The Premier 3D Scanning Company

Access The Latest 3D Scanning Technology

Tangent Solutions is a mobile 3D scanning, design, and engineering service that helps companies in a wide range of industries get products to market faster, more precisely, and with less overhead required.

As the premier reverse engineering and 3D scanning company in the nation, we leverage the latest in 3D laser scanning technology with our 15 years of CAD design experience to help you bring your ideas to life.

Our Company Specializes In Structured Light

We enable the reverse engineering of any physical object to either provide you with raw data, assist in the development of your product in CAD software, or completely fabricate it into reality. Our unique process of scanning, rendering, designing is our design formula.

3D Design And Scanning Services

CAD Design

Hiring in-house designers and engineers can be expensive. Our engineering expertise means our CAD design services can keep your costs down by working with you on a project-by-project or retainer basis. 

Whether you need us to create an original CAD design or modify an existing project, we are here! We start by sitting down to uncover the full range of your engineering needs, including production, design, and functionality testing.

3D scan data can be delivered to your engineers and CAD designers in STL or OBJ format the same day we scan your item.

CAD data in the formats or file types you need. Common files include:

  • XT
  • STEP
  • IGS
  • SLDPRT
  • SLDASM

Model Rendering

Models are unbeatable for validation purposes. You can get fully functional 3D models by rendering your 3D point cloud data. This 3D rendering can then be edited, moved, and manipulated in CAD software or showcased purely for conceptual purposes. The 3D Rendering process transforms the data to become fully functional—cycled, flexed, etc. Rendering is not mandatory but is essential to collect precise data points like ID, OD, and other measurements, which is especially useful for CAD design services. A 3D model is a great way to show off a new product before it comes to market. If this is your plan for your scan, then a mesh file is perfect. Rendering data from 3D scanners can be a time-consuming process, but it will deliver the smoothest, most detailed model available.

3D Printing

When you need to hold your design project in your hands, Tangent Solutions’ 3D printing services can 3D-print your design within hours. We stock professional-grade 3D printing filament for various applications to form a physical model in stunning detail. 3D printing times vary depending on the quality that you need, and we will help you determine the most cost-effective solution for your project before beginning the 3D printing process.
