Are 3D Scanners Accurate?

Written by 

3D scanning in manufacturing for quality control, design, and additive manufacturing is constantly developing and changing. Understanding how to make the most of your 3D measurement technology will help your business in the future. Read on to learn about 3D scanners in manufacturing in 2023. 


Are 3D Scanners Accurate? 3d scanner atos 5 plastic components

3D scanners can be accurate, but it depends on several factors such as the type of scanner, its resolution, the quality of the equipment, and the scanning environment.

For example, structured light scanners, which use a projector to project a pattern of light onto an object, can provide accuracy up to 0.05 mm, while laser scanners can provide accuracy up to 0.01 mm. However, accuracy may decrease when scanning objects with complex geometries, shiny or reflective surfaces, or objects with varying material properties.

Moreover, factors such as temperature, humidity, and lighting can affect the accuracy of a 3D scanner. Therefore, it's essential to ensure that the scanning environment is suitable for the scanner's specifications to obtain the most accurate results.

Overall, 3D scanners can be accurate, but the level of accuracy depends on various factors, and it's crucial to understand the scanner's limitations and specifications to achieve the best results.

See the catalog of ATOS and ZEISS accurate 3D scanners, which have been relied up on by industry leaders for years and years.
