3D modelling & Scanning
Merlinworks is an engineering and technology company with a strong working knowledge of 3D CAD packages, such as AutoDesk Inventor and Fusion 360. We are able to produce 3D models to support engineering projects either designing from scratch, or tailoring models specifically for 3D printing.
3D models can be used to present prototypes or final designs through rendered virtual models. We can also run basic simulations through Fusion 360, simulating structural and fluid dynamics. As well as creating 3D models within CAD, we have the capability to 3D scan objects using either a desktop scanner, utilising structured light technology, or by using photogrammetry by means of a DSLR or drone camera to capture larger objects and structures.
Hands-on problem solving
3D modelling and scanning allows almost anything to be digitised, allowing it to be readily reviewed and manipulated, ultimately allowing the problem being designed for to be better understood. The models can then be combined with the latest 3D printing technology to print scale models or working prototypes.
