Application of eviXscan 3D solutions in Loster Polska
Loster company specializes in designing and production of glasses and tuning elements for a wide range of motorcycles. The new components are designed by the company by use of the eviXscan 3D scanner which supports the production process.
Reverse engineering and rapid prototyping
Thanks to 3D scanning and implementation of the eviXscan 3D solutions, the company has gained a tool enabling it to constantly expand its offer with production of additional or missing equipment elements for motorcycles, such as covers, fairings or mudguards.
In the product development process, to provide quality conforming to the original part, it is necessary to recreate the geometry of the original parts. For this purpose, the shape of a motorcycle element which the customer wishes to modify or which misses a particular element is scanned.
Next, based on the 3D scan, a CAD model is created which is then modified according to the customer’s guidelines or as assumed by the Loster company designers. The prototype is made directly from the CAD file using a 3D printer, which significantly shortens the production process and lowers its cost. The 3D scanning process significantly optimizes the design and production stage, and the company’s models and products are always compatible with the base product.
The latest version of the eviXscan 3D Suite 2.0software enables scanning of dark-coloured objects without the need to put on the matting powder, which makes the work much easier, especially with new motorcycles. The owners not always allowed to put on powder on their brand new machine – after all, it is the apple of the owner’s eye. Now it is entirely problem-free. Additionally, the scans will put together on their own and you can move on to modelling the fairing in the CAD/RE software. – says Tomasz Obrochta – the owner of Loster Polska company.
Loster is the only company in Poland using the eviXscan 3D scanner for reconstruction of fairings which are no longer available on the market. The company also specializes in implementation of individual projects of the most demanding customers.
Application of the 3D scanning technology using the eviXscan 3D scanner significantly shortens the whole production process and improves its quality, furthermore, it increases the repeatability and enables easy editing of the prepared models.
Thanks to 3D scanning, Loster company has the opportunity to constantly expand its offer with production of new equipment elements for motorcycles.
