3D scanning or laser scanning is like as the 2D scanning, like 2D, 3D scanner got image of a object them twist it as a 3D photo. This is simple but the photos will not be 2D it will 3D photos by 3D scanner. Most of the outstanding video games for computer are largely use 3D scanning system, the environment and objects of the games built in 3D scanner and converted as 3D objects though when you play the game you will think you are on the game and you will feel every situation of the game. That is the specialty of 3D games.
Nowadays, the use of 3D scanner is not limited only in games, this is using for a large purposes. Most of the modern movies are now using special effects of 3D scanning. The main uses of 3D scanning are surface modeling, reverse engineering and also in industrial designs. There many companies who produce 3D scanners but all of them have different technology and for this reason prices vary. If you want to make any object to digital format you have to be very keen to use the photogrammetry.
When people used the 2D surface modeling, it could not be possible calculating its depth and any other dimensions correctly, this is the reason for coming up 3D surface modeling and now people can see pictures and able to correct the dimensions. The pictures become smaller than the real object but get a perfect realistic shape than 2D modeling. Even small elements and dimensions can be observed by you if you want so. This is the main feature of 3D scanning or laser scanning.
Reverse engineering is one of the best features of 3D scanning and the process to work with 3D scanning is known as reverse engineering. By reverse engineering you can easily redesign the old machines and know how it was worked before.
Then it will be easy to rebuild the machines with the design by an expert. Laser scanning is used for frame the design and then reveals the working system in the 3D virtual world. Most of the leading companies now use this technology but every time the result will not be correct and for this you have to understand the whole process before start.
The main product by using 3D scanning is 3D animated movies or cartoons and they are popular too. Making 3D animations with this is not so hard, but for that first you have to determine purposes of your animation. Every thing you can do with the 3D virtual world and even you can’t believe that can be happening. 3D scanning, reverse engineering and surface modeling have changed the usual definitions of digital photograph and maps. You can get the 100% perfect and effective with many features maps with the use of those, and if the progress going on you can’t imagine the result of those after a few years.
