We often write about complex projects that involve 3D scanning, 3D modeling, or 3D printing. However, small and simple projects can also be implemented quickly and efficiently with the help of 3D technologies. It is important to think about it in good time before you buy a new fridge when the fridge handle breaks.

This time we are sharing a very simple situation. Colleagues noticed a broken fridge handle in the kitchenette in the morning. Frequently you will think that it is difficult to find such a handle, it is no longer produced, and it is not convenient to open without a handle. Need to buy a new fridge? We say - certainly not.

We glued the broken handle to keep it in its original shape during 3D scanning. We've scanned the handle with an ultra-precise and fast "Artec Space Spider" 3D scanner capable of scanning at 0.05mm accuracy. We sculpted the scanned model with the company logo and did 3D printing. There was used a high-quality "Zortrax M200" 3D printer, which allowed us to continue to use the refrigerator comfortably already in the afternoon.

3D scanning and 3D printing are the perfect way to recover broken parts very quickly and easily.

At the customer's request, we performed a 3D scan of the car valve. For this request, we used "Artec 3D" high-resolution 3D scanner "Space Spider". This scanner is designed to scan objects which require a high level of precision and detail. As the object to be scanned was approximately 10 cm in height, this scanner met the customer's needs perfectly. The scanned model has an accuracy up to 0.05 mm.

3D scanning is an extremely fast and convenient way to make accurate measurements. Taking advantage of 3D scanners capabilities, we can scan this detail and prepare a fully complete STL computer model in just 30 minutes. Such a model has absolutely every possible dimension that can be measured by a computer at any time when needed. You will spend much more time measuring this part in the usual ways, there is also a chance of making mistakes or not measure something. That's why 3D scanning is a great solution.

There is no doubt that 3D scanning will be an integral part of all measurement processes in the near future. We are delighted that our clients are moving forward with 3D scanning capabilities and adapting it to their business.

For some people, a car is just a vehicle, but for others, it can be a way of life, a reflection of personality, or a way of expressing oneself. This is how almost every car enthusiast could describe himself. The desire to stand out from the gray mass of cars often leads to the need to improve not only the performance but also the appearance of the car.

This time we were approached by "Diveriks performance" to scan the body and trim of the BMW cars. For the realization of the request was used the highest speed and precision Artec Leo 3D scanner. This device scans with an accuracy of 0.1 mm, and the data acquisition process takes only 10-15 minutes.

The data collected during the scan were processed by the software, merged and cleaned of any noise. The client was provided with a neat STL file that can be used for a variety of purposes.

"Diveriks performance" used 3D scanned models to create custom car body kits. With the digital versions of the BMW E39 and E46, the developers have created custom trims using computer simulation software and prepared files for mold making. The finished products were made of fiberglass.

The benefits of 3D scanning in this manufacturing process are undeniable - digitizing the surface of complex geometry allows you to save time, avoid production errors, and optimize developers' work. We welcome clients who value their work and keep up with the latest technologies!

Jewelry is another area where innovative jewelers keep pace with the latest technology. It is no exception to this project by artist Lauryna Kiskyte. The main idea - move her own feet into jewelry. To fulfill this ambition, Lauryna needed extremely accurate 3D scanning and 3D printing of her feet.

We chose "Artec's" ultra-precise and fast 3D scanners for feet 3D scanning. The "Artec Eva" machine has made it possible to work with an accuracy of 0.1 mm. The scanned feet were reduced to a height of 10 cm and printed with  "Zortrax M200" 3D printer. We chose Z-HIPS white plastic for printing, which is suitable for printing mock-ups, prototypes, art products because it gives a very smooth and aesthetic surface.

Lauryna used the 3D printed feet to make gypsum molds, where she cast porcelain. The developer used porcelain castings in jewelry making. Some of these pieces of jewelry have been able to compete in the International Jewelry Competition in Japan! We are delighted with Lauryna's achievements, we wish her never lose creativity, and our team is always ready to help you realize all your creative ambitions.
