The Comfort Lab offers a variety of scanning services. Through the use of a FARO arm with an HD laser, precise 3D polygonal models of full seats, seat components, or vehicle components can be generated.
With the accompanying PolyWorks software, the in-vehicle coordinate systems of the manufacturer can be recreated and objects such as seats, foam, and seat frames can be aligned with the manufacturer’s vehicle coordinate system to give a precise representation of the location of seat components within the vehicle.
The arm can also take a variety of physical measurements (H-points locations, distances, widths, angles) on, or relative to, the seats and export them as CAD files. These files can then be used by manufacturers for design and benchmarking purposes
