NextEngine, Santa Monica, CA, offers the Desktop 3D Scanner, a full-color multi-laser scanner that scans complex shapes for CAD and 3D design applications on the desktop. About the size of a cereal box, the scanner connects directly to a PC via USB 2.0. It operates with proprietary MultiStripe Laser Triangulation (MLT) technology that features twin arrays of four Class 1M 10-mW solid-state lasers with custom optics at a 650-nm wavelength. The scanner also features twin 3-megapixel CMOS RGB image sensors, optically synchronous RGB color texture capture, and built-in spatially diverse white-light texture illuminators. Full-color photo data is captured for each surface point, and there is no preset limit for the size of objects to be scanned. Objects larger than 5.1 x 3.8" in macro mode and 13.5 x 10.1" in wide mode can be composite-captured with supplied ScanStudio(tm) software. The unit has throughput of 50,000 processed points per second, and comes with an AutoPositioner(tm) to capture multiple surfaces of objects, and a PartGripper(tm) to secure objects during scanning.
