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.

Objet Ltd., will be showcasing its advanced 3D printing solutions by highlighting the impact on Hollywood films at SIGGRAPH 2012 from Aug. 7-9 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Jason Lopes, Lead Systems Engineer at Legacy Effects, will discuss the intersection of 3D printing and Hollywood on Aug. 8 at 10 a.m., in Room 301B. He will demonstrate how 3D technology is used in the design and prototyping of characters for Hollywood films. Some of the 3D-printed models of Legacy characters on display during the presentation, as well as in Objet's Booth (#235) throughout SIGGRAPH, include the Hulk from "Marvel: The Avengers" and Wahoon and John Carter from "John Carter."

The models demonstrate the breadth and versatility of Objet's industry-leading 107 digital materials, which are capable of simulating properties ranging from varying grades of rubber to ABS-grade engineering plastics, as well as simulating clear transparency.

In its second year, the SIGGRAPH Business Symposium provides an intimate, interactive forum for open, frank conversations among leaders and executives in the visual effects, gaming, and media arenas as they explore the present and future of the industry. SIGGRAPH 2012 welcomes visionary leaders and experts from a broad spectrum of the computer graphics industry, including animation, education, motion pictures, gaming, and visual effects, to this year’s Business Symposium in Los Angeles, 5 August 2012.

This full-day event is an exclusive opportunity for attendees to gain high-level, experiential vantage point insight from the producers and executives who have all forged unique paths to their current roles and now design the industry’s direction. The day begins with breakfast and round-table discussions of the day's agenda. Possible topics include visual-effects production, marketing, international law, education, business development, and other areas related to the industry's current issues. The morning session provides a foundation for the day – an opportunity to hear from leaders on the global stage what they experience from their particular perspective, followed by featured speakers Carl Rosendahl and John Textor, both visionary leaders who influence the direction of our industry in vastly different manners.

Throughout the day attendees will join in-depth discussion and have ample time to interact with their peers before the afternoon session closes. The Symposium provides a look into newer business models from some of the people and companies defining the future.

SIGGRAPH 2012 will bring thousands of computer graphics and interactive technology professionals from six continents to Los Angeles, California for the industry's most respected technical and creative programs focusing on research, science, art, animation, music, gaming, interactivity, education, and the web from Sunday, 5 August through Thursday, 9 August 2012 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. SIGGRAPH 2012 includes a three-day exhibition of products and services from the computer graphics and interactive marketplace from 7-9 August 2012. More details are available at SIGGRAPH 2012 or on  Facebook and Twitter.
