3D software for laser profile sensor enables export to CAD
Micro-Epsilon's 3D-View and 3D-Data software are used with the company's ScanCONTROL range of non-contact laser profile sensors. These sensors enable you to detect surface defects and to inspect grooves, channels, gaps and edges in a variety of applications. The system has standalone plug-and-play capability, and is easy to set up, configure and adapt for different measurement applications.
All users of scanCONTROL receive a complimentary version of 3D-View with the sensor, but the new software, 3D-Data, is for users who need to export the 3D captured data from ScanCONTROL and export it to their CAD/CAM system. Florian Martin, product sales manager for ScanCONTROL at Micro-Epsilon comments: "3D-Data is ideal for R&D departments, design engineers and production engineers because it allows the user to quickly demonstrate the capability of the sensor and the quality of the measurement data being captured. 3D-Data goes that bit further than 3D-View and enables you to visualise the surface of the material or product being measured."
The software also provides an intensity function that enables users to see the intensity of the surface in black and white images (greyscale). Although colour images are not possible, a colour coding function allows the user to set up suitable colour codes for products being measured.
