This article aims at discuss the use of 3D technologies in the manufacturing industry.
In particular, it explores how such technologies can benefit to traditional measurement, as well as to the surface modelling of products. The article provides an overview about 3D scanning technologies and reverse engineering software, focusing the attention towards the manner in which complicated and detailed elements can be digitally recorded in a rapid way, to provide a permanent acquisition of dimensions and forms. Furthermore, it will show how the data set produced through the use of a 3D scanner can be elaborated to create a 3D surface mesh.
In particular, this work will describe a real application case about how the use of 3D scanner integrated with computer aided design (CAD) skills can support manufacturers in building customized equipment for the sporting environment: carbon fiber shin guard for football players.
The article concludes that 3D scanners in the manufacturing industry facilitate the collection of highly accurate information in a very short time and allow to develop perfectly fitting, custom and highly performing equipment for sport.
