Design and development of a mouse using 3d scanning(faro arm)

Chanda, Arindam (2014) Design and development of a mouse using 3d scanning(faro arm). BTech thesis.



In this project the product that is considered for study and design using Faro Arm is Mouse. Different models would be taken and scanned using a Faro Arm. The scanned images will be drafted into CAD files and rendered to get tentative prototypes. The final product and prototype will be produced using RP concepts to get a clear and distinct image. Ergonomics data’s is considered for alterations and manipulation to get a new design. Different aesthetic data’s of different models are taken and integrated to get a new design. The product generated due to scanning will undergo solid freeform tessellation and slicing and then post furnishing will be done. Here a 3D scanner will be used for scanning. A 3D scanner is a device that analyzes a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (i.e. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital, three dimensional models. Many different technologies can be used to build these 3D scanning devices; each technology comes with its own limitations, advantages and costs. Many limitations in the kind of objects that can be digitized are still present, for example, optical technologies encounter many difficulties with shiny, mirroring or transparent objects collected 3D data is useful for a wide variety of applications. These devices are used extensively by the entertainment industry in the production of movies and video games. Other common applications of this technology include industrial design, orthotics and prosthetics, reverse engineering and prototyping, quality control/inspection and documentation of cultural artifacts. The purpose of a 3D scanner is usually to create a point cloud of geometric samples on the surface of the subject. These points can then be used to extrapolate the shape of the subject (a process called reconstruction). If color information is collected at each point, then the colors on the surface of the subject can also be determined
