We are looking into purchasing a 3D scanner at work, I have been chosen to research the project and make reccomendations. There will be 3 groups using the scanner, The gauge building group, QC and design. These same groups also use our Eden 500v 3D printer and we plan on printing the scans. We will be scanning things from forks to crockpots in size. Currently I am looking at a GOM brand ATOS "white light" scanner in 2 megapixles.
CMM, contact, non contact and self contained scanners are the main focus right now.
What have others used or bought?
