Challenge: Fast and Accurate Retrofit Designs

The car modification market provides custom parts and alterations for vehicles. There are many applications, including customized modifications for:

Trophy TrucksAmbulancesRestorationsFood Trucks Conversion Vans
Rock CrawlersPolice Cars Hot RodsService Vehicles Camper
Monster TrucksMilitary Vehicles InteriorsTool Boxes RVs
Roll CagesFire Trucks Fiberglass Bodies Bed Drawers
Skid PlatesExhausts
Light Bars

A common challenge is obtaining the measurements of an existing vehicle as a basis for a new design. If a 3D model is not available, the vehicle must be measured, typically by hand with tape measures, calipers, or even paper cutouts, which can be time consuming and can introduce dimensional errors. A fast, easy, and accurate measurement system would improve the process.

Solution: Mantis Vision F6 Scan to CAD

Using the Mantis Vision F6 professional 3D scanner to scan to cad will reduce the measurement time and eliminate measurement errors, resulting in a 3D model for SolidWorks and other CAD programs. The F6 Smart handheld 3D scanner can scan the exterior in minutes, and the F6 SR is optimized for tight spaces like car interiors. The resulting scan can be imported into CAD and used as the starting point for the modification design.
