Whether your prototype is a new idea or an addition to an existing product or machine, MODERN FORGE has the tools to make your ideas a reality. 3D Solid Modeling, 3D laser scanning technology, and 3D printing are just some of the high tech tools we have at our disposal. Creaform is the worldwide leader in hand held metrology grade scanning equipment. We utilize the Handyscan 700 along with Autodesk Inventor Professional 2018 for all of our prototyping and reverse engineering projects.
PROTOTYPING & REVERSE ENGINEERING SERVICES
Physical function and feature validation are key parts of the prototyping process. Once the customer has identified the feature set requirement and validated the 3D model, 3D printing a functional prototype is the next logical step. Examining a physical prototype is important, especially if ergonomics are concerned. 3D printed prototypes can be made in several different materials depending on the customer’s needs.
- Define key features
- 3D solid model proof-of-concept
- 3D printed simplified prototype
- Aesthetic/ergonomic validation
- Mechanical function integration to 3D model
- 3D model assembly/clash validation
- Photo-realistic renderings
- Presentation materials for investors
The HandySCAN 3D™ handheld scanners of the new generation have been optimized to meet the needs of product development and engineering professionals on the lookout for the most effective and reliable way to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects.
Creaform’s flagship metrology-grade scanners underwent a complete re-engineering, building on its core assets. They are now more portable and faster at delivering accurate and high resolution 3D scans while remaining overly simple to use. Yet, it is their true portability that has changed the rules and set a whole new trend in the 3D scanning market.
