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.

“We had a very good experience with Merlin Works when we called them in to carry out roof inspections for renovation works required on a legacy steel sheet roofing on an industrial 4000 square foot building. It highlighted areas requiring new roof and ridge sheets where physical inspection from mobile platforms was difficult because of access. We felt that Merlin Works made a real effort to help us find the problem areas and enable us to carry out remedial works effectively. We would not hesitate to call them in again. '
