Geomagic (Research Triangle Park, NC, USA) has announced a new agreement with 3D3 Solutions (Burnaby, BC, Canada), a developer of 3-D scanning and visualization technologies, as a reseller of the company’s 3-D scan data processing software.
3D3 Solutions develops 3-D white-light scanners with a field of view that can be adjusted to accommodate the scanning object, and components of the system can be upgraded to improve scanning performance. When used in conjunction with Geomagic software, users have the ability to edit, process, and optimize the 3-D scan data for use in downstream applications, supporting manufacturing, design, and analysis.
Scott Summit, an industrial designer at prosthetic limb creator Bespoke Innovations, says, “After Bespoke reviewed a wide range of scanners, we found that the 3D3 Solutions with Geomagic was the easiest to use, the most reliable, and the most forgiving of user error. We even enjoy that the scanner allows users to pick and change the camera and lens component as needed, which allowed us to modify and customize it to our needs.”
“Geomagic and 3D3 Solutions offer the complete functionality for users needing to get real world objects into usable 3-D,” adds Thomas Tong, president of 3D3 Solutions. “With a comprehensive range of easy-to-use tools to create accurate 3D polygons and surfaces from 3D scan data, plus parametric exchange tools, Geomagic integrates perfectly with our scanners and our customers’ needs.”
