The aim of this project is to verify the suitability of three-dimensional (3D) scanners with computer-aided systems as a new method of geometric feature inspection. Three-dimensional scanners are widely used for field recording and model reconstruction. However, at present, 3D scanning is rarely used in the field of inspection in the production process. This paper uses the Artec Leo 3D scanner as the basic equipment, randomly selects three different shapes of products for scanning, and then uses computer-aided software to optimize and feature the model. The analysis of the characteristics of the measurement data shows that the scanner has the potential to be used as an inspection tool in industrial production processes.
