Medical Systems

Medical advances in fields such orthopedics, neurosurgery, and the development of prosthetics can lead to new diagnostic tools, devices, and components which depend on reverse engineering and/or rapid prototyping. Portable CMMs such as FARO’s measuring arm and scanners allow researchers to measure and scan a part quickly, compare to a CAD model, or check the accuracy of fit prior to use.

3D inspection, modeling, and simulation using the FaroArm and ScanArm fosters innovation in medicine by providing highly accurate data for use in research, product design and other clinical applications.

3D Scanning the Past at the Smithsonian

3D scanning is a rapidly advancing technology that maps real-world objects onto 3D computer models. The applications of 3D scanning are numerous, and 3D scanning is seeing increasing adoption for applications such as quality control and assurance. But today, we’re going to step outside the realm of manufacturing to discuss how 3D scanning is used in the world of GLAM: Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums.
