If you are trying to compare multiple objects 

The human eye is limited in terms of how many comparisons it can make between two objects. There’s more to an object’s comparison than just the visual differences, stuff like texture, the composition is also important factors to consider. You can’t see these differences with your naked eye, but a 3D scanner sees them. A 3D scan can conclusively establish whether an object is authentic or a forgery.

If you are looking for fast design 

If you work in design, then you know just how exhausting designing a new product could be. In some instances, you have to create a design based on a pre-existing object, or reverse-engineer a product. If you use a 3D scanner, you don’t have to take actual measurements for your new design, which makes your work way easier. 3D laser scanners allow you to obtain high-definition images of your design with various data points that can be reviewed later. 

If you need meticulous quality control 

The little details are what might give your project an edge over your competitors. However, for your projects to meet the expected standard, you need meticulous and keen quality control. A 3D scanner is one way you can improve the diligence of your quality control.
