DOES SCANNING DAMAGE OR DESTROY THE OBJECT BEING SCANNED?

Absolutely not, since laser class 2 is used with our 3D scanner, which has very low output power.

One of the methods used is known as Laser Scanning, which uses a laser beam. There is no physical contact with the sample object, and it does not damage the sample in any way. Laser Scanners create “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object.

For example, this is what a point cloud representation looks like:
