3D Laser Scanning Kawasaki Ninja Gas Tank

This project was to perform a laser scan on a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle gas tank and re-surface the general geometry (reverse-engineering). The gas tank was braced onto a wooden frame for convenience, target stickers were placed across the tank, and the scan was completed at 2mm resolution (sufficient for this project). Below we have a screenshot showcasing the step-by-step process of how the scanned tank, from mesh format, is taken into NURBS modeling and reverse-engineered.

3D Laser Scanning Honda Ruckus

The objective of this scanning session was to scan various Honda Ruckus components and parts. The highly accurate scanned data would later be used for reverse-engineering and product development. The parts that were scanned ranged from exterior panels and surfaces, to engine and mechanical components, to frames and covers. By utilizing a portable 3D laser scanner, we were able to acquire the intricate edges and details on the mechanical parts as well as the mounting points and dimensional shapes.
