So fast and easy that it may trim days or weeks off your workload, FastSCAN is the ultimate handheld laser scanner. With a simple sweep of the FastSCAN wand, you can create instant real time 3D images and databases--anytime, anywhere. FastSCAN is the industry's most flexible and most affordable scanner.
Lightweight and Ultra-Portable
FastSCAN is lightweight and ultra-portable. The entire system is supplied in a briefcase, and setup only takes a few minutes. As a result, you can readily scan objects onsite, in their natural environments. The first laser scanner you can easily travel with, FastSCAN sets up almost anywhere, indoor or out.
Real Results in Real Time
FastSCAN instantly acquires three dimensional surface images when you sweep the handheld laser scanning wand over an object, in a manner similar to spray painting. FastSCAN works by projecting a fan of laser light on the object while the camera views the laser to record cross-sectional depth profiles. The object's image immediately appears on your computer screen. Because FastSCAN provides real-time visual feedback, monitoring and controlling the scan process is straightforward. Unlike other scanners, FastSCAN automatically stitches your scans together, saving a great deal of time. The sweeps list enables turning individual sweeps on and off to facilitate optimizing the amount of data in your final output.
Versatile Scanning Capabilities
Two different FastSCAN systems are available to accommodate varied scanning requirements and budgets. The SCORPION™ has two cameras, allowing for more detailed scans in fewer sweeps than the single-camera COBRA™ C1. While scanning an object, the dual cameras on the SCORPION wand view the laser from either side to record surface profiles of the object.
A reference receiver is provided to enable scanning moving objects. The reference receiver can be attached to a headband to enable scanning a person, or can be adhered to an inanimate object using putty, tape or other similar method. The receiver allows you to conveniently reposition inanimate objects to scan hard to reach areas. No other scanner offers this feature.
The handheld laser scanner can be used to digitize a human shape for animation, multimedia, custom apparel design, biomedical research, forensics, etc. The following example demonstrates the scanner's ability to:
The handheld laser scanner can be used to digitize the surface of objects for animation, rapid prototyping, 3D measurement, archiving, etc. The following example demonstrates the scanner's ability to do two things: rapidly digitize the complete 3D surface of an object and save the data in industry standard formats to be used by other programs.
