NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
Creaform Launches the MaxSHOT 3D Optical Coordinate Measuring System
LÉVIS, Quebec -- New photogrammetry camera enhances Creaform technology product offering
Creaform, a provider of portable 3D optical measurement technologies, is proud to introduce the
latest addition to the wide range of technologies it develops and manufactures, the MaxSHOT 3D optical coordinate measuring system.
he MaxSHOT 3D adds the accuracy and speed of photogrammetry to the wide
range of applications already possible with Creaform technologies, most
especially when it comes to larger parts. It combines the MaxSHOT 3D
photogrammetric video camera and the VXshot processing software.
"We are excited about this new system, since it reflects perfectly our
commitment to high accuracy and reliability, says Creaform's president
Charles Mony. The MaxSHOT 3D system brings photogrammetry to a whole new
level in terms of affordability, ease of use and accessibility. With the
MaxSHOT 3D, we will indisputably strengthen our position and grow our market
share in metrology-grade technologies on the international basis."
Features and Benefits
As product director Jean-François Larue stresses out, "our main goal
was to come up with the most user-friendly photogrammetry software that ever
existed to support our MaxSHOT 3D optical coordinate measurement system. We
are extremely proud to present the metrology/ quality control community with
an innovative software that is very simple to operate. Featuring real-time
visualization and validation of acquired data and an entirely guided
step-by-step operation, it allows even those new to photogrammetry to
quickly and easily generate a high accuracy positioning model of an object."
In concrete terms, using the MaxSHOT 3D with a Handyscan 3D
self-positioning scanner, a MetraSCAN optical CMM 3D scanner or a HandyPROBE
arm-free CMM translates into shorter measuring time on larger parts,
accelerated positioning of the device around the part and higher measurement
accuracy, which ultimately leads to reduced production costs and increased
Creaform specializes in 3D portable optical measurement technologies and
