3D Scanning

We produce high resolution 3D scans with industry leading accuracy from 0.03mm. We can 3D scan any object, any size, from just a few mm up to 100m plus and any surface, any colour.

Whatever you need scanning, we can do it accurately and efficiently and provide you with the reliable scan data you need.

With years of experience as design engineers, our first and most important step is to talk to you to understand your requirements from the scan; e.g.

  • what do you want to use the scan data for?
  • how are you using it?
  • what software are you using?

We then tailor our service to best fit your needs and to save you time and money. We will only deliver excellent scan data but we will tailor the delivery of data to fit in seamlessly to your downstream processes.

This can include:

  • Delivery of scan data sensibly orientated, this may be at 0,0,0 with ‘Z up’ or ‘Y up’ or aligned or fitted to an existing CAD position.
  • Extraction of features such as planes, axis, cylinder and points.
  • Conversion to CAD surfaces, quick surfaces, CAD, or ‘A’ class surfaces.
  • Exported to your native CAD format.
  • Limit of file size without loss of detail to work efficiently on your computer and software systems.

We can 3D scan any object, any size, from just a few mm up to 100m plus. We can also scan any surface, any colour, including gloss black, chrome and glass which can be problematic in some cases, but not for us due to the unique technology that we use.

We have many scanning systems to ensure the very best data for your application, including:

  • Photogrammetry
  • White light scanners
  • Laser based metrology scanner (few millimetres to >10 metres)
  • Long range laser scanner (2 metres to 140 metres)

We are the only service provider in the UK to use the state-of-the-art Creaform Metrascan Elite and probe, which gives us incredible speed, accuracy and impressive capabilities on challenging materials.

For the 3D scanning of large objects (trucks, ships, bridges, buildings etc), we use our industry leading Surphaser laser scanner, which allows us to obtain high accuracy with the best clean and detailed data available.

How Capture Point can help you

REVERSE ENGINEERING

We use the very latest metrology grade scanning systems to ensure our reverse engineering process starts with the very best data possible to create CAD models for use in downstream processes.

PART INSPECTION / METROLOGY

We scan your parts and align and compare the data to an existing CAD master model, which allows us to quickly see deviations over the object or direct us to inspect specific points.

3D SCANNING

We produce high resolution 3D scans with industry leading accuracy from 0.03mm. We can 3D scan any object, any size, from just a few mm up to 100m plus and any surface, any colour.
