Z Corporation announced the ZScanner 600, the world’s most affordable portable 3D laser scanner, designed to provide high-resolution 3D data capture to a broad base of users at an economical price.
The ZScanner 600 has a sampling speed of 18,000 measurements per second and is equipped with two cameras. It features resolution down to 0.1 mm and XY accuracy up to 80 microns. The 3D scanner exports to DAE, .FBX, .MA, .OBJ, .PLY, .STL, .TXT, .WRL, .X3D, .X3DZ, .ZPR files. It uses FireWire for data transfer and as power source.
The ZScanner 600 is available now for US$28,900.
ZScanners capture data in one continuous scan rather than in numerous shots from fixed positions, eliminating hours of post-processing time to integrate static shots into a cohesive scan. ZScan(R) Lite software, included with the scanner, automatically produces an .stl file for import into a 3D CAD software package or output to a 3D printer.
