3DScanCo (a division of Laser Design, Inc.) announced that it is now reselling Artec™, Creaform, and 3Shape 3D scanners. The addition of these low-cost lines of 3D scanners makes the company a leading reseller of quality economy and portable 3D scanning systems.
The Artec 3D Scanners use 3D video cameras that capture a three-dimensional image in each frame and then combine them automatically into a single mesh. The scanning process is as easy as walking around the object while continuously “videoing” it from 360 degrees. The video-based scanners’ measuring speed is 500,000 points per second. They can be used to scan moving objects as well as stationary ones. Various models allow digitizing of a broad range of object sizes, textures, and colors. These highly portable scanners can be used in your own lab, onsite at clients’ locations, or even outside. This type of scanner suits motion capture applications in sports, animation, fashion, medical, and computer graphics.
Creaform 3D scanners are low-cost, high-accuracy portable systems designed to scan medium to large objects. When portability is important, these systems lend themselves to a wide range of applications in virtually any location. They are especially well suited to reverse engineering applications of large products and models.
Automatic desktop scanning for small objects is the forte of the 3Shape scanners. Used mainly in the dental, hearing aid, and jewelry industries, the systems capture precise three-dimensional data quickly and easily for items up to 3 cubic inches. The automatic setup speeds production of complex parts at an economical cost.
