Latest Solution For Scan Based Design And Inspection – Capture Mini – Released by Photo Release 3D Systems
3D Systems has this month announced the release of the CaptureTM Mini scan-based inspection and design system. The Capture Mini system is thrifty, accurate and simple – given that a choice of 3DS’ industry-leading Geomagic software products is included, it is set to become the go-to solution for scanning, designing and inspecting small objects. It is perfect for the manufacturing, dental appliances, jewellery product design and mechanical industries.
Capture Mini utilises the latest blue LED scanning technology to bring real objects into a variety of CAD packages, so that designers and engineers can create new designs based on existing objects. Capture Mini also aids with inspection, by giving quality assurance engineers the new ability to scan a part on their desktop and check its quality against CAD designs, which guards against mistakes early in the process. Weighing less than a kilo, Capture Mini is easily transported and can be used almost anywhere.
“Capture Mini gives our customers yet another option to begin their journey through the digital thread,” said Calvin Hur, Vice President and General Manager, Geomagic Solutions, 3DS. “This is an easy, highly precise way to begin bringing the real world into digital design packages, then creating objects, 3D printing them, and scanning them for fidelity to CAD designs. It opens the door for creating 3D content of all kinds.”
