3D Scanning And The Medical and Veterinarian Sectors
3D scanning has become extremely important in multiple sectors as it allows us to measure tools and parts, and quickly inspect them for defects and resolve them. 3D scanning makes it easier to obtain the dimensions and we also get an overview of the entire product in one scan. Especially the medical or veterinary sectors are already benefiting from this technique and this time we have the opportunity to learn all about it thanks to professionals from the University of Murcia. Take a closer look!
