Using a 3d scanner, I forged a key, held a skull, a heart and a gun in my hands

    Hi Habr!
    Once again I looked at the professionals in the field of 3d printing and 3d scanning.
    “Do you have anything interesting?”
    - That's what we have!

    - Wow, what else?
    High Precision Industrial Optical Scanner

    I decided to test a stationary 3d-scanner, as the manual I played dealt .

    “What do they mostly scan?”
    - Teeth and jewelry. There is? Spread it out.
    - Uh ... is it easier? Anything closer to hacking to practical tasks necessary in everyday life?
    - Well, you can scan the bent key, straighten it in the 3D editor, and then either print the casting mold or recreate it immediately on a metal 3d printer.
    - OK, then you just show how the scanning and editing process is going on, and I know how the metal 3d printer works, and I already did the mold for the casting.

    Scan technology

    Patent “Phase shifting optical triangulation”

    The principle of creating a 3D image of a surface from an interference image used in 3D scanners with structured light.

    Scanning process

    The key is mounted on the platform, thanks to a special “chewing gum”.

    The key is too shiny. First, it must be covered with a matte film.

    Talcum spray

    We place it in the camera for scanning, where it will be twisted, rotated and photographed. The

    scanned object can move along two axes (oscillation and rotation).

    Video of the scanning process.

    Scanning takes about 10 minutes, and in parallel the 3d model appears in the

    Processing program in the 3d editor.

    They removed the platform (but the “chewing gum” remained)

    A more serious editor. Allows grouping areas. We clean the model from the “chewing gum”.

    Almost ready for modification 3d-model.

    While the specialist was processing the model in a 3D editor, I looked around and found something interesting

    What have I noticed yet

    Printing on the basis of light-cured acrylate, one of the most accurate

    unassembled Liberator technologies

    in assembled form Liberator (75% of the original size)

    striking detail (tree height 2 cm)

    Tire for the treatment of hand injuries

    They say that it is much more convenient than the classic devices, because that light and personalized

    Skull 1

    model was used in a real neurosurgical operation

    Skull 2

    3d models are created on the basis of X-ray images



    It’s not at all like in school anatomy textbooks


    Dentist The use of 3D printers and 3D scanners is constantly increasing.


    3D printers for metal can work with incredible detail
