3D technology is advancing not only in the automotive and aviation sectors but also in the shipbuilding industry. We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with “Avangard Marine Group,” a shipbuilding and repair company based in KlaipÄ—da. They approached us to restore a ship’s propeller blade. For this project, we utilized the handheld Artec Leo scanner, which captures small details with high precision (up to 0.1 mm). We also leveraged the benefits of the long-range Artec Ray scanner, known for its accuracy of up to 0.7 mm, which is particularly valuable in reverse engineering. After scanning the ship’s propeller blade, we used reverse engineering techniques to recreate the object in digital and physical formats. Size (length x width x thickness): 2150 x 2000 x 700 mm
