i have been experimenting with a structured light scanner based on Flexscan3D in the past for scanning automotive components such as engine blocks and transmissions.
We design custom Alternator and Hydraulic pump sets for Diesel engines.
The scans are useful in general but do not allow designing bolt on brackets with whole tolerances around 0.2mm, i would always have to design a bracket have it laser cut in thin sheetmetal and check the fit, this is especially true when the bracket goes around a corner.
I guess its due to my scanner setup, notice a lot of Volumetric distortion.
I am now looking for either buying a used Creaform 700 or an Artec Eva scanner and hope to find someone with hands on experience with either of those scanners in here.
I downloaded sample files of the Artec Eva and analyzed them in Geomagic Design X, that already gave me a pretty good idea about Artecs ability.
What i notice here is that scanned holes are not clean enough to create a pattern and with that bracket out of it .
See attached image, (this is the flywheel end of a crankshaft).
My question here:
1) Would the Artec Eva scanner be able to create a cleaner scan of these holes if the operator payed attention to that detail?
2) Would the Creaform 700 create cleaner holes since it is laser based?
If anyone could share sample .obj files with me i would be very happy, i could not locate anything on the web....
