Structured Light 3D Scanner for Industrial Design Professionals
LAKE MARY, Fla., July 16, 2019 /CNW/ -- FARO® (NASDAQ:FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for 3D Design announces the availability of the Cobalt Design™ structured light scanner product family. Structured light scanning technology uses projected light patterns with a camera system to capture large areas at once and, as a result, significantly reduces data capture time and delivers quicker results.
Cobalt Design™ (https://www.faro.com/cobalt-design/) , combined with the recently introduced RevEng™ software platform, delivers a one stop, comprehensive digital design solution where small to medium objects can be scanned with precision, in color with multiple levels of resolution. It is the first color structured light scanner from FARO specifically developed for design applications and is ideal for scanning complex surfaces, especially highly detailed organic shapes. Cobalt Design™ addresses a variety of design requirements, including reverse engineering, prototype design, packaging design, digital cataloging and even jewelry and fashion design.
Workflow Acceleration Cobalt Design™ enables design professionals to set up scan parameters once and then proceed to scan similar objects with the push of a button. Furthermore, several pre-configured scanned and meshing settings are available by default. This in turn translates to less time per scan position, more scans per day and faster completion of scan projects. Additionally, it ensures that results are repeatable and reliable.
Full Field Scanning The integrated, rotational axis dramatically improves the 3D scanning process and maximizes comprehensive scanning coverage. The scan object/part itself is placed in fixed position on the axis and then the axis can be set to automatically rotate up to 360 degrees as it is being scanned.
Best in Class Speed to Accuracy Combination Cobalt Design™ captures millions of 3D measurement points in as little as one second with up to 3.1Mpx accuracy for small to medium complex objects.
Full Color Digitization Precise and high quality textured scans can be captured in color and delivered as realistic images that enable even more detailed representations of geometric surfaces and finishing in true to life 3D color.
"The introduction of Cobalt Design™ together with the recently announced RevEng™ software platform reinforces our commitment to be the market and thought leadership for 3D data capture solutions across a variety of design- centric industries and applications," stated Thorsten Brecht, Senior Director, 3D Design. "We have elevated the 3D structured light paradigm by paralleling the development of both hardware and software, so users are able to leverage every ounce of advanced functionality of both technologies in concert."
