The automaker's Vehicle Measurement Lab scans car bodies, interiors, and clay prototypes to support the design process. The resulting coordinate data is imported into a CAD system and converted into surfaces. Previous scanning devices-a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and a mechanical digitizer-captured relatively few coordinate locations, making the construction of surfaces very labor-intensive. By switching to a laser scanner, the lab now captures millions of x, y, z coordinates quickly, giving designers a thorough definition of an object's shape and making the job of constructing surfaces go much faster.
