Learn About Our Company

Efficient Designs

With a team of design engineers that specialize in manufacturing, not only can we develop designs quickly, we consider the production time and profitability of your project.

Unmatched Accuracy

Our high-precision scanners have a 3D laser scanner resolution of up to 0.02mm. Scanning is ultra-fast, reliable, and there is no project too large or too small.

Same-day Service

Most projects can be scanned the day it arrives at our shop. 3D scan data can be delivered to your engineers and CAD designers in STL or OBJ in just one business day.

Rapid Prototyping

You’ll be able to analyze parts for manufacturing, validate fitment, and your project in reality. 3D printing is the fastest prototyping available and we specialize in rapid prototyping.

Reverse Engineer

Reverse engineering the scan data transforms the data to become fully functional and is essential to collect precise data, ID, OD, and other measurements.

File Formatting

CAD data in the formats or file types you need. Common files we can deliver but not limited to include: XT, STEP, IGES, SLDPRT, SLDASM along with mesh files STL and OBJ.

Affordable Projects

Hiring in-house engineers is expensive. Our engineering expertise keeps your costs down by working with you on project-by-project or retainer basis.

Data Analysis

We can take your existing CAD model and compare it to scan data in order to find discrepancies for quality control, insurance, and other dimensional analysis reports.

Our Team Assists You In Every Step Of Production

From scanning existing projects, creating 3D models from concept, to sourcing a manufacturer, we can assist in each production step. 

01

3D Scanner Experience

Our 3D scanning services utilize the latest in laser scanning equipment to scan your product and transform it into a physical 3D model with remarkable accuracy. Adding convenience, we can send a technician to your office, home, or job site, for a completely mobile 3D scan service.

02

Design Into 3D Models

Whether you need us to create an original CAD design or modify an existing, we can do it. We start by uncovering the full range of your engineering needs, including production, design, and functionality testing. Our CAD design engineers specialize in making efficient and profitable designs.

03

Manufacturing For Purpose

With a network of machine, laser cutting, injection molding, fiberglass, and other manufacturing professionals, we can create working prototypes to see your project in reality while also assisting getting it into production. Our in-house 3D printing capabilities also put working prototypes faster than traditional methods.

Our 3D scanning services utilize the latest in laser scanning equipment to scan your product and transform it into a physical 3D model with remarkable accuracy. Adding convenience, our system is completely mobile and fits in the overhead compartment. We can send a technician to your office or job site, for a completely mobile 3D scan serviceThere is no project size limitations. 

Not located in Orange County? As a leading provider of 3D scanner services, we serve customers both domestic and international. Simply ship your product to us, and we will scan, render, and enter it into CAD software the same day it arrives. Our quick turn-around times are what make Tangent Solutions the clear choice over the competition.

Blue light scanners can capture existing physical objects into a digital model by using point clouds for light detection and laser triangulation. Lasers are sent out to hit reflective targets that send the light back to the camera, creating multiple data points in the software. Whatever the project size, our blue light laser scanner can take precise measurements to render it digitally—even large objects like entire buildings!

The 3D scan data we generate creates a mesh of points that can be used for exact measurements. Our high-precision scanners have a 3D laser scanner resolution of up to 0.02mm, giving you an unparalleled quality of detail. This digital model can then be manipulated in CAD software such as Solidworks. We can provide you with any file type needed for CAD, including STL, OBJ, STEP, STP, IGES, and XT.

3D models are unbeatable for validation purposes and is a great way to show off a new product before it comes to market.  CAD files designed by our team can be edited, moved, and manipulated in any CAD software. The reverse engineering process transforms the scan data to become fully functional—cycled, flexed, etc. This process can be time consuming, but will deliver the most precise models.

For most projects, our team will 3D laser scan your project which requires us to position, target, calibrate, and scan. From there the scan data is cleaned up in the native software of un-needed data, as the lasers record everything they see, orientated on an XYZ plane, and converted to a mesh file, commonly STL. 

From there, scan data that is for mesh-only files are delivered. If your project is being converted into a CAD file, the reverse engineering process begins by redrawing the components utilizing planes, surfaces, and dimensions in the scan data. Our design engineers work in various softwares to create STEP, XT, IGES files and then can manipulate these files in accordance to your project goals.
