3D Scanning

With manufactured and engineered components having increasingly more complex geometry, scanning components is the fastest and most accurate way to inspect or convert to CAD/CAM files for replicating/modifying/inspecting or reverse engineering of an original component.

3D Scanners can offer a cost effective solution for Engineers, manufacturers, researchers, artists, designers & toolmakers to have components scanned or verified at any stage of product development, thus reducing development and manufacturing lead times.

At 3D Scanners we utilise the Shining 3D OpticScan QL, blue light optical scanning system coupled with high end SHININGFORM XOR software to convert and inspect the scanned component. Being a non contact scanning system delicate and intricate components can easily be scanned, with sizes ranging from 10mm to 2000mm can be accurately scanned.

Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is a process of capturing data from a physical component, with our Shining 3D optical scanner, from the point cloud data captured we can then export it to the powerful SHININGFORM XOR software where surfaces are added to the polygonized model to produce a water tight surface file, which can then be exported to CAD/CAM and rapid prototyping software.

Suitable files that can be exported in are STL, IGES, TXT, STEP ASCI and parasolid XT.


After manufacturing a complex component how do you check critical areas with a high degree of accuracy?

With the Shining 3D system coupled with the powerful SHININGFORM XOR software we can overlay the original CAD file to the high resolution scan to compare features, surfaces and tolerances.

This will clearly highlight discrepancies between design and manufacture of components for close fitting parts and where flatness and tolerances are of high importance to a components manufacture, thus eliminating the guesswork, which will reduce development costs and cycle times as well as improving your bottom line.

This can be used for quality control, tooling verification, plastic components, aerospace, and metal products to establish conformity to the original CAD data.

For Quotes:

In order to accurately quote on scanning an object please take a series of photos from different angles together with a ruler or tape measure next to the part so that we can get an idea of scale. Please then go to our Request a Quote section and complete the required fields and then continue to upload your photos where we can then provide you with a quotation or contact you for further information.

Onsite scanning is available on a daily rate for more information please contact us directly.
