Raw Data File Formats

Any scanning project will produce a point cloud.  Point volume can range from 20,000 data points on smaller objects to several million on larger parts. These are very heavy files, and they require special software (such as Geomagic) to manipulate. Raw point data can be supplied as a stand-alone deliverable or (more often) alongside any of our other deliverables.

Making Polygonal Wraps
STL files are used industry wide for 3D printed prototypes, designing packaging around a part or assembly, and for taking precise surface area measurements. They are created directly from the raw scan data by creating a polygonal mesh from the scan points, and are typically very heavy files.
