. This proactive approach to quality control ensures that products are constantly evolving and improving.

Furthermore, inspection through 3D scanning provides businesses with valuable data for documentation and traceability. In industries such as aerospace or automotive, where safety and compliance are paramount, having accurate records of inspections can be crucial. 3D scanning allows for the creation of digital archives, providing a comprehensive history of each inspected product.
