Making 3D scanning more accessible for industry applications
Amherst, Virginia (October 2, 2018) – Metron3D announces the launch of Metron E, an affordable structured-light 3D scanner built for professional use. It is a practical solution for designers, engineers, educators, and researchers who have modest budgets but still need high quality scan results.
“People are often attracted to the price of low-cost consumer-based 3D scanners but they feel disillusioned by the results when they try to use the scan data for work,” said Paul Motley, CTO of Metron3D. “Metron E was created in response to this growing demand of professionals who want to implement 3D scanning technology into their operations for the first time and don’t want to spend too much on the capital investment. They can still get professional quality data they can trust with an affordable 3D scanner like the Metron E, in terms of accuracy, resolution, and repeatability. The scanner captures physical objects into digital 3D models for use in industry applications including 3D modeling, reverse engineering (scan to CAD), computer-aided inspection, and scientific measurement.”
The Metron E 3D scanner is pre-calibrated for accuracy and it is simple to setup and use. It is easy to operate, even for professionals who are just getting started with 3D scanning.
The Metron 3D scanner is effective at getting the job done. It generates high resolution and accurate quality scans in about 1 second per scan. The high-performance E-HD model generates an average of 4.9 million data points per scan with an impressive accuracy of up to 25 microns (0.025mm). Finish projects faster by spending less time scanning and move on to other aspects of work.
Metron E is powered by FlexScan3D scanning software that makes the 3D scanning experience user-friendly and efficient, from capturing 3D data to post-processing. Much of the 3D scanning workflow is streamlined and automated. Users can capture stunning 3D scans to create full digital 3D models in the quickest amount of time.
The Metron E 3D scanning system starts at $5,990 US dollars and is available in two models: E and E-HD. For more information, please visit the Metron3D website.
