3D digitizing or scanning converts objects into 3D files. This is precision measuring made possible through development of optical and digital technology. The full and exact format of a part can be captured, measured and transformed into a computer file for multiple uses. The challenge is to complete this operation quickly and accurately, regardless of the size, complexity and material of the object to be digitized.


  • Archive the geometry of a rare and unique object (heritage preservation).

  • Reproduce a model using additive manufacturing technologies.

  • Proceed with a reverse engineering phase.

  • Complete dimensional and/or shape control.

3D digitization is part of the product development sequence:

  • Either upstream, based on an existing product or a design mock-up to integrate it within the design process.

  • Or downstream, during dimensional control.
