A necessity for 3D scanning and printing has appeared when customer asked to make a replica of candlestick.
A candlestick, made from clay, was delivered by customer for us to 3D scan it accurately using industrial grade "Artec Eva" 3D scanner. A full and clean model was prepared for 3D printing by using mirror effect to have a different side of product to test design choice. Replica was printed on our large scale 3D printer using generic yet high quality PLA plastic which is very easy to print and have low cost compared to engineer grade materials.
3D scanning and printing tools are capable of recreating needed designs with mirror function. Very useful tools for parts when they are too expensive, impossible to find because they are no longer manufactured or there's no way to create perfect copy with ordinary tools.
3D printing material: PolyPlus PLA
3D printing technology: FDM (fused deposition modeling)
Product size (mm): 200 x 175 x 285
