3D scanning is the process of converting a physical object into a digital format, facilitating digitalisation in
manufacturing. Using a 3D scanner, the shape and geometry of the object is collected from various angles and
reconstructed, this results in a 3D model in digital format such as stl or stp file. The acquired 3D data can be
This enables process and product optimization in a smart manufacturing environment.
The attendees will become familiar with the principles of common 3D scanners based on laser, white light
and x-ray technologies. Three-dimensional scanning approaches for both external and internal features, from
simple to complex parts with varying surface finish will be described in detail. Common 3D measurements and
simple reverse engineering approaches using will be explained.
This course consists of 3 full-day sessions including: a hands-on session using 3D scanners, data analysis, and
reverse engineering. By the end of the course, the attendees will be able to recommend suitable 3D scanning
technologies for their applications, and have a better appreciation for digital manufacturing.
The course is suitable for those who are currently employed or wish to be employed in the manufacturing
related fields. A typical candidate profile could be:
Our webinar was held on 4 May 2022 to offer an introduction to this course. You can also watch our webinar's video recording at our YouTube webpage.
The programme employs the Learn-Practise-Implement™ (LPI™) pedagogy, where fundamental knowledge and principles taught will be reinforced with hands-on practices.
Participants will be awarded with a Certificate of Attendance (COA) by SIMTech and ARTC if they meet the following criteria:
