Laser projection technologies

See how the laser projection technologies in TruLaser software can help you project CAD data, manufacture assembly steps, group and sort objects, replace templates, and more.

Laser projection applications

  • Grouping and quality assurance

    Measure, sort, and group components. Use 3D laser projection for manual measurement processes. (video: 2:07 min.)

  • Paint templates

    Project paint masking schemes onto objects with laser projection, which can replace physical templates on large objects. (video: 1:24 min.)

  • Visual alignment

    Project 2D or 3D CAD data for visual laser manufacturing purposes, such as aligning parts during assembly. (video: 2:08 min.)

  • Reverse engineering

    Import existing laser data files for reverse engineering and eventual editing. (video: 1:31 min.)

Laser projection preparation

  • CAD input

    Using Inventor software's data translators, load multiple CAD formats for laser projection applications. (video: 52 sec.)

  • Laser data projection

    Use data from 2D image formats on planar data, or expand and project it onto a 3D object. (video: 2:26 min.)

  • Flicker management

    Optimize existing laser trace paths and your new designs to help reduce laser flicker. (video: 1:25 min.)

  • Use fewer lasers

    Cover large objects for paint masking or laser fabrication, even if you don’t have enough lasers. (video: 1:28 min.)

Laser simulation

  • Single grouping

    Project single groups of objects, one at a time, to help avoid mistakes during laser fabrication. (video: 1:04 min.)

  • Visualize the work area

    Digitally view the laser manufacturing work area with work cell simulation for more accurate information. (video: 1:12 min.)

  • Obstruction detection

    Pinpoint potential problems with projection angles or difficult shapes in your tooling. (video: 1:15 min.)

  • More accurate positioning

    Simulate various positions of the laser projection to determine the most accurate positioning. (video: 1:09 min.)
