Sept. 10, 2008 - PRLog -- Long time Rapid Prototyping professional Mike Durham has started a 3D Scanning Service Bureau called Absolute Geometries in the Austin Texas area that will specialize in Computer-aided Inspection for the Injection Molding, Casting, and RP industries but will also offer Reverse Engineering Services.

After extensive research, the company has selected the Faro Laser Scanarm V3 scanning and touch probe hardware system, and Rapidform XOS and XOV software.  Scanning services will be offered at Absolute Geometries facilities or at the customer’s site.

Because of Durham’s experience in Rapid Prototyping, the company will offer what they call “RP Equipment Optimization”.  Utilizing 3D Laser Scanning and Rapidform Verifier software, Absolute Geometries will scan the Rapid Prototype model and overlay the scan data with the original STL file.  The result is a 3D color interactive model showing the deviation between the model and the file.  Every surface of the part is measured, not just selected points as with a CMM.  “Our process will help to determine not only where the model might be out of tolerance, but also the reason why.  With simple measurements, it is difficult to determine the reason for the out of tolerance dimension.  With our process it will be easy to see if the problem is a localized issue such as curling, warp, or scanner calibration, or a more general problem such as beam compensation, shrink, or Z offset.”
says Durham.

Durham says that he intends to use the same principles of servicing the customer that he has used for his 20 year career in Rapid Prototyping.  “We intend to introduce the speed and affordability prominent in the Rapid Prototyping Industry to the 3D Scanning Industry”
