Benefits for 3D Scanning San Diego projects

File Creation

We have the ability to isolate essential data by 3D scanning. This speeds up file delivery and verifies you receive only what you need. In the reverse engineering process, CAD files area created for projects with manufacturing or cataloging purposes. Files are commonly delivering in STEP, XT, and IGES format.


3D scan data is cleaned up and post processed in order to create mesh files, STL and OBJ. During this process, holes can be filled in and erroneous data deleted without compromising the shape or structure of the original scan. All scan data must be post processed in order to deliver scan files as it must be exported from native software.


For projects requiring CAD files, we can reverse engineer scan data. This will also allow important data to be transferred by creating planes, sketches, and other volumetric shapes in post processing. Scan data accuracy is up to 0.02mm, validating that all scan data is to the upmost standard.


Previous scan data experience may have resulted in the slow down of software. Our team has the computing speed to handle any size projects, without compromising precision. With the knowledge to scan at a higher speed, we can record all size projects without compromising detail. Files can be isolated based on each component.

I have used several companies in the past, but I am so excited to work with Tangent Solutions. They've helped me develop some new product and have done an amazing job, great response, and help me work out some engineering problems that we were not able to fix.

Tangent Solutions was able to produce a far better scan then the #1 TOP scanning service for the Entertainment Industry at a much more reasonable price. Not only were they able to produce one of the best scans my 3D modeler had ever seen, they were able to do it quickly and easily.
Patrick Ecclesine
Provided 3D scans for aerospace casting straightening operations. Tangent provided best fit heat maps that align with our customers scans. Excellent support and prompt response. I have used this service several times in the last year. They are my first call for scanning services.
