3D technology has a wide portfolio of applications. As well as uses in automotive and transportation industries, it contributes to aerospace and defense via its use in reverse engineering, quality inspection and prototyping amongst others. 3D scanning is useful in making a dummy part or prototype in the manufacturing industry, auto industry, or any other mechanical related industry. Quality control/quality inspection is the popular application and service in these industries.
3D scanning is being used in various applications (cultural heritage, quality control and others) and services (reverse engineering, inspection and others) in numerous industries. There are many potential applications that need real-time imaging and the ability to penetrate into it. 3D scanning is driven by the fact that it provides information with a three dimensional depth. 3D scanning is also adopted by the medical industry for surgical applications, diagnosis via MRI, CT scan and others. 3D scanning is also widely used in dentistry. With the potential of delivering three dimensional results and diverse-vertical application, the 3D scanning market is growing and it is expected to be adopted at a very high rate and by almost every industry in the near future. Growth in economy and infrastructure expansion is driving the 3D scanning market in various countries.
