Published 13 March 2018

A 3D laser scanner is used in carrying out the process of 3D laser scanning. 3D laser scanning is a non-contact and non-destructive type of technology which is used to digitally capture the shape of physical objects using laser light. 3D laser scanners create point clouds of the data which is obtained from the surface of the object being scanned. The 3D scanning method helps to scan the exact size and shape of an object into the computer in the form of a digital 3-dimensional representation. 3D laser scanners are capable of measuring fine details and they capture free-form shapes. A 3D laser scanner generates highly accurate point clouds. The 3D laser scanning process is used mostly for measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries.
