Techniques such as using a 3D Laser Scanning or 3D CT Scanning are invaluable for the generation and validation of modeling and simulation models, and is an option to consider if 3D CAD data is not available or you need an “as-manufactured” model. Learn more about our Reverse Engineering Services, where accurate models for finite element analysis (FEA) or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) are created using our in-house industrial scanners. We can even mesh and provide a file formatted for any software. Simulations of microscopic time-varying events, particles and fluids, or other systems that are difficult to characterize using traditional methods can also be validated using 4D CT Scanning.
