Exact Metrology Introduces Artec3D Scanners
Cincinnati, OH - August 3, 2009 - Exact Metrology, Inc. is pleased to introduce the addition of the new Artec3D Scanner to their metrology product offering. Artec3D Scanners require no mounts or markers, and are ideal for a variety of applications including computer graphics & animation, medical imaging, archival, prototyping and more. Complete systems including hardware, software and training start at under $15,000.
The Artec3D Scanners work just 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. The scanning process is extremely straightforward: simply walk around the object and scan it from various angles, while the accompanying 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 capturing both shape and surface texture of objects in a snap-shot or video mode.
"With a measuring speed of up to 1.5 million points per second and a price of under $15,000, the Artec3D Scanners are unlike any 3D scanner available on the market today," states Steve Young, Principal at Exact Metrology. "Their exceptional accuracy, high-speed performance and ability to digitize large, complex-shaped and moving objects open up new horizons for professionals across a wide range of industries."
