3D scanning, on the other hand, is the process of using a device to capture the shape and dimensions of an object in three dimensions. In the foundry and die industry, 3D scanning is used to create digital models of existing parts or moulds, which can then be used to create new moulds or patterns. This can be useful when working with complex geometries or parts that are no longer in production.
These ever-evolving 3D printing and 3D scanning technologies help significantly improve the efficiency and accuracy of the foundry and die industry. By using these tools, we create better-quality parts.
