Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) July 11, 2008 -- The 3D Scanning is a new webpage that was just added to the new Prototyping Website that has just been released. This new 3D Scanners webpage has all of the information you need to know of 3D Scanners and Rapid Manufacturing and the main information you need to know on 3D Manufacturing. You can visit this 3D Scanning Process webpage at: http://www.prototypezone.com/3d-scanning/
Here is an excerpt from the new 3D Scanning and 3D Scanner:
â3D scanner: 3D scanning implies analyzing the real-world environment or objects for collecting data on their appearance, i.e. color and shape. Digital 3D models can be constructed from the data collected. Such devices are being used by the amusement industry extensively for producing video games and movies. This technology is more widely used in reverse engineering, industrial design, prototyping, keeping records of cultural artifacts, and computer vision. A number of technologies have been used for building the three-dimensional scanning devices. Every technology has limitations, costs, and advantages.
Functionality: The idea behind using a three-dimensional scanner is creating a Point Cloud of the Geometric Samples on the subjectâs surface. The subjectâs shape can then be extrapolated by using these points. If information regarding color is gathered at every juncture, the determination of colors on subjectâs surface can be easily done. 3D scanners share analogy with cameras.â
