Scan To Quality Reporting with Functional 3D

05/18/2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Measurement is the first step in quality control, the foundation of improvement and critical to Customer satisfaction. How can 3D scanning technology improve your quality reporting?

3D offers very real benefits to small and medium-sized manufacturers in a variety of areas. Polaris MEP has teamed up with 3D scanning specialist Christopher Wilczewski for a series of fast-paced webinars about the applications of 3D scanning in manufacturing.

This second “episode” in our Spring 2022 series focuses on the potential benefits of 3D scanning as it relates to quality. Attendees will learn how 3D scans could improve the quality reports provided to customers, increasing satisfaction.

The technology also can be used to confirm that the parts you receive from your suppliers meet your expectations – or even modify them to fit your needs. For example, are you struggling with a plastic part and can’t figure out why? A 3D scan could help you spot deformations AND the data can be used to modify molds to produce the correct shape.


1)         Overview of the advantages of 3D scanning for measurement vs. manual quality

2)         Best practices / lessons learned for leveraging 3D scans to improve quality reporting and/or automating GD&T reports

3)         Insights on how the technology can be used to improve quality of parts received from suppliers

4)         Manufacturer Mini-Success Story


  • Owners, Founders, senior executives of RI manufacturing companies
  • Engineering, Quality leads


Christopher Wilczewski is the Founder and CEO of Functional 3D, a 3D scanning service and consulting company based in Providence, RI.   The focus of Functional 3D is to bring the value of 3D capture technology without the large upfront costs and time associated with integrating this kind of technology.  Industries supported include commercial construction, manufacturing, design and historical preservation with projects as small as a Revolutionary War era flint to as large as a 17-story building in New York City.

Prior to starting his own firm, Christopher was an engineer and account manager at FARO Technologies, one of the leading manufacturers of 3D capture technologies.  There he had the opportunity to learn and develop workflows in various fields and organizations across the US igniting his passion for the technology.

Christopher is a member of DesignXRI and the Rhode Island Manufacturing Association.
