What is 3D scanning?

3D scanning is to capture the physical object and transform it into a digital 3D model

From 3D Scan to CAD

A 3D model is a digital representation of a physical object. By using 3D scanning to capture the physical object, it can better conceptualize an idea or create a starting point for modeling in CAD. The 3D model can be used for various purpose. 

From 3D Scan to 3D Print

By capturing the existing object into the computer, users can modify or directly re-create an object by using a 3D printer. High-resolution models can be used for industrial applications and manufacturing, while also be user-friendly to home users.
