My Fab academy experience at Fab Lab UTECFabricio Paredes Larroca
The best technology and fastest way for reverse engineering, this technique provides new alternatives to copy and improve existing models. In the market there currently are different and complex brands of 3D scanners. Its prices varies between 100 and hundred of thousands of dollars. We should choose the one with the greatest resolution.
The first scanner used was ATOS Core.
ATOS Core is the specialist for the three-dimensional measurement of small components up to 500 millimeters in size.
