3D Scanning Services
With over 15 years of experience in 3D SCANNING SERVICES, Neomek utilizes the newest technologies providing the most accurate and highest resolution 3D
scan data in the industry. 3D scanning allows us to digitize virtually any physical object from cell phone components to entire aircraft.
In addition to 3D scanning, Neomek specializes in reverse engineering and 3D part inspection. Whether you need to remanufacture obsolete parts,
design aftermarket components, or troubleshoot part geometry, Neomek can help. You can send your parts to us, or we can come to you and scan onsite.

What is 3D Scanning?
3D scanning is the process of capturing the shape a real-world, physical 3D object or environment. The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models.
3D scanning is ideal for measuring complex geometry. Unlike conventional measurement techniques, 3D scanning captures dense measurement data across entire surfaces. A high-end 3D scanner captures millions of xyz measurement points with an accuracy of 0.001" or better. High-end, hemispherical scanners, such as the Surphaser, can measure large objects with an accuracy of 0.01" or better.
Due to the nature of 3D scan data, it is ideal for reverse engineering and dimensional inspection of complex geometry, such as castings, airfoils, formed sheet metal, human anatomy, etc. 3D scanning is the ideal tool for product development and inspection departments who have a need to measure complex or organic shapes.
3D Scanning File Formats
Depending on the nature of your project, we can deliver the 3D scan data in a number of file format. Here is a description of each file format.
Feature Based Models
Feature based models are generated using Geomagic DeisgnX parametric reverse engineering software. The result is an idealized 3D CAD model that is generated using sketches, extrudes, fillets, lofts, and other CAD techniques. Feature based models can be delivered in both neutral file format and native CAD formats.
Auto-surfaced models are generated by "shrink-wrapping" 3D scan data with CAD surfaces. The result is a 3D model that contains many freeform surface patches. Auto-surfaced models are most commonly used when there is a need to bring an organic shaped object into CAD or CNC software.
Hybrid models are generated using a combination of feature based modeling and auto-surface modeling. The result is a 3D model where organic features are freeform surface patches and prismatic features are cylinders, planes, etc. Hybrid models are commonly used when an object contains both organic and mechanical features, such as an action figure toy or a machined casting. Hybrid models are also useful when an engineer needs to see the entire envelope of a scanned part in his CAD software, but only requires prismatic features where the part mates to adjacent parts.
Polygon models are generated by meshing the raw 3D scan data. The result is a model containing thousands or millions of triangular faces. Polygon models are commonly used for rapid prototyping, 3D rendering, and 3D animation.
Creating a CAD Model from 3D Scan Data
Neomek utilizes Geomagic Design X for most of our reverse engineering projects.
Here is a video showing the basic process of creating a 3D CAD model from 3D scan data.
The reverse engineered model made in this video can be exported to .stp or .x_b, or it the feature tree can be moved directly into
SolidWorks, NX, and a few other CAD software packages.
