Questions to Ask when selecting a 3D Scanning Services Provider!
So you’ve searched Google and received a bunch of quotes from the growing list of 3D Scanning providers, as with all service providers the prices could vary enormously so how do you choose a 3D scanning service provider, what’s the difference between us and them, isn’t is just 3d scan data and pushing a button!
Here’s a list of questions to ask your 3D Scanning provider.
- What file formats are available?
- Can they supply multiple res?
- What resolution are you proposing?
- Are you processing data in-house or somewhere overseas?
- What level of data security do you have?
- Do you re topo the raw data?
- What projects have you worked on?
- Accuracy of equipment proposed?
- Noise of equipment proposed?
- References and/or credits?
- Will you sign a Confidentiality Agreement or NDA.
If you’re still not sure we’d recommend asking for sample data.
3D Scanning is not all about pressing a button and represents only 1/3 of the actual job which means the post processing is the important part and can make the difference between a job being successful or costing invaluable time and money on rework!
