Structured light 3D scanner for industrial design professionals

September 4th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Faro has announced 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, combined with the recently introduced RevEng software platform, delivers a comprehensive digital design solution where small to medium objects can be scanned with precision, in colour with multiple levels of resolution. It is the first colour structured light scanner from the company specifically developed for design applications and is suited for scanning complex surfaces, especially highly detailed organic shapes. The scanner addresses a variety of design requirements, including reverse engineering, prototype design, packaging design, digital cataloguing and even jewellery and fashion design. It 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.
