PrintToScan is working on a complete solution for all object shapes and wants to offer optimisation for the group of regular geometric components. For this purpose, all relevant object features are specifically scanned with a probe and transferred directly in their logical geometric form into the digital drawing. This saves valuable preparation time and additional data evaluation of up to 70% of the original measurement time. Since most industrially manufactured components have logical control geometries, PrintToScan can offer immense process acceleration in all CAM industries.
The approach consists of two parts. The first step is the technical development of the measurement method and prototype. The next step is to evaluate the prototype with pilot customers. Based on this, PrintToScan develops a preliminary version that is to be offered on the market.
PrintToScan aims to offer an alpha version of the product on the market after one year of EXIST funding. Based on the feedback received in a pilot phase, a release-to-manufacturing version of the product is to be published soon after the funding period.
Furthermore, PrintToScan wants to validate the international marketability of the product.
An affordable measurement system and an efficient measurement process will enable companies to realise projects that were previously uneconomical.
