3D Scanning in the Automotive Industry
3D scanning is a process that 3d captures the shape of an object and produces a 3D model of it. 3D scanners has been around for decades, but 3d scanning technologies have advanced drastically in recent years with 3d scanners becoming more affordable and easier to use.
On this page, we’re going to discuss how and why you would want to 3d scan cars, as well as some ways that 3d scanning is changing the Automotive sector for both modern & classic cars.
Achieve real time results with the peel 3d scanner. STLs are instantly created as you scan.
Consistent and reliable results are achieved from 3d scanning due to digitally accurate technology and removal of human error.
peel 3d scanners pick up details as fine as 0.025mm and even the smoothest of gradual curves over big surfaces.
Every peel 3d scanner comes with free access to the STL editing software. Edit, change and play around with scans freely.
Extract all the information you need from your 3D scans and send them right to your preferred CAD software.
High Quality Scans
Plug the peel 3d scanner into a computer, start up the software and begin.
A mesh shape is saved directly onto the peel 3d software
Edit and modify the mesh shape so that it is ready to be exported into your CAD software
As scanning technologies become more affordable, accurate, user-friendly and less time consuming; it’s changing the automotive industry in a number of ways. 3D scanning of their cars has become a standard requirement for car manufacturers, and 3d printed scale models have been adopted by almost all auto companies as being more cost effective than clay or wooden mockups. 3D scanned 3D printouts can also be used to help visualize ideas that would otherwise require expensive prototyping.
Select the right scanner for you
How much does 3D scanning cost? Is a 3D scanner worth it? Take a look at the peel 3d range and see how it can help your business grow
peel 2 CAD-s
Car Interiors and fittings
The peel 2 CAD-S has the highest mesh resolution and is recommended for smaller parts in comparison to other peel 3d scanners.
It offers the highest accuracy and is ideal for more intricate, complex parts
peel 2 CAD
Body Panels and Exhausts
The peel 2 CAD has the largest scanning area and depth of field in the scanner range, therefore it can scan larger parts quicker than the peel 2 CAD-S.
The accuracy of the peel 2 CAD is sufficient enough for large, flat surfaces
peel 2 CAD-S and peel 2 CAD
Are you’re parts large? Do they contain really fine features?
Use both the peel 2 CAD and peel 2 CAD-S together. With the peel 2 CAD you are able to scan larger surfaces quickly and accurately. If there are any finer details requiring more attention, use the peel 2 CAD-S to go the same area to ensure all the finest geometry is gathered.
Use both scanners to improve efficiency.
Protect your Equipment
Whenever your in the workshop or construction site there are always potential hazards that could damage your equipment.
Feel confident that your equipment is safe by getting a strong and durable container for your peel 3d scanner.
