3D scanning is all about representing an object in digital form. Whatever may be the product, one can capture its digital model using a 3D scanner within minutes. Now-a-days, there are a huge number of scanning equipments are used to convert the physical elements into 3D digital replicas. This can be called as a world of opportunity for thousands of companies who need CAD models of real parts, updating new designs using the old one, accurate 3D model of a building, etc. Unfortunately, this technology is yet to be adopted by many potential users around the world.

Probably the awareness is required for 3D scan process, that uses an automated software for creating less expensive and accurate model within minutes. However, due to the advanced technology, the process is now faster and delivers better result than before.

What are 3D Scanners?
This is a technology that provides fast and accurate 3D scan data by measuring the physical element through a device that uses lasers, x-rays, lights. etc. The measurement is carried out in an organized manner through a computer. The scanning device can be called as, laser scanner, industrial CT, 3D digitizer, LIDAR, etc. The primary objective of this technology is to capture the accurate graphical model with correct measurements.

What are the Types Available?
The scanning process can be divided into 2 types. Contact and non-contact scanning. In case of contact process, a coordinated measure machine is used to digitize different points on the surface of an object, but in case of non-contact, the entire part of the object is captured by the scanner.

Popular Models:
Desktop 3D scanner: EinScan-S
For Inspection: OptimScan-5M, OpticScan-3M
Handhold: EinScan-Ⅱ, Artec Eva™
For dental application: AutoScan-DS200, AutoScan-DS
For computer aided design (CAD): EaScan-D, EaScan-Q, EaScan-5M, EaScan-T, AutoScan-IT, AutoScan-HA etc.

What are the Requirements?
Scanning is required for different applications like 3d printing, inspection, reverse engineering etc. A dedicated software is also required to perform the whole process. As the process collects a considerable amount of data, it is easy to recreate a thing into a three dimensional digital model.

The other applications are,
• Creating visualization, animation
• Making changes in an existing product design
• To capture the model of a small product
• Archiving the historic monuments, old ships, buildings
• Taking the models of coins, important devices, fingerprint, some texture etc.

However, approach of 3D scanner is based on the imaging principle that receives data through short range, mid range and long range.
