3D3 Solutions Introduces the HDI Blitz 3D Scanner

Written by

3D3 Solutions, a cutting edge developer of 3D scanning and visualization technologies, announces the official release of the HDI Blitz 3D scanning system. The system is the latest 3D scanning solution from the company that captures digital 3D scans from physical objects in seconds. 3D3 Solutions is demonstrating the HDI Blitz for the first time at TCT Live, the event for additive manufacturing, 3D printing & product development, in Hall 3A, Stand U23.

“With the success of developing advanced 3D scanning systems, we found that there is a strong demand for a simple, easy-to-use 3D scanner without sacrificing the quality of 3D scans,” said Thomas Tong, President of 3D3 Solutions. “The focus of the HDI Blitz is to make 3D scanning technology more accessible. It doesn’t require advanced technical skills to operate the system and it is fast to get the HDI Blitz up and running.”

The HDI Blitz requires minimal amount of setup time. Simply plug in the system, install the 3D scanning software on the computer and it is ready for scanning. The 3D scanner uses white light 3D scanning technology that scans an object without any direct contact to ensure there is no measurement interference. The system captures a 3D scan in one second and generates more than a million data points (two million polygons) per scan. It includes basic post-processing capabilities such as aligning and merging that transforms 3D scans into a complete digital 3D model.

3D3 Solutions continues along the path of developing 3D scanning systems with affordability and flexibility in mind. The HDI Blitz 3D Scanner offers high resolution 3D scanning results at a fraction of the cost of comparable systems. The system is useful for companies and organizations that need complex 3D measurements for various applications including 3D visualization, 3D inspection, reverse engineering, or rapid prototyping.

The HDI Blitz 3D scanning system is available for purchase today.

3D3 Solutions Announces Release of KScan3D

Written by

3D3 Solutions, a cutting edge developer of 3D scanning and visualization technologies, announces the release of KScan3D at Siggraph 2012. KScan3D is a Kinect-based 3D scanning software solution that provides consumers with the opportunity to capture quality 3D scans of real-world objects at an affordable price. 3D3 Solutions is demonstrating KScan3D for the first time at the Siggraph Exhibition in the Los Angeles Convention Center from August 7-9.

“KScan3D benefits from years of research and development on our professional line of 3D scanning products including the HDI 3D Scanner and FlexScan3D Software,” said Nick Koziupa, Product Manager. “The software combines our state-of-the-art technology with Microsoft’s phenomenally successful Kinect hardware to provide beginners, students, educators, and hobbyists with a fully featured, easy to use 3D scanning solution.”

With KScan3D, Kinect hardware, and a PC or Mac running Windows OS, users can capture 3D scans with a click of a button. Advanced algorithms quickly process the captured information and enable users to export finalized data in a variety of common file formats.

“We wanted to launch KScan3D at Siggraph as this is the place to find out the newest developments in the computer graphics industry,” said Thomas Tong, President of 3D3 Solutions. “With today’s release of KScan3D, our company now provides a full suite of 3D scanning solutions for all of our customers, from entry-level users to experienced industry professionals.”

KScan3D can be purchased separately or as a bundled package with the Kinect for Windows hardware. A 30-day trial version of KScan3D is also available.

3D3 Solutions, a cutting edge developer of white-light 3D scanning systems, announces the official release of the next version of its 3D scanning software, FlexScan3D 3.1. The proprietary technology powers the company’s line of HDI 3D Scanners and is also available separately for companies that want to build their own custom 3D scanners for OEM applications. The updated version focuses on optimizing 3D scanning and mesh processing capabilities.

“The goal for FlexScan3D 3.1 was to make it even easier for users to operate our 3D scanning systems,” said Thomas Tong, President of 3D3 Solutions. “With FlexScan3D 3.1, users can reach to the end result faster. We added new features and improvements that will reduce the time it takes from capturing raw scans to generating complete 3D models while still getting high quality results.”

Compared to previous version of FlexScan3D, the latest 3.1 version offers the following benefits:

  • The new combine feature removes duplicate and overlapping data, making it much easier and faster to generate a clean 360 degree 3D model than previous versions of the software
  • Multi-Core Processor Support delivers faster mesh generation and processing
  • New merging algorithm generates more accurate and detailed 3D models
  • Improved mesh rendering for additional realism
  • Advanced 3D scanner control settings help to achieve optimal 3D scanning performance
  • Support for Point Grey USB 3.0 and GigE cameras for high speed scanning

3D3 Solutions continues to offer advanced 3D scanning at an affordable price. FlexScan3D 3.1 also includes an expanded API library and scripting functions for developers to customize automated 3D scanner controls and data processing tailored specifically for their applications.

FlexScan3D 3.1 Software and the HDI 3D Scanners, which include the new version of the software, are now available for purchase through 3D3 Solutions and its authorized distributors.

3D3 Solutions, a cutting-edge developer of 3D scanning technologies, will be exhibiting at Siggraph 2011, the year’s most comprehensive exhibition of products and services for computer graphics and interactive techniques. The company is excited to offer attendees at the conference free 3D face scanning demonstrations at their booth #879.

The face scanning process involves using a 3D scanner to capture an accurate 3D mesh and color texture directly from a human face. The output is especially useful in the video games, visual effects and medical imaging industry. 3D3 Solutions will feature the HDI 3D Scanner to demonstrate live face scanning at Siggraph. Their scanner uses white-light technology to capture high-resolution, color 3D scan in less than 1.4 seconds. Attendees will be provided with the 3D data of their face scans for personal use.

3D3 Solutions offers 3D scanning systems that are flexible in capturing human shapes, art sculptures, and mechanical parts for industrial inspection. 3D3 Solutions has also worked with a number of leading game companies and universities on developing custom high-speed 3D face scanners. In the latest development, the company’s custom face scanner is capable of performing a 3D scan every 0.2 seconds. “People have a tendency to move just by breathing alone and movement affects scan quality,” said Thomas Tong, President of 3D3 Solutions. “With the ability to generate 3D scans almost instantaneously, users will have cleaner, high quality scan data to work with.”
