3D Scanning Lasers

3D Scanning Lasers

Similar to laser radar, 3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of objects creating a point cloud of data from the surface of an object.  The primary differentiator between laser radar and 3D laser scanning is the distance from the target since in a 3D laser scanner the 3D scanning lasers are typically only a few inches from the object under investigation.   In other words, 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.  Typical 3D scanning lasers are short pulsed lasers because since the distance to the object is measured by looking at the roundtrip time-of-flight of each pulse, but frequency modulated single frequency fiber lasers can also be used for select applications.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the 3D scanning lasers we offer.
