Technology Trends


3D Scanning is the process of analyzing an object or environment to collect data about its shape and appearance and construct digital 3D models. A 3D scanner can be based on many different technologies, each with its own imitations, advantages, and costs.

The increased deployment of 5G is expected to increase the installation of "smart scanners" in manufacturing facilities. These scanners are always connected and can upload the data to a real-time database. This requires a fast internet connection, which can be attained with help of 5G technology.

The fifth generation of cellular technology is known as 5G. It is intended to boost wireless services' speed, cut down on latency, and increase flexibility. The theoretical top speed of 5G technology is 20 Gbps, compared with the 1 Gbps for 4G. Lower latency is another benefit of 5G, which can enhance the performance of corporate applications and other digital experiences. By offering clients connected experiences from the cloud, 5G raises the bar for connectivity. Cloud technologies are utilized by 5G networks, which are virtualized, and software driven.

Benefits of 3D Scanning:

  • Coverage: 3D scanners can collect and measure millions of data points on the surface of an object.
  • Speed: 3D scanning can quickly and automatically collect millions of data points at the speed of light.
  • Accuracy: 3D scanners provide a high degree of accuracy, which is only expected to improve, as the ability to collect more and better data points increases.
  • Cost: the price of 3D scanning is competitive with other dimensional measurement technologies, especially when factored toward time savings.


How is a 3D Scanning System used in the Automotive Industry?

Adoption of 3D Scanning

Due to the vehicle industry's rapid development, numerous brand manufacturers are vying for superiority. CNC processing, 3D printing, vacuum laminating, etc., have created a massive industrial chain. In India, the number of domestic cars is increasing, and buyers are becoming more conscious of the design, build, and aesthetics of cars. Automobile manufacturers are meticulously creating and designing more innovative, creative, comfortable, and convenient car models that can satisfy most consumers, which in turn increases the competitiveness of their products. In recent years, the car sector has used 3D scanning technologies.


Due to the rise in demand for extremely accurate 3D scanning, the market share for 3D scanning is anticipated to experience a noticeable development in the future. The ongoing 3D scanning technical improvements and the demand for enormous volumes of 3D data to be captured for modelling and analysis is anticipated to expand, which will further aid in the popularity for 3D scanning solutions.
