ANCA BUCURESTEANU, DAN PRODAN, ADRIAN MOTOMANCEA EXECUTION OF PLASTIC PARTS USING 3D SCANNERS AND 3D PRINTERS In this paper, the authors show a part of research works performed on the use of 3D scanners and 3D printers to execute plastic parts with complex surfaces. 3D scanning allows copying of certain surfaces in our environment, based on existing models. Scanned models may represent various objects, made of a wide range of materials: metals, ceramics, fabrics, plastics, leather, organic materials etc. <1>. This paper shows the results achieved using a scanner and a common and affordable - low-price - printer. 3D scanners and printers allow execution of clones of certain parts with irregular surfaces.
Keywords: 3D scanners, 3D printer, parts manufactured from plastics using 3D scanners and printers
