Digitizing is the method employed to digitally represent 2D and 3D shapes and objects. This is typically accomplished through the use of a laser scanning system, a white light scanning system, or a number of contact scanning systems such as a scanning CMM, an articulating arm with a hard-probe or a digital contour tracer with a stylus. The data can be recorded and/or converted in terms of points, conventional curves, splines, surfaces and solid models. This data is often used to define or analyze complex geometry such as vane and blade profiles and can also play a key role in comprehensive and sophisticated reverse engineering processes.
Q-PLUS has vast and varied digitizing and scanning capabilities with accuracies smaller than .0001 and XYZ coordinate data collection at rates beyond thousands of points per second.
