    If you only want to recreate an existing thing, 3D scanning can be a faster and easier way to develop a 3D model for 3D printing. Once you have your 3D model, you can make changes to it and use it as a starting point for your project.
    This scanning technology is being used extensively in the medical field. It’s also assisting in the creation of custom prosthetics for patients using 3D scans. 3D scans are already widely used in the dental industry, for example, to monitor, simulate, and even construct dental products such as braces, implants, and dentures. The use of 3D scanning and 3D printing is ideal for avoiding all of the drawbacks of molds and the entire process of manufacturing them.
    But how does 3D scanning work in quality control in the manufacturing industry? Or how to use 3D scans in the quality inspection?

    3D scanning is used by manufacturers to speed up their quality control operations. That’s because machines are faster than people in comparing data and performing quick quality checks on end goods.

    Non-contact, highly exact 3D profile measurements are possible using 3D scanners. They have automation tools for complex setups, allowing for consistent measurements between operators.

    Industrial quality control procedures require handheld 3D scanning devices. These technologies can capture an object’s geometry and convert it into data in the form of a triangular mesh or a point cloud.

    3D scanners are less arduous and more adaptable than traditional metrology equipment since they are quick, accurate, and record large volumes of geometry.

    Quality control can be greatly improved by automated 3D scanning using a robotic arm. It takes data quickly and is adaptable. It can simply execute quality control inspections on conveyor belts, for example.
