A 3D scan model is a 3D digital representation of a physical object. If you already have an object and you want it in a digital form then 3d scanning is the way to go.
Scanning takes physical objects and transform them into 3D digital CAD models.
The scan process gathers the dimensions (measurements) of the scanned object during the 3D scan and creates a digital CAD model that can then be used by you for many purposes. A 3D model is incredibly versatile from the standpoint that it may be improved, altered, corrected, resized and modified.
Scanned 3D models can be used for making an animation or visualization. They can be used to make design changes to make a new product. They can be used to perform dimensional and comparative analysis of an object, or even FEA and CFD analysis. They can be used for archival purposes; to accurately record the form of an object. Scans can be used by digitally repairing damage that has been done to an object which in turn can then be reproduced in its proper form using 3d printing or CNC milling technologies. Scanning can even record your face in intricate detail.
