Fuel3D (www.fuel-3d.co), a 3D capture and imaging innovator, has launched Fuel3D Studio 2.1, the latest version of its software for processing and manipulating 3D scan data captured by the company’s $1,490 SCANIFY handheld 3D scanner system.
Key developments include improved Z-axis precision and the ability to process scan data in the cloud; both of these key developments originated from the company’s engagement with enterprise partner/customers. Fuel3D’s Cat Bird algorithm improves Z-axis precision on scans, which means that scans are processed with improved depth accuracy
Improved Z-axis cloud processing can be applied to previous scan files without the need to re-scan the subject. Users simply open any file previously captured by SCANIFY and re-process via the new cloud option in Fuel3D Studio.
The introduction of cloud processing (currently running in beta) helps to remove the burden of 3D scan processing from a computer or tablet by executing the new algorithm on Fuel3D’s servers. Access to cloud services is provided via a menu function in Fuel3D Studio.
