Geomagic® and Nikon Metrology announced a cooperative agreement that enables Nikon Metrology to integrate and offer its entire range of handheld 3D laser scanners with Geomagic Studio®, Geomagic Qualify™, and Geomagic Wrap®.
This partnership lets you seamlessly collect scan data directly from Nikon scanners into Geomagic Studio software for processing 3D polygon, surface and parametric models for reverse engineering, product design, rapid prototyping and analysis. Similarly, scan data is immediately passed to Geomagic Qualify to graphically and rapidly compare as-built parts with digital reference models for first-article inspection, production inspection and supplier quality management.
As a plug-in to Geomagic, the Nikon Metrology API manages point cloud acquisition by controlling all interaction between the new generation digital ModelMaker laser scanners and handheld localizer of choice. Highly accurate and reliable, it delivers control tools for the laser scanner, including scanner parameter modification or running of qualification routines. The resulting point cloud data is fed directly into Geomagic in real time, ready for processing into usable 3D data and models.
