Use cases and workflows
3D scanning can be used in a number of applications including part inspection, reverse engineering, digitizing, copying an object or simply just scanning to share. Below you find our guides to the different workflows and which of our 3D scanners that can be used.

By scanning and then exporting your model to your CAD or 3D inspection software, you can compare it or measure it to ensure that tolerances are met or that your model is an exact copy.Scan to inspect
Scan Dimension 3D scanners help jump-start your modeling by giving you accurately sized replica objects. Then, these can then be incorporated into your project, or used as a reference object. Choose the scanner that fits your need for accuracy.Scan to model
Reproducing an object can be time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone. The SOL and SOL PRO 3D scanners and software allows you to create a replica of objects easily. Using your preferred printing software, easily scale your scans up or down.Scan to print
In the past, sharing a 3D representation of something has been challenging. The Scan Dimension 3D scanners and software make it easy to share to Sketchfab with just one click.Scan to share
