Other Scan and capture methods

Product Development Technologies in Chicago uses a Hymarc scanners to
reverse engineer parts. The real cool thing is that they verify the
integrity of the capture using their own proprietary system to produce
images that look like thermal temperature scans and shows the difference
between the 3D CAD model and the scanned part. In the end they can have
exact copies in CAD of the model. I can't see any better process and
verification for capturing complex geometries. Sure you might be quicker if
you are capturing a cube but if you have anything beyond that and you want
to duplicate that in CAD I see this as the way to go.

I deal with John and Joe there. They usually can push the schedule for me.

PS they have a pretty funky web site. www.pdt-cav.com
