The R&D lab houses a 3D printer and scanner, ideal for rapid prototyping and reverse engineering. Use the 3D printer to transform virtual objects into real-life models in multi-colour, at a high speed, and obtain a better feel for prototypes of virtual object to make real-life production decisions. Use the 3D scanner to create virtual 3D models from existing real-life objects, with the ability to quickly alter these objects in virtual space.
Use rapid prototyping and reverse engineering to print anything imaginable (with size constraints), and transform virtual objects into real models in multi-colour, at a high speed. Obtain a better feel for prototypes you have created in a virtual space virtually in order to make more economic decisions, and your project more efficient.
The 3D scanner can be utilized for a number of different purposes, most notably for rapid prototyping and reverse engineering. Create virtual 3D models from existing real-life objects. Have the ability to quickly alter these objects in virtual space, making your projects more efficient and effective.
