LMI Technologies announced the official release of the next generation of its HDI Advance 3D scanning system at Siggraph 2013. This is the first HDI product launch since the acquisition of 3D3 Solutions earlier this year.
The new HDI Advance uses USB 3.0 cameras for both faster and simpler connectivity to a computer. The scanner also features new lenses that produce higher accuracy scans with less scan distortion compared to its predecessor, the company says. The sleeker mount design delivers better repeatability in scan results and offers more stability while scanning.
"The HDI Advance is a great 3D scanning solution for the computer graphics industry," said Terry Arden, CEO of LMI. "Our system provides great flexibility for scanning people and objects. Gaming, animation and movie studios have used the HDI Advance for 3D modeling and CGI in major motion pictures and top selling video games. The scanner generates high resolution digital 3D models accurately and quickly in color. With the release of the new generation of HDI Advance, we offer the best 3D scanning system in terms of speed, accuracy, and performance at an affordable price."
