How does it work?

Laser scanning is a non-destructive and non-contact technology that uses trigonometric triangulation to capture a 3D shape. The laser projects multiple dots at a known angle and captures its reflection with sensors. The sensor then creates and processes millions of points to create the object’s geometry.
