The Handy Scan 3D 700 is a portable yet versatile metrology solution from Creaform. Through 3D scanning, companies can effectively conduct reverse engineering and inspection operations throughout the product development process. The Handy Scan is a handheld laser scanner optimized to meet the demands of engineers. It features 7 lasers that produce a highly detailed point cloud from physical parts and assemblies. To setup the scanner, simply connect it to a laptop or workstation with a USB and power cable. Next, you stage your part by placing the targets, which will enable the lasers to triangulate and generate the scan data. Surprisingly enough, you can be up and running in just a few minutes. There are several great features about this scanner. For example, it features multi-functional buttons that allow me to do things like adjust the zoom, the shutter, and even initiate my scan without having to go back and forth to your computer. Another benefit is its accuracy and speed. It produces scans with tolerances of up to 30 microns and has one of the highest measurement rates on the market, 480,000 measures/s. This allows for timely scanning in an age where speed is critical to success. Finally, [...]

Reprinted from the Stratasys Blog: 9 Jun. 2014 by Galit Beck Today we’re excited to unveil Stratasys’ extended range of flexible and rigid material options for theObjet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer. With these new color palettes, Stratasys is continuing to expand your ability to improve the look, feel and functionality of your 3D printed parts. The new offerings comprise six flexible material palettes, featuring more than 200 vibrant color shades in a wide range of Shore A values and opacities. There are also four new rigid gray and color palettes – three 45-color rigid gray palettes, each combining rigid white (VeroWhite) and black (VeroBlack) with colors, and one 45-hue gray palette with varying levels of translucency. We caught up with Boaz Jacobi, Stratasys Product Marketing Manager, to help illuminate Stratasys’ wonderful world of color and multi-material opportunities. Stratasys Blog: What new possibilities does this extended range of material options bring to additive manufacturing? Jacobi: The Objet500 Connex3, already the most versatile 3D printer on the market, can now leverage over 1,000 color options and virtually unlimited combinations of flexible, rigid and translucent-to-opaque colors in a single print run. This provides true final product realism and versatility in end-to-end applications. Stratasys [...]
Columbus, Ohio-based company, Knockout Concepts, is developing a mobile 3D Scanner. Their objective is to create the mobile 3D Scanner that can go wherever you go and capture whatever what you see. The 3D Scanner is a first-of-its-kind unit which contains an integrated depth sensor from Primesense, the same technology used in 3D Systems’ own scanning device. As it happens, Knockout used a rapid prototyped version to present at Maker Faire, turning more than just a few heads. Knocking out Concepts The benefit of Knockout Concepts’ product, first demonstrated at Maker Faire 2013, is that it offers complete wireless mobility–no cords are required to tether the user to a laptop. All point cloud data is processed right on the device using a Quad-core ARM CPU/GPU with the 3D scanning being done in real time, right on the touch screen. The content is stored to memory in the scanner with an internal battery that will keep you scanning for 5hrs+ on a single charge. The product renders a digital file that is suitable for further CAD development, 3D animation or 3D printing. The Technology House (TTH), a product development and rapid prototyping company, first came in contact with Knockout Concepts when [...]
