Determining the Accuracy of the DHBW Monocoque by FreeScan X5

A monocoque is a vehicle structure where the chassis is integral to the body. Every year the students of the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg (Baden-Wurttemberg Cooperative State University) take part in the "Student Formula" race with a custom-built racing car. Universities from all over Europe present the racing cars they developed and built for the race and are evaluated by a jury in categories such as speed, technology, safety, marketing and, design. The competition gives students a direct application for engineering solutions that can involve everything from mechanical engineering to aerodynamics and metrology.

Scanning with Digimetric Photogrammetry System and the FreeScan Handheld Laser 3D Scanner How to scan large objects with high accuracy


Tips for FreeScan-Scanning difficult areas

Scanning objects with deep grooves and crevices can be a challenge due to the difficulty of placing targets in the designated areas. As we know, the FreeScan uses the targets for guidance and vision so when the targets are not directly visible the FreeScan may have some difficulties in scanning. Please see the examples highlighted in orange below. Notice the grooves and the positioning of the targets.
