Exact Metrology, Inc. has added the Artec3D Scanner to its metrology product offering. Artec3D Scanners require no mounts or markers. They are suite to a variety of applications including computer graphics and animation, medical imaging, archival, and prototyping.
Complete systems including hardware, software, and training start at less than $15,000.
The Artec3D Scanners work like a regular video camera, but instead of a two-dimensional image, the result is a three-dimensional image captured at speeds of up to 15 surfaces per second. A user walks around the object and scan it from various angles while the software combines all the scanned images into one. The scanners are equipped with wide-field-of-view 3D and mega-pixel 2D sensors, and the technology allows capture of both shape and surface texture of objects in a snap-shot or video mode.
