Unver, Ertu, Atkinson, Paul and Tancock, Dave (2006) Applying 3D scanning and modeling in transport design education. Journal of Computer-Aided Design and Applications, 3 (1-4). pp. 41-48. ISSN 1686-4360

Advanced 3D Laser Scanning processes have developed over the last decade and are now
available and affordable for medium to large companies as well as education. This study examines
the overall efficiency of the 3D scanning process and potential value for use in design education.
The potential effectiveness of the 3D laser technology for education is also assessed with live
This article explores a reverse engineering approach for product form design. Three-dimensional
models of design concepts are created in clay, and data points on the surface of the model are then
measured using a non-contact 3D scan device. The resulting data is then imported into an
appropriate CAD design package for further design development.
