Scanning

Finite Element Analysis3D Digitizing at ADC; From raw data input to precise output, ADC can streamline your prototyping, design, or modeling process to meet and exceed your expectations. The results are better products, at less cost.

Reverse engineering is the quickest and most economical method for transferring 3D data into any computer system.

In addition to using the Atos White Light Scanner®, ADC uses the Perceptron® laser scanner, and the CGI RE 1000 system for reverse engineering. The 3D scissors example was obtained from a hand-carved wood handle. ADC's experienced staff imported the internal geometry of the wood handle into Pro/ENGINEER® to create complete solid models and assemblies as pictured to the right.

These models illustrate the scanning series of a combustion bowl for Wegner Automotive. From top: a point cloud is first imported, then polygons are created in Geomagic Studio software, patches are made to fill in gaps and holes, finally surfaces are laid on.  In the third image, a NURBS surface file is processed by Delcam PowerMill software to specify milling tools and toolpaths, check for clearances, and program five-axis machining. The resulting CAM file is sent for milling on a Bostomatic 505 machine.
