- Collaboration Embeds Sense Software With Intel's New 3D Cameras
- 3DS Sense Scanning Software as Part of the Intel Software Development Kit
ROCK HILL, S.C. — 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today a collaboration with Intel Corporation (Nasdaq:INTC) to mainstream the adoption of 3D scanning and 3D printing. 3DS will make available its consumer Sense™ scanning, editing and 3D printing software applications for Intel-powered Ultrabook, 2 in 1, AIO and tablet devices equipped with the new Intel 3D camera during the second half of 2014. Additionally, 3DS plans to make its 3D scanning technology available to developers as part of Intel's SDK to make it significantly easier to implement advanced depth sensing capabilities to all kinds of applications.
"At Intel, we believe 3D scanning and printing is going to be a game changer for consumers, educators and makers," said Brian Krzanich, CEO, Intel Corporation. "We are thrilled that we can work with the leader in 3D printing to bring to life the 3D camera for people using Intel devices. This cutting-edge camera will make sure even the least technically sophisticated can capture, scan and print the world in high quality 3D."
"Intel's built-in 3D camera technology enables world-class scanning capabilities for creating 3D models directly from your tablet or computer," said Avi Reichental, President CEO, 3DS. "Our exclusive collaboration with Intel is at the heart of both companies' passionate commitment to democratize access from capture to print and make it easy, fun and satisfying for consumers to live their 3D lifestyle.
