Scanner Training - Day One

Today marked the first day of our 3D scanner training. Rob from Paperless Parts came down all the way from Nashua, NH fighting through the AM traffic to make it to our shop by 9 AM - a drive that took him 3 hours, so thanks go out to Rob for accommodating our schedule to make it here!

Once he arrived, we set up the last bit of software on the laptop that comes with the package, brought it and the scanner out to the vehicle prototyping lab and got right to work. First, we calibrated the scanner, then checked the scanner saturation levels to assure a quality scan. After scanning a few small parts, Dave and I went next door to Factory Five to get a Mustang 8.8 rear end used in the FFR kits so we could get an idea of what it will be like to scan larger, more complex assemblies.

Just as expected, scanning the rear axle is much faster than having to model the assembly by taking various measurements off of the axle, sitting down at the computer and drawing the parts, going back to the axle for more measurements etc. etc. It does take some time to get used to the scanner, and to capture enough of the finer details to later complete the model in the software package, but much easier than going through the measure, then draw process.

Here's a picture of me scanning the rear axle, which is instantly loaded into the computer. After our second day of training is complete, and the computer model has been finalized, I'll share some pictures of that process, but for now, this will have to do...sit tight!
