FastSCAN Cobra und SCORPION HLS
New Handheld laser scanner for easy & fast object digitizing
FastSCAN is lightweight and portable, with the ability to scan objects in their natural environment, onsite. This is particularly useful for physiological scanning applications since the device allows free form handheld scanning with no mechanical constraints.
The Cobra instantly acquires three dimensional surfaces by gathering measurements made by smoothly sweeping a handheld laser scanning wand over an object - in a manner similar to spray painting. The object's image instantly appears on your computer screen and the finished scan is processed to combine any overlapping sweeps, significantly reducing the time to develop surface models of virtually any object with little or no metal content. The three-dimensional data can then be saved in industry-standard formats for loading into other programs.
FastSCAN Cobra is designed to scan non-metallic, opaque objects. The scanner works by casting a fan of laser light over the object, while the camera on the wand views the laser to record a cross-sectional profile of the object. The embedded FASTRAK® is used to determine the position and orientation of the wand, enabling the computer to reconstruct the full three-dimensional surface of the object. Moveable objects may be scanned by attaching a second receiver to the object.
