3D scanning is common practice in scientific research, heritage preservation, online museums and more. With multiple 3D scanning applications in both science and education, 3D technology has made it possible to interact with objects by creating a precise digital copy, allowing for more versatility and collaborative work like never before. Online museums created with 3D scanning technology provide heritage preservation for future generations to come, as well as bring down geographical boundaries, making culture more accessible to all. 3D scanning in research is a fast, accurate method for comparing shapes and 3D measurements, while also being very effective for recreating scenes in VR for immersive training.
