Dynamic Equipment Company (DEC) is a specialist engineering services company, working in the offshore and onshore oil industry. Based in Aberdeen, the company offers bespoke mechanical handling solutions, such as cranes and lifting equipment, to clients across the world.
DEC has long been at the forefront of technology in its industry. With a focus on accuracy, DEC first used solid modelling packages to replicate client installations, which gave a high degree of flexibility for developing new products and bespoke solutions.
However, with the company moving into 3D surveying to measure client’s offshore and onshore drilling installations, DEC was capturing more data than ever before.
While the scanning offered a high degree of accuraCy, the process of translating that information into solid models was time consuming and expensive. Simply put, the 3D scanning equipment offered more data than could be easily processed using their current systems.
Using an orbital laser scanner, DEC’s experienced team continues to carry out the equipment site surveys but this information is now passed to OR3D who use Geomagic Design X to create highly accurate, 3D CAD models.
These computer generated, CAD models are more accurate, time efficient and effective than solid models, meaning that DEC’s engineering team can quickly get to work in designing a solution based on real world data.

OR3D invest in long range 3D scanning solution
OR3D are pleased to add the Reigl VZ400i to their fleet of 3D laser scanners. Its performance allows increases in data capture times per setup, and has ability to record objects over 800m away. This instrument has provided a step change in reducing c...
As is: A model made to be very accurate to the scan data, including all it’s imperfections existing on the real component.
Design intent: A model that has been reverse engineered from scan data to what is believed to be the original design.
