I am currently working on a startup company that focuses on creating plastic and carbon fiber body parts for motorcycles. I would like to be able to take the exact dimensions of the OEM parts and translate them to Rhino so that I can use their mounting points, size constraints, etc. as a baseline to begin designing my parts. I have looked into 3D scanning which seems like a good option, but I have very limited knowledge in this area and I am not sure what requirements I should be looking for with my intended purposes in mind. A quick look at the rhino resources page and I found one ( http://www.nextengine.com/ ) that seems to fit the bill, but once again I am not sure exactly what I should be looking for. I am trying to keep my costs on this low so $3k is really the most I can put into a scanner right now. As far as volume, I would probably be doing a handful of scans per month and increasing frequency as the company grows. Bearing this in mind, does my 3D scanning plan sound feasible or would I be better off using a 3D scanning service? Or is there another technology that would be a better fit? Sorry for a long post and lack of specifics, I’m just trying to wrap my head around this. Any input is appreciated!
