White Light Scanning Overview
3D3 Solutions develops white light 3D scanners (also known as structured-light 3D scanners) that capture a digital 3D scan of a physical object in seconds.
White light 3D scanners offer the following advantages over laser scanners:
- Faster scan times
- Produce dense and accurate data
- Higher detail levels
- Takes the full view of the object with full field scanning
- Safe for people, even to the naked eye

3D Scanning Process
The 3D scanner directs a series of reference patterns onto an object. The light deflects onto the object’s surface. The scanner captures these images to calculate the object’s depth and surface information.
The 3D scanner’s triangulation engine processes the images to acquire the data needed to create a 3D model. Automated 3D capture drastically reduces the time and cost in capturing complex physical measurements.
