When the firetruck maneuvered into our office’s driveway, everyone wanted to take a look at this massive vehicle. The Team from Rosenbauer Group Karlsruhe coming to pay a visit to SHINING 3D on that day delivered an elaborate introduction to how firetrucks are tailored on demand, adapted to the specific requirements of the customers. The team came to the SHINING 3D EMEA headquarters to explore the capabilities of the EinScan Pro HD.
Goal: 3D scan vehicle parts and equipment to enhance the 3D design process
In the process of equipping a truck with the tools requested by the customer, Rosenbauer started to go fully digital to fit all of the equipment into the vehicle. The digital models of the requested products to be integrated in the truck are fitted into the virtual vehicle in Keyshot. This allows the Rosenbauer Team to react quickly to customer’s comments and change requirements in the customization journey. It also saved them a great deal of time to go fully digital. So far so good; there is just the issue that sometimes the original products drawings and model data are too complicated to obtain or simply not available. How can this issue be resolved in order to guarantee a smooth and seamless design of a custom firetruck?
Fast, reliable and authentic acquisition of object characteristics is handled at ease by the EinScan Pro HD Multifunctional Handheld 3D Scanner. With the assistance of the latest 3D scanning technology by SHINING 3D, Rosenbauer was able to fill the gap of missing product details. Let´s take a closer look at the workflow in detail:
Upon the arrival of the Rosenbauer Team, the EinScan Pro HD has been set up with a dedicated work station. Due to its versatile and flexible handling, creating a perfect setting for 3D scanning of different areas, tools and equipment of the firetruck only took a few minutes.
Less limitations while scanning dark objects and surfaces
The light weight of the EinScan Pro HD and the capacity to capture dark objects enabled a fast and uncomplicated acquisition of the driver’s cabin data with great results.
Fast scan speed for high efficiency
Processing and evaluation of scan data on site
Rosenbauer uses scan data to tailor products on clients request
By using the EinScan Pro HD to scan various parts of the firetruck, it is possible to obtain authentic and precise 3D data of the objects, which are perfectly suitable for rendering in Keyshot and thus are the perfect match for the application requirements of the Rosenbauer Team.
This project provides evidence that the EinScan Pro HD is the ideal companion to capture highly accurate 3D data of a multitude of different objects, empowering users to take the next step on their digital technology journey.
