3D Scanning

CBM offers cutting edge reverse-engineering and 3D scanning services.

At CBM we are regularly asked to scan objects ranging from injection moulded components to bespoke amoxil antibiotic hand crafted sculptural forms and convert the data to solid 3D CAD.

Our 3D scanning technology platforms offer state-of-the-art reproduction detail, with mesh point spacing down to just 18 microns we can capture the most intricate details including colour and texture, and the portability of our systems allows scanning to be undertaken at your premises, if necessary.

Optical Scanning Devices

Artec EVA

The Artec EVA is our ultra portable scanning technology which effectively captures intricate details including colour and texture. With a scanning accuracy of up to 0.1mm and up to 0.5mm of resolution, this system is well suited to a wide range of industries including aerospace, automotive, medical, heritage preservation and many others.


COMET L3D 5M - Blue Light 3D Scanning

The blue light fringe projection technology of the Steinbichler Comet L3D offers a high performance solution and opens up new dimensions in efficient 3D data acquisition.
With a mesh point spacing of 18 microns the process delivers excellent data quality and highly accurate result. The Comet L3D 5M is also ideal for demanding applications in quality control and inspection.

Platinum FaroArm

The FARO ScanArm combines all of the advantages of the FaroArm with a hand held laser scanner and is the perfect contact/non-contact measurement system. Unlike other scanning systems, the ScanArm’s hard probe and the Laser Line Probe can digitize interchangeably without having to remove either component. Users can accurately measure prismatic features with the hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring larger volumes of data — all in one simple tool.

CBM’s 4ft platinum arm offers a single point accuracy of ±.013 mm.
