3D Scanning

TotalSim are experts in computational fluid dynamics, and CFD is at the core of our business. If you require scanning for CFD, then there's nobody better suited to help than us. TotalSim is exceptionally experienced in working with scanned surface data and has the knowledge required to capture your geometry accurately and efficiently.

TotalSim uses Creaform's 3D scanners to create a portable, fast and highly-accurate scanning solution for any of your simulation needs. These scanners offer:

Metrology-grade measurements
Accuracy of up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in), resolution of up to 0.050 mm (0.002 in), high repeatability and traceable certificate

Accuracy in real-life conditions
Regardless of environment conditions, part setup or user

No rigid setup required
Optical reflectors are used to create a reference system that is "locked" to the part itself, so users can move the object any way they want during scanning sessions (dynamic referencing). Changes in surrounding environment have no impact on data acquisition quality or accuracy.

The HandySCAN 3D scanner is a data acquisition system and its own positioning system. This means that no external tracking or positioning device is required. It uses triangulation to determine its relative position to the part in real time

Consistent and repeatable results across all work conditions or environments

On-demand user calibration
The scanner can be calibrated as often as necessary. Calibration takes about 2 minutes and guarantees optimal operation


Surface Preparation

Whether we're producing a scan for you, or you already have scan data for your product, TotalSim can begin the simulation process straight from your point cloud. TotalSim uses advanced surface creation and repair methods to ensure your surface representation is generated quickly and accurately.



Your surface data can then be used in our automated simulation meshing process. Our end-to-end reverse engineering solution is fast, accurate and affordable.
