3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering

We decided to put our new 3D scanner through its paces and decided a great challenge would be to scan and model a complex part that was originally injection moulded. The part we scanned was the cover of a pass-through plug that measures hows much electricity a socket is using. Read more…
