Quick look at the advantageous of the ShapeCapture Suite:

  • Full camera and lens calibration.
  • Photogrammetric Bundle solution built in.
  • Accurate dense stereo matching from digital imagery, even converged or different photo scale images.
  • Ability to use structure light scanning, or image based passive scanning "Do Both".
  • The dense stereo matching module has been refined to provide an approach to handle different type of surfaces, colors, shapes with very effective tools sets in the software.
  • ShapeScan_SM can be used almost anywhere to acquire 3D point cloud data, indoors or outdoors, either from the air, water or ground. You can use one or several cameras.

 


It has been a busy year we have completed work on the Warner Bros. upcoming movie Jack The Giant Slayer due for release March 1, 2013. We worked on 3D face replacements and 3D modeling of props and sets, utilizing ShapeCapture Suite and our 3D camera approach.

 

ShapeQuest Inc. announces the release of ShapeScan_SM V4.5

ShapeScan_SM V4.5 uses passive image based stereo matching only. It also incorporates more matching features and allows for rotoscope of areas to be matched and is offered at a lower price.

 

ShapeQuest Inc. announces the upcoming release of ShapeCapture V9.0

Version 9.0 offers a new user interface and powerful stereo matching tools. It also maintains the powerful modeling tools from the earlier versions all in one package. You will have the option of creating very quick texture models or create detailed point cloud data of an entire structure or portions of it. The stereo matching approach identifies problem areas or pixels in advance and excludes them from the stereo matching.

ShapeCapture continues to be the leading software package for accurate 3d measurement and modeling. ShapeCapture, is in use in over 30 countries. ShapeCapture offers the best of both worlds accurate measurement, detailed 3d modeling, and interfacing to compatible technologies.

ShapeCapture provides the capability for 3D Modeling from images, Camera Calibration, 3D Coordinate Measurement, Photogrammetry, Texture Mapping, Automatic Target Extraction and Stereo Matching.

All ShapeScan_SM users will be updated to the new v11 release: For further information regarding the new V11:

 

SPECIAL UPGRADE PRICING:

For existing ShapeCapture v6.0 users you can now upgrade to the ShapeScan_SM software for a limited time of up to 40% OFF THE LIST PRICE.

This offer is also available for ShapeTexture users that want to upgrade to the ShapeTexture_A package.


ShapeQuest releases major software updates: The new releases expands ShapeQuest capabilities for its flexible approach to 3D scanning and modeling. Some times it is best to scan an object, other times to image an object or sometimes you are required to do both. The NEW ShapeScan_SM does both and does it automatically by determining the data source and selecting the correct mode. This is an intelligent software package and our next generation of dense stereo matching and scanning. It directly interfaces to the worlds leading point cloud software suite for editing and mesh creation.

Also released is our NEW version of the ShapeTexture program it applies textures to polygon mesh files automatically. Polygon groups are created automatically with seam blending, the system allows for use of large image sets. It uses a photogrammetric bundle solution for registration data or you can use IMU information. It will work with any type of scanner including all Lidar systems and can be used with air, ground or marine lidar applications.

In addition The NEW ShapeCapture Suite has also been released and it operates as a gateway for all ShapeQuest software, such as the ShapeCapture, ShapeScan, ShapeTexture, ShapePattern, ShapeQuest Organizer, and Polyworks Modeler/Inspector. The user can configure menus, and select themes and has better flow for our PolyWorks interface.
