The capabilities and possibilities of 3D Laser Scanning is plentiful, and it will be almost impossible to document all of its applications over here in our site. Wrapping up our sections on the various applications of 3D laser scanning, we would like to just highlight a couple more examples on how this exciting technology is able to help break down existing barriers in the field of measurements and dimensional control. 

Let's explore the realm of historical artifacts, for instance. These artifacts hold great value in various ways, such as history, culture, education as well as cash value, and needs to be handled with care. With 3D laser scanning, a digital 3D model of the artifact can be created by 3D Meshing in a quick, accurate, and safe manner, without having to touch the delicate artifact. The emitted class 1 lasers are perfectly safe for the artifact as well in terms of radiation. With the water-tight 3D model and the interactive nature of the programmes, viewers can now rotate and view the artifact from various angles, further enhancing the possibilities in the field of education.  Just imagine, without travelling to China, you can now view the the famous Terracotta Army in your own country!

Another example would be translation into 3D printing. 3D printing has many benefits that are well known, such as cost-savings, less wastage and speed. 3D laser scanning provides the perfect complement to the 3D printing technology by having the ability to accurately and quickly scanning an object and transform it into point cloud. Again, by performing 3D Meshing, a water-tight 3D model is then created from this data, and can be easily translated to many 3D printing softwares out there with the .STL format. This greatly shaves time off the workflow process, as objects now do not have to be created digitally from scratch.

This section, and those before it, merely illustrate some of the common uses of 3D Laser Scanning and other dimensional control solutions that we have. At Aries Geomatics, we firmly believe in the potential of laser-aided geomatics, and warmly invite all requests and enquiries with regards to the application of our services. Do feel free to get in touch with us via the contact section!
