3D scanning has significantly transformed capturing of data and reverse engineering products. It allows the dissemination of complex products, generation of unique precise computer imagery, and more.
Despite 3D scanners being excellent at 3D scanning complex scanning objects, they still struggle when scanning shiny, dark, and clear surfaces. This problem arises from the way the surfaces interact with a 3D scanner resulting in unsuitable scanning conditions and hinder proper scanning even if you set your scanner to its most ideal settings.
When scanning black or dark parts, the surface tends to absorb the light. Shiny surfaces such as jewelry, steel, chrome, or any reflective parts scatter and force the light to bounce in an uncontrollable direction. Similarly, clear surfaces such as transparent plastic or glass allow the light to pass through.
However, you can easily solve all the above problems and get a perfect scan using a 3D scanning spray.
Advantages of Using a 3D Scanning Spray
3D scanning sprays cover the challenging surface, thus providing an excellent condition for a perfect scan. Regardless of whether the surface is transparent, reflective, or highly textured, it gives complete coverage and enhanced scan-ability.
Provides an Even Surface
3D scanning sprays allow you to apply an even, uniform, and thin layer on every inch of your part to get an even surface that facilitates a clear and clean scan.
So What Are the Quality 3D Scanning Spray Products?
AESUB develops quality 3D scanning sprays to increase efficiency in your scanning. Currently, there are two AESUB products, and you can find them at Digitized Designs today.
AESUB Blue 3D Scanning Spray
AESUB Blue 3D scanning spray has an exceptional formula that allows easy spraying and fully disappears after some time. This means it won’t leave any mess or residue behind. It’s self-evaporating, thus suitable for delicate objects which you cannot clean after completing your project.
AESUB White Scanning Spray
AESUB White 3D scanning spray also has an exceptional formula and does not contain harmful Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) like most products available in the market. It is suitable for projects that take more time from a few hours to days since it does not disappear, but you can easily wipe it off with a cloth after scanning.
The surface of a product or part should not hinder you from capturing the perfect scan you want. Contact us at Digitized Designs to learn more about the products and services we offer. You can also check out our newest Aesub Sprays, the Aesub Orange, and Aesub Green.
