Rapid 3D provides 3D scanning services for quality control, inspection, and product design. We specialize in on and off-site 3D laser scanning, and CAD modeling services. 3D Scanning uses optical technology to rapidly capture data to define complex shapes. In 3D scanning, an optical projector, such as laser or structured light, and a camera are used. An output of this scanning process is called a "cloud of points". In some cases, several positions and orientations may need to be scanned to ensure that complete coverage is achieved. A polygon mesh or STL file can be generated from the triangulated point clouds.
