3D Scanning is a simple method of building virtual models of objects by undertaking physical measurements of the object. This process is quick and accurate and the device which facilitates the capturing of 3D scan information is a 3D scanner. The output of the 3D scanner which is called 3D scan data is used to convert the data into virtual models and enables comparison with the intended design of the physical object. Driven by accuracy and optimization in the product development, more manufacturers are adopting 3D scanning to ensure low manufacturing costs along with improved product. The 3D scanners are predominantly used by the Aerospace sector and continue to witness demand. At the same time, the 3D scanning is gaining momentum in medical field due to the increase in requirement of implants for surgeries in healthcare.
