3D digitisation

3D digitisation at cirp
3D digitisation

3D digitisation is the process of recording the data of physical objects, and is an established design tool. Optical 3D digitisation using the ATOS Core system offered by the company GOM allows us to make digital models of small or large objects, regardless of whether their geometry is simple or complex.

The scanning system’s mobility means that we can do this at your premises instead of in-house. Your objects are scanned without being touched, which means that the “original” is not harmed in any way. You can choose to receive the output data either as a pure point cloud or as a fully polygonised frame, depending on what you want to use it for.

We can also use suitable software to assist you with the further processing of the high-precision digital data, for example with respect to quality controls involving target/actual comparisons or preparations for reverse engineering.We are here to provide competent and active assistance in any situation, whether it’s solving and processing complex measurement technology and quality assurance tasks, creating and completing your 3D digital archives and libraries, or preparing data for production.

Additive manufactured spare part

cirp can rely on a wide range of options to restore components that are no longer available. The reverse engineering method of a physically existent sewing machine gear wheel used in this case is just one possibility to create a fully functioning spare part. In compliance with all legal standards, the faulty gear wheel was digitized using the optical measurement method. Then one tooth of the whole gear wheel was reconstructed in a complex parametric process based on the digital data. The next step was to restore the individual tooth with the aid of a linear circle pattern in a digital image of the as-delivered original gear wheel. A spare part to repair used machines and equipment is well worth the investment when it comes to sustainability.

Project: Additive manufactured spare part. cirp created the physical model using selective laser sintering on account of the very significant stresses.

Material: PA3200 GF
