Need to scan the oil pan surface


Recommended Posts

Anybody know of a cheap place to get scans from? I'd like to design a dry sump pan and need the bottom of the engine scanned. I'm In Worcester...but willing to travel.

It's for this project...

Wrong engine (not for a 2ZZ-GE) and not a dry sump... thanks though.

Hi Julius,

Through work, I have used a company called FDM Digital, based in Burnley. Their core business is 3D printing, they use a blue laser scanner mounted on a FARO arm, for inspecting printed parts or reverse engineering. They can convert the surface scan data to a solid model, for use with CATIA. If you require a full size model or a negative pattern printing, then they could also assist. The scanner is portable, so they are not averse to visiting on site. Unfortunately I cannot give you an idea of cost, you said cheap, but I guess it depends on what you consider cheap.

Another potential company is NMS 3D UK, based near Chester, they offer a measurement service, CMM or scanning. They have portable systems, so can also visit on site.

Hope this helps.

Oh...very good! Thank you. I'll check both of them out.
