It might sound unrealistic, but 3D scanning comes handy in vision systems used in distribution and shipping centers to sort and track packages. The scanning certifies the integrity of products before and after shipping. It is also used to increase packing density and creating support structures and casing.
Lidar scanning systems are some of the systems used in 3D scans to create offer precise digital copies of props, cars, aircraft and even buildings. There is just so much that can be enjoyed using the systems.
