Bridging the gap between scan and useful CAD data


Scan to CAD

Not all scanners were created equal, SCAN HD have invested in top of the range high accuracy scanning equipment to ensure the best possible scanning results. With our industry leading Creaform Handyscan 700 we are able to scan with a volumetric scan accuracy of 30 microns at a resolution of 0.03mm.

Acquiring the data and creating the scan is the first thing that needs to happen for creating useable data. For more details on our scanning equipment please click here.

SCAN HD draw on a wealth of experience in mesh editing, CAD modelling and surface design using software packages such as Siemens NX, Catia V5, Solidworks and GeoMagic Design X. If you just require the scan data we can provide it in the optimum format for your requirements.

The scan is used as a reference to create a detailed and accurate CAD model, but the CAD output is only as good as the initial data acquired in the scanning stage. SCAN HD’s processes ensure that the bridge between scan and CAD is as seamless as possible maintaining detail and accuracy.
