Why you should register
Parts break, machines go out of production - but 3D scanning and 3D printing can breathe new life into hardware when there’s no access to the original design. Scan-to-print workflows can be the fastest way to quickly produce parts that reference real-world components. By understanding the 3D scanning process and the technology behind it, you will gain the ability to generate replacement parts, machine upgrades, ands entirely new aftermarket products.
This webinar will offer a detailed look at how to start using 3D scanning to improve part design and production when paired with reverse engineering CAD and 3D printing. Amos Dudley, Application Engineer at Formlabs, will give an overview of scan-to-print workflows which build on existing components, and produce end-use stereolithography (SLA) 3D printed parts suitable for the machine shop or the assembly line.
What you will learn
- How to choose the right 3D scanner for your application’s tolerances
- How to process and repair 3D scanned objects for part replication
- How to rapidly create editable designs from 3D scans
- How SLA 3D printing complements 3D scanning with end-use materials and accuracy
