3D scanner is an accurate & fast method which is utilized to determine the shape of an entity’s surface & its volume in a 3D space. It used to capture 3D information of an object in existent time. It is a process where structured or laser light are used to capture the digital information relating to the shape of an object by transforming physical objects into digital models. The 3D digital model are used to perform comparative & dimensional analysis of a product which are used to make changes in designs to form a new product. It is classified as contact 3D scanner and non-contact 3D scanner. Contact 3D scanners require an object to be physically in contact with the scanner in order to probe & record its dimensions while non-contact 3D scanners use ultrasound waves, ultraviolet radiation, and radiation which reflects back from the surface of an object and is recorded by the scanner.
Based on offering, 3D scanner market is segmented into aftermarket services and hardware & software. Based on type, market is segmented into structured light 3D scanners and laser 3D scanners. Based on range, market is segmented into long range scanner, medium range scanner and short range scanner.
