Fraunhofer IGD unveils autonomous 3D scanning system

The Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (Fraunhofer IGD) in Darmstadt, Germany, has developed an autonomous 3D scanner capable of scanning objects in real time without needing to be taught how to do so. The institute, which has recently been researching 3D design simulation software and ways to reduce the cost of metal additive manufacturing , combined 3D scanning with AI, 3D modeling, and 3D printing to produce a system capable of manufacturing components in batch sizes of one. How autonomous 3D scanning works The system’s hardware consists of a 3D scanner, a robotic arm, and a turntable. After […]
