Given how often scanning metal parts is done by engineers, it should be a straightforward process, but it often isn’t. Shiny objects are a nightmare for most scanners: holes and dark surfaces cause endless trouble, and when the objects are located in hard to reach places, getting your scanning rig set up can be a pain.
However, with Artec Leo’s 3D point accuracy of up to 0.1 mm, automatic background removal, data acquisition speed of up to 35 million points/second, and many other features, the process is that much easier. This suspension bracket was captured in its entirety in a total of 12 minutes, including scanning and processing. Leo’s completely cable-free operation, blistering data acquisition speed, and remarkable accuracy ensured that the 3D model was quickly, easily, and accurately digitized.
Zoom in to see how every minute contour of its rough surface has been faithfully recorded to produce a 3D model ready for quality inspection, reverse engineering, or whatever workflow you might want to use it in.
