3-D Scanning and Modeling of Electric Vehicle

Video Information

GKS scanning engineers scanned the entire Sunrise electric car body, chassis, and components (rather than an assembly) to create a viable CAD model. Since the car didn’t exist as an assembly, GKS could not create a reference scan from which the modelers could create the parts as perfectly matched components. However, they could use the available parts to create a smooth, symmetrical model and remove the handmade errors so everything could fit together correctly. Some items, such as the doors, would be mirrored to ensure symmetry. Having a CAD model would enable the MIT design team to create their desired changes quickly.
