Capture complete 3D digital scans of any part to create point clouds or surface meshes. Use meshes as a 3D reference for building new CAD parts or make 3D prints in plastic, resin or metal.
Produce new CAD friendly models that can be opened and modified in your 3D CAD package. Use reverse engineered models to design new assemblies and create CNC toolpaths.
Welcome to Global Inspection Solutions
Global Inspection Solutions offers 3D scanning and inspection services to help you work with your parts in the digital world. We use a custom built, automated white-light scanner to quickly capture your components in 3D with exceptional detail. The process is completely non-contact, and safe for soft and delicate items. Our unique process also allows us to capture photographic surface texture during the scan and apply it to the 3D surface, for photorealistic 3D models that can be used in digital 3D art and animation.
We are always applying the latest cutting edge 3D technology, to capture and use 3D information in new ways. Contact us with your unique application and see how we can help.
Automated Part Scanning
Our automated scanning machine can quickly capture any part up to 24"x24"x10" with error less than 0.020mm (0.0007in). Typical scan resolution is 0.25mm (.010") between points but we have successfully captured as small as .020mm (.0007") between points.
We also offer onsite scanning services to perform scans at your location. We can accomodate anything up to 2m (80") in a single scan, and we can stitch together multiple scans for larger items. Typical scan resolution at this scale is 1mm (.040 in) between points, although we can make adjustments to fit your needs.
