About the EMS Creaform MetraSCAN 3D Scanner and Probe

EMS Demo: Creaform MetraSCAN 3D ScannerThe EMS Creaform MetraSCAN 3D Scanner and Probe is a fantastic device certain to revolutionize the way scanning is performed. This 3D scanning service utilizes the latest technologies to make it possible for you to capture every detail of a variety of objects without having to perform complicated setups or procedures. You can easily scan without targets and move around in free space with this device, as it allows you the most maneuverability around. In fact, it has a 7.8 liter volume. This means you can scan within a very large working area. You don’t have to be right next to the camera or anything. You can get quite a ways away from it.

The 3D scanning service itself uses two scanners and a laser source to capture object data. It’s actually very fast because it doesn’t require the use of targets. The sensors only look at where the laser strikes to pick up an object’s shape, which saves a considerable amount of time and effort. Along with the scanner is the optical probe system, which uses three sets of targets. So long as the tracking system can see the targets, the system works perfectly.

Another thing you should know about this 3D scanning service is it has a static mode and a dynamic referencing mode. The static mode is exactly what it sounds like–it allows you to scan an object from a static position. The dynamic referencing mode, however, allows you to add targets to an object as the camera can track it from all angles. This saves you a considerable amount of time. So, you can scan the front of an object, then turn the targets so they face the opposite direction and scan the back. This way, the targets will automatically line up and be aligned perfectly in the software. This is just another way this device saves you time.

While scanning an object, this 3D scanning service shows reference targets and the scanner itself on the screen. You just have to hold it 10 inches way from the part you want to scan and go to town. You can easily articulate your arm to get all of the nooks and crannies of an object. They will be easily aligned in the software thanks to the targets, as well.

Additionally, if you need to scan inside of some of those nooks and crannies, you can thanks to the probe. The probe allows you to scan the inside of holes, cylinders, and other hollow spaces without too much effort. Plus, this data will be easily incorporated into the larger scans you take. There’s no need to do any manual aligning here, it will all be done for you easily within the software and within the devices themselves.

The EMS Creaform MetraSCAN 3D Scanner and Probe take scanning technology to the next level. Just one session with this 3D scanning service and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. That’s how state of the art it is.
