3D Scanning made easy with the EinScan Pro HD 3D Scanner

Sometimes 3D scanning’s not as easy as it might initially seem, take for instance the below part. This was handed to Cammpro recently. The customer required the part to be 3D scanned, and the 3D file generated at an accuracy 0.05mm. The dimensions of this part were 260mm in length x 20mm Diameter. The first challenging surface to 3D scan is the spiral feature, as...

3D Scan and 3D Print heavy duty jigs

The team at Cammpro needed to invest in a new heavy-duty jig to assist with their SLS 3D printing. To remove and install the Nylon12 powder into and from the machine, a trolley with a jig lifts the stainless-steel chamber, which carries 35KG of material. To assist with the high demand of 3D printing another Jig is required. The old jig was manufactured from angle...
