The ShapeScan DSLR is one of our new generation scanners. The ShapeScan_SM DSLR Scanner achieves high resolution scanning with a structured white light scanning source. It can be configured with most DSLR cameras and point resolution up to 18 million points. The system is configured automatically within the ShapeScan_SM module where you have the option to image or scan the object. Scan time ranges from .03 sec to 2 seconds to acquire millions of points. With accuracy of .025 to .100 mm (.001 to .004")
The Stereo cameras approach with or without a projection device allows for very accurate and quick scanning on nearly any type of object within shorter distances of 1 to 5 meters.
The system will work with any type of DLP projector including small handheld LED models. Also enclosed cases are available for projector and cameras. Since the scanning ability is built into the base ShapeScan_SM system you have an option of ordering a turn key system, tripod, cameras, housing, and projector for a total solution. ShapeQuest Inc. provides full system integration, with installation, and training for ShapeCapture, ShapeTexture, ShapeScan and PolyWorks.
The mounting hardware system can also be ordered separately without cameras or projector when you place an order for the ShapeScan_SM software. The camera mounts are fully adjustable for various base lengths for scanning from .5 meters to 7 meters. The DSLR scanner can be used for stationary objects, for human faces or full body scans but should not be used for moving objects. For this you will require changing out the DSLR cameras for our locked higher frame rate camera link cameras. The ShapeScan automatically senses this and will run the data.
The mounting hardware can also be used for DSM dense stereo matching in fact you can cycle scan methods during the scan process. Since the cameras are registered, you can scan objects in less than a second. The ShapeScan suite allows for the use of a target template for automatically registering the images and auto camera calibration, there is no need for placing targets around any object and registering the images.
The ShapeScan_SM is accessible to virtually any user. Even at a lower price point, it is able to capture large amounts of data at a more rapid pace and with greater ease than most competing systems. Although you can use any type of camera, we recommend you not use small format point and shoot cameras, we recommend using DSLR cameras from Nikon or Canon or other brands that you will allow for computer control. If you are looking at using lower end cameras you might consider using a lower price, less accurate scanning software package rather than using the ShapeScan_SM suite.
The ShapeScan system also support wireless operation of the cameras and image transfer from cameras, it is also IPAD compatible data acquisition and pattern generation can be made with the Ipad.
Please Note: The ShapeScan_SM system is not dependent on using more than one camera or projection device. In the majority of cases depending on the subject to be scanned only one camera is used as one can move around the subject, We can support a single camera mounted on aircraft, boats or vehicles. especially with our RTK/IMU approach for larger mapping projects.
You also have the option to utilize machine vision or motion picture cameras for scanning for modeling dynamic objects and scenes. The system can work with Red Epic Digital cinema cameras and any machine vision cameras such a camera link, GigE, or USB (please review the camera section from the ShapeMonitor information)
