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 Trucks||Ambulances||Restorations||Food Trucks||Conversion Vans|
|Rock Crawlers||Police Cars||Hot Rods||Service Vehicles||Camper|
|Monster Trucks||Military Vehicles||Interiors||Tool Boxes||RVs|
|Roll Cages||Fire Trucks||Fiberglass Bodies||Bed Drawers|
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.
