How does dimensional inspection with 3D scanning work?

1. 3D Scan

Once we receive your parts, we’ll scan them with our high-resolution 3D scanners.

2. CAD Overlay

After your parts are scanned, we’ll align them with your original design in our analysis software.

3. Inspection

We then perform the dimensional inspection, generating a deviation map and callouts for critical dimensions.

4. PDF Report

Finally, we will generate a custom PDF report listing all of the data we’ve gathered.

What data can be compared?

Part-to-CAD Comparison

We can overlay a 3D scan of your production part onto the original CAD and identify and deviations caused by production errors.

Part-to-Part Comparison

We can compare 3D scans of identical production parts. Ideal for applications such as multi-cavity molds.

Tooling Inspection

We can compare 3D scans of identical production parts. Ideal for applications such as multi-cavity molds.

What types of analysis can be performed?

Deviation Map

By aligning 3D scans of your production parts with your original CAD we can generate a heat map showing deviation between the two.

Point Inspection

For a more in-depth analysis of your part, we can measure the deviation at any number of discrete points.

2D Planar Profile

For extrusions and other symmetrical parts, we can also preform an analysis on any 2D cross-section of your design.

What are the deliverables?

The data generated by our dimensional inspection services is delivered in a comprehensive, customizable PDF report. With a PDF, you can easily disseminate information to colleagues or include the report as an addendum to your own  internal documentation. Click the button below to see an example report.
