If you’ve got a robust Scan-to-CAD operation or are just starting in the world of reverse engineering, budget can be one of the top factors guiding your decisions on what scanners, software, and accessories to add to your arsenal.
Fortunately, getting set up with some of the best tools on the market doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are a few ways you can save on your next purchase.
Get a Certified Used Scanner
Buying used doesn’t have to mean getting a lesser scanner—it can be a great way to up your scanning game without covering a big-budget item. (For a peek at our Certified Used inventory, reach out and let us know.)
Use Budget-Friendly Software Options
When it comes to software, there are a number of options that may fit into your budget a bit easier than others. For a few examples, check out Quicksurface and Mesh2Surface for reverse engineering and Geomagic Essentials for inspection and quality control.
Finance Your Next Big Buy
Sometimes, big purchases can mean a lot of red tape—trying to work within a budget, protect your cash flow, or preserve space on your current lines of credit. With third-party financing, however, you can loan or lease, with terms anywhere from 12 months to 84 months. And, with approvals up to $500,000, you can get working on your next project now—not later.
