WYSIWYG 3D helps aerospace companies ensure stringent dimensional specifications for cast and machined parts, aircraft bodies or model cockpit areas for avionics design purposes.

Traditionally, turbine blades have been measured with a contact probing system. Our laser scanning can measure blade profiles quickly and accurately and extract standard airfoil measurements such as Leading and Trailing Edge Radii, Camber Line, Chord Length among others.

WYSIWYG 3D systems help aerospace companies to:

  • Increase better outcomes for manufacturing processes
  • Reduce shipping defects
  • Rapidly conduct first-article inspection
  • Quickly troubleshoot fit problems

ART – There are many different reasons for scanning 3D objects. Art conservators, model makers, foundries, prosthetics designers, anthropometricists, animators, archaeologists, medical artists and sculptors are all interested in these services.
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

Sculpture – Replicate the artist’s work exactly, or perhaps offer the artist and foundries more options for either scaling the original up or down

Archival – 3D scanning is useful in archeaeology, paleontology and cultural heritage applications providing a digital archival record. Perfect for producing replicas for public exhibits.

Mixed media artists – combine technology and traditional media to creating 3D rapid prototype reproductions, play the traditional against the cyber-sculpture, resulting in an energy and tension not possible with a single sculpture

Whether you’re starting from a clay model or needing an animated model to match your existing object, Lidar and Cyber Scanning for the animation industry can help bring physical forms into the digital realm and optimise work time by using the fastest path to cad from raw polygon data.

CULTURAL HERITAGE – WYSIWYG 3D scanning technology presents a fantastic opportunity to create digital copies of real world objects safely and accurately without running any risk of damaging the integrity of the cultural heritage.
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

Simply and quickly scan 3D objects, sculptures or even buildings into useful data. It will make available an accurate, detailed and easily stored, shared & measured 3D model for audiences worldwide.

Once scanned in you can clean up data, digitally restore, intelligently interpret damaged relics, smooth rough data and reduce overall data size. Perfect for producing replicas for public exhibits.

3D scanning is useful in archaeology, paleontology and cultural heritage applications providing a digital archival record. It allows us to better understand history and the heritage surrounding the object.

Scanning can include large objects such buildings such as Town Hall Sydney NSW or items as small as a heritage coin

ENTERTAINMENT – Animation requires realistic 3D models to create special effects that appear seamless in films and television. 3D scanning can provide the fastest way to create realistic looking models.
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

Head and body, cars and props can all be scanned into a file format suitable for animators to use.

Whether you’re starting from a clay model or needing an animated model to match your existing object, Lidar and Cyber Scanning for the animation industry can help bring physical forms into the digital realm and optimise work time by using the fastest path to cad from raw polygon data.

With portable laser scanning technology our engineers can come to your location, set up is quick, you won’t even know we’re there. Full body scans including detailed heads and faces can take as little as 5-10 minutes for each hero.

We understand that time is extremely important, hero’s/talent are busy often with very little time,

3D Scanning for animations or visualisations can also be used for presentations, advertising in print or on the web.

WYSIWYG 3D can also convert 3D scan data from a range of scanners into a NURBS format or polygon count suitable for animators to use.

FORENSICS – We work with investigation teams and legal experts with an emphasis on reconstruction and evidence mapping
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

If a crime scene needs to be is conserved 3D laser scan has proved to be an invaluable tool for “freezing” the scene. This investment enables measurement & validation of theories to be possible days, months or years after the scenes has been removed.

Laser scanning has also proved an invaluable advantage in autopsy, creating the possibility to measure virtually any tissue without contact (IE contaminating the evidence), compare wounds with the weapons to confirm a match, study the trajectory of bullets and much more…

•Crime scene
•Building collapse
•Autopsy
•Weapon- wound comparison
•Dental reconstruction

JEWELLERY – Relatively new to 3D laser scanning is the design of fine jewellery.

[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

Today’s jeweller’s are likely to be architects or industrial designers so that traditional methods of jewellery design is not an option, however with the latest in 3D laser scanning technology jeweller’s are now able to benefit from the advantages of 3d scanning. Time constraints and increased customer expectations are no exception when it comes to designing  jewellery

MANUFACTURING – 3D scanning creates an accurate computer model while minimising the time a tool is out of production.

[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

The 3D model generated can then be altered to make tool improvements. CNC machining programs to repair or make a new tool can then be generated.

3D scanning in toolmaking has shown to be faster and more cost effective than traditional processes.

If you need to repair, alter or make a new tool, 3D scanning can make the process faster and more accurate than traditional trial and error approaches.

Comparing finished manufactured parts and the tools that make them to the original 3D CAD model is a growing requirement. WYSIWYG 3D provides an independent 3D scanning service to compare real parts to CAD models.

With the complex shapes of current parts 3D scanning using lasers is an effective way of measuring the dimensional accuracy of a part.

WYSIWYG 3D has specialized software that compares 3D scan data to your original CAD file. 3D Laser Scanning can be done on-site during your pre-production trials to provide immediate feedback.

Inspection reports can be quickly generated showing what deviations there are from the correct geometry and where those deviations are. Reports can be graphical and produced as standard Word documents.

Inspection scanning can assist manufacturers in determining the best processing variables, such as temperature and cycle times, to make a part.

  • Kinematic studies
  • Ergonomic studies
  • Finite element analysis (FEA)
  • Design modifications
  • Machine/Tooling making and adjustments

MINING– Comparing finished manufactured parts and the tools that make them to the original 3D cad model is a growing requirement and ensures your part meets design specifications and tolerances.
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

Wysiwyg 3D provides an independent 3D Scanning Service to compare real parts to CAD models. Inspection Reports can be quickly generated showing what deviations there are from the correct geometry and where those deviations are. By 3D scanning or probing (depending on your needs) your component or object Wysiwyg 3D can capture a comprehensive set of data for comparison. A comprehensive report with full colour deviation map comparing the reference to the As Built part can provide you with accurate details of where the part is not meeting specifications and by how much (up to 0.01mm).

If you need to repair, alter or make a new part 3D scanning can make the process faster and more accurate than traditional trial and error approaches. 3D scanning an existing part creates an accurate computer model while minimising the time the machine is out of production

Now available as a fully interactive pdf report you can share your inspections with clients.
