Escan 2nd Generation 3D Scanner with Five Times more power

3D Digital Corp. is a leader in 3D scanning technology. The company has pioneered a reverse-engineering solution that’s affordable and complete. 3D Digital Corp announces that its Escan product line has been expanded to include a new version of the existing product as well as an enhanced model that have Five times the speed and power

Both Escans will take advantage of a newer and faster USB circuitry, more on-board memory and faster processor. The new design will work faster with USB ports. Upgrades to the RealScan software will take advantage of this new speed and memory. It will also have full compatibility with the Windows 7 64-bit Operating system platform as well as many of the older Windows versions. So now, users will be able to run RealScan and their new Escan on faster computers.

3D Digital Corp has the experience and know-how to create a world-class 3D Scanner. The new product line will be shipping to customers world-wide in the coming weeks.

Escan comes in two configurations with 1 MP sensor. The standard configuration, while it appears similar in appearance to the first generation product. It can be ordered at the same price as the previous model, but is available as the Standard Base and Extended Base models. The Extended Base model performs well for larger objects, so it exists with an extended range. The Extended base and the standard version is shown in the photo below.

The Enhanced Escan model is designed with a higher resolution 2 MP sensor, higher quality lower distortion lens and also low speckle laser. An Enhanced Escan will also be available for both Standard Base and Extended base.  It is designed to provide more robust reverse engineering models with out breaking the bank.

Portable 3D Laser Scanner

Portable 3D Laser ScannerUsing a portable 3D laser scanner for one of many different applications in your industry is no longer a high cost burden. What was the case a few years ago certainly is not today when it comes to the prices that a 3D scanning device is going for at the present time. The doors have been opened to virtually any industry to have the ability to scan things in 3D and have a digital copy available on their computer that can be edited and added to. One great thing about being able to own a portable 3D laser scanner is that these devices can be taken home at night or locked somewhere safe since they are easily movable.

Our Optix Is A Portable 3D Laser Scanner You Can Trust

Being able to move the 3D scanning device around is also a big plus since you can now visit your client’s location when a three dimensional digital scan is needed. Thanks to portable 3D laser scanner technology many industries are doing things they’ve never done before. In the automotive world, for instance, it is now much easier for your local classic muscle car restoration shop to utilize the power of a portable 3D scanner to create models for broken parts. These 3d scanners can either be sent to the fabrication plant or fabricated in house if the shop is equipped to do so. The benefits of a portable 3D laser scanner from 3D Digital Corp extends to both small businesses and educational purposes as well.

Many universities around the world rely on the Optix from 3D Digital Corp to perform many teaching methods that equip students with the needed skills to be an excellent worker in their chosen career. Beyond education the 3D scanning devices are being used in real world applications such as crucial medical procedures and aerospace functions. Try 3D Digital’s portable laser scanners today!

3D Scanners: 6 Things You Probably Didn’t Know

3d-scanners6: 3d scanners have been used in video games for years. This is done to more capture motion better for more realistic models and playing. Motion capture in sports games is one of the most common uses of 3d scanners in video games.

5: 3d scanners assisted in the renovation of several important historical statues in Italy. A team from Stanford scanned Michaelangelo’s statues, and the data gleaned was extremely important in these statues renovations. The David was the most notable statue scanned.

4: It is much easier to scan a real world object than to build the model from scratch. Making a model more lifelike without data to compare it to is extremely difficult. A 3d scanner can make this process go much faster.

3: There are several different forms of 3d scanners. Some use triangulation, others use lasers. All function in the same basic format though; by storing points along the surface of the object as data sets. The only thing that differs is how those data points are made.

2: 3d scanners make computer generated images much more real and lifelike. You have probably seen poorly done CGI, and this is probably due to the fact that these images were created from scratch. With data from real world objects, the 3d model looks much more lifelike. One of the most popular recent films that have used 3d scanners to create CGI is Avatar.

1: The average price of 3d scanners is decreasing, while the quality of the scanner itself is increasing. As this technology becomes more commonplace this trend will continue. Expect to see more affordable and sophisticated versions of the 3d scanner in the near future. As with any new technology, continued innovation will make it a part of lives more and more every day.
