Hello Vincent... How ya doin?
Hey, this laser scanning isn't rocket science, or maybe it is?? After all, This is now being used more and more everywhere to reverse engineer obsolete parts like I have done here. BUT, on the other hand...Walmart employee's scan labels everyday...deep..or not?
Once I scan an object, I convert my scan into a solid and then smooth and correct defects with a cad program. Next, I make a tool path from the solid and onto the NC mill. Almost like magic, and everyone loves magic right?
Again, it's not rocket science. People that know me say a lot of things with my name used in a sentence, but never in my life time have I ever heard "rocket science and Jim G" used in the same sentence!!
The thing is to have a scanner and the programming.
