LMI Technologies is pleased to announce the official launch of the HDI Advance R4x 3D scanner. Designed for industrial metrology customers who need a versatile measuring solution, the HDI Advance R4x is a high-precision scanner that quickly generates 3D models and offers unmatched flexibility for scanner setup.

The HDI Advance R4x's new industrial design and improved performance make it the ideal scanner for the industrial metrology market. Compared to the R3x, the R4x's accuracy has been increased by 20% with higher resolution cameras and projector.

Notable features include a highly stable carbon-fibre bar for mounting cameras (and DLSR) that allows customers to use the scanner over extended periods of time without the need for recalibration; the ability to set the cameras at fixed positions and angles and scan objects with various fields of view and measurement ranges using the same scanner; and a high end scanning engine (FlexScan3D) that automatically aligns scans, edits 3D models, exports the 3D models into various industry formats and automates the user's processing workflow through a powerful and easy-to-use scripting environment.

“With the HDI R4x we’ve delivered a more accurate and flexible scanner for industrial metrology applications like automotive and aerospace parts inspection, including wear and tear analysis for mechanical parts such as pumps and valves, and reverse engineering for CAD model reconstruction” said Chi Ho Ng, Director Product Management at LMI Technologies.

The release includes an update to the HDI's FlexScan3D software to version 3.3.5 to fully support the HDI Advance R4x higher resolution cameras and projector. Also, all Nikon models and Canon EOS Rebel Tx family DSLR cameras for color texture are now fully supported in FlexScan3D 3.3.5.

LMI Technologies Launches HDI 109 Advanced 3D Scanner

Written by

LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection technologies, announces the official release of the HDI 109 3D Scanner. It is the latest addition to the HDI 100 series of compact, pre-calibrated 3D scanners manufactured by LMI. The scanner has the ability to scan small parts at a high level of accuracy. The HDI 109 is an automatable turnkey solution that delivers a seamless 3D scanning experience from acquisition to post-processing of scans into a full digital 3D model.

With a solid aluminum body that is dust proof and water resistant (IP67 housing), the HDI 109 measures only 49 x 100 x 155 mm to become the smallest advanced 3D scanning system using blue LED projection technology. The scanner’s compact design and portability makes it suitable for fitting into confined spaces, perfect for integrating or embedding the scanner into machines or devices.

“HDI 109 3D Scanner was developed specifically for companies that are looking to design their own systems or devices and require integrated or embedded 3D scanning capability for scanning small parts”, said Chi Ho Ng, Product Group Manager of LMI Technologies. “By leaving the scanning to the HDI 109, companies can save valuable R&D development resources and budget so they can focus on their core developmental strengths instead of developing the 3D scanning technology internally. This substantially minimizes time-to-market so products can reach the market at a faster pace.”

The HDI 109 is ideal for systems integrators or device manufacturers who need 3D measurement, visualization or inspection of small parts for medical, dental, or manufacturing applications. The system is pre-calibrated and integration ready to produce repeatable scanning results. The simple-to-use software development kit (SDK) and connectivity options give developers complete control over all aspects of the 3D modeling process—from capture to alignment to the final model. The scanners can output into a variety of output formats (PLY, OBJ, STL, ASC, FBX) to accommodate different systems with ease.

The HDI 109 is available for order today.

LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning, measurement, and data visualization technologies, announces the official release of the next generation of the HDI Advance 3D scanning system. This is the first HDI product launch since the acquisition of 3D3 Solutions earlier this year.

The purpose of the redesign is to push the limits of the scanner’s hardware by improving scanning repeatability and ease of use. The new HDI Advance now uses USB 3.0 cameras for both faster and simpler connectivity to a computer. The scanner also features new lenses that produce higher accuracy scans with less scan distortion compared to its predecessor. The sleeker mount design delivers better repeatability in scan results and offers more stability while scanning.

“The HDI Advance is a great 3D scanning solution for the computer graphics industry,” said Terry Arden, CEO of LMI. “Our system provides great flexibility for scanning people and objects. Gaming, animation and movie studios have used the HDI Advance for 3D modeling and CGI in major motion pictures and top selling video games. The scanner generates high resolution digital 3D models accurately and quickly in color. With the release of the new generation of HDI Advance, we offer the best 3D scanning system in terms of speed, accuracy, and performance at an affordable price.”

The system is also valuable to companies for various applications including 3D visualization, 3D inspection, reverse engineering, or rapid prototyping. The new HDI Advance is available in two performance models, HDI Advance R1x and the R3x. The systems are available for order today.

LMI Technologies Acquires 3D3 Solutions

Written by

LMI Technologies Inc. has signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the shares of 3D3 Solutions, a supplier of 3D scanning software and hardware products based in Burnaby, Canada. The takeover deal will result in the integration of 3D3 by LMI Technologies under the LMI brand to create a powerhouse in 3D scanning, visualization, and measurement solutions for both inline factory automation and offline 3D scanning markets such as reverse engineering and 3D printing.

3D3 staff will continue development of HDI 3D scanners and FlexScan3D, a leading PC application offering sophisticated 3D acquisition, visualization and mesh processing. “The simplicity of building precise and complete 3D datasets sets us apart from everyone in the 3D scanning market today. We are excited to integrate our 3D processing technology with LMI’s sensor design expertise to build a formidable offering for customers,” says Thomas Tong, President of 3D3 Solutions. “As Global Sales Manager for 3D scanning products at LMI, I am looking forward to deliver exciting 3D scanner products to a larger audience.”

LMI’s Gocator 3D smart sensor product family delivers scanning, measurement, and control logic in a single industrial sensor package suitable for broad use in factory automation where non-contact quality inspection of widgets is required. “Integrating 3D3’s mesh processing algorithms into Gocator will deliver a new level of capability such as comparing scanned parts to a golden part or CAD model - a key requirement by factories to ensure parts with hundreds of features are rapidly inspected for manufacturing errors,” says Terry Arden, CEO of LMI Technologies. “In addition to enabling fast 3D inspection on Gocator, we see FlexScan3D as the platform to deploy both our 3D measurement tools and 2D HexSight machine vision library. This will give our customers an exceptional PC based solution for high end inspection applications where multi-core PC processing is required.”

With the acquisition of 3D3, LMI will expand into new markets such as medical (dental, ear, foot, face and body scanning), entertainment (gaming, special effects, and animation), manufacturing (reverse engineering, fast prototyping with 3D printing), and the arts (archival, reproductions) by leveraging 3D3’s existing reseller channel network and delivering next generation scanner products suitable for OEM customers.
