Customized Prosthetics Using the EinScan 3D Scanners
In the world of 3D scanning and 3D printing, reverse engineering is the most commonly used application across multiple industries. Being able to 3D scan an object and create a customized product is an invaluable skill. 3D scanners allow for the capture of organic and inorganic shapes alike, making them the ideal tool for industries that would struggle with traditional CAD design methods. One such industry is prosthetics. While the functionality of a prosthetic limb is its most important feature, the fit and form of the prosthetic can be just as important for the patient. The comfort a well-fitting prosthetic provides can make a world of difference as does the [Read more…]
Building a Speaker Cart Using 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering
Background My daughter is in an activity called “Colorguard” and is applying to be a captain for next season.
