Hello from Sheffield

Post by Woodview »

Hello Everyone,

First, thanks to Jason Warren for his time, and help.

I'm just dipping my toe into laser scanning for the first time. I'm doing a project that was going to involve measuring up the interior load space of a Transit van, so that we could design some equipment to fit it better.
I decided it could be nice to laser scan it, so that we can work directly off real data. We'll be doing the follow up work in Solidworks.

I'll be looking for someone to do the scan tidy it ready for CAD import.

Any hints / tips / experience would be handy.

Welcome to the forum Dylan.

If it's only one scan why not rent a scanner and do this yourself? Or request a demo so they will do the scan for you?

You can then use CloudWorx SolidWorks to consume the data in the software.

Thanks.

Laser Scanning in Sheffield did this work. They've just completed the internal scan and are currently working on the data to export to STL. The first of views look fantastic and great resolution, and will give us a huge head start on the design work.
