How It Works

Projected bluelight 3D scanner Technical Illustration Diagram Figure

The Polyga Compact 3D scanners take a 3D image of what it can see at one time. To create a digital model of the entire object, scans have to be taken from all angles. These components are used to capture a scan:

  1. Capturing Unit: The light source (LED light) projects a series of patterns onto the scan target. The light patterns become distorted when they project onto the object’s surface. Duo cameras capture these images and send them to FlexScan3D to process the information.
  2. FlexScan3D Software: The control center that runs the entire operation. It uses the captured images to calculate the object’s depth and surface information to create a 3D scan. FlexScan3D then cleans, merges, and stitches multiple scans together (known as post-processing) in order to create a complete digital 3D model.
Automate The 3D Scanning Workflow

Automate The 3D Scanning Workflow

When paired with a rotary table, Polyga Compact 3D scanners produce better digital 3D models faster than doing it manually (up to 3x faster). Simply place the object on the rotary table. With a click of the button, let the system do all the work for you.

Automation is a time-saver, especially when 3D scanning similar objects in volume. Reduce manual work and get amazing results every time.

Robotic arm

Integrate 3D Scanning into Systems or Devices

With the Polyga Compact, you can quickly add 3D scanning capabilities to your operations. Each system includes a simple-to-use software development kit (SDK) and connectivity options. The SDK is available for Windows 10 64bit, with C++/C# libraries and examples. Export the output into a variety of common output formats (PLY, OBJ, STL, ASC, FBX) to accommodate different systems with ease.

You have complete control over all aspects of the 3D modeling process to fully customize the process to your needs.

Results You Can Trust

All Polyga Compact 3D scanners are fully enclosed factory calibrated systems that make 3D scanning easy, similar to a point and shoot. With a robust exterior body while being unbelievably lightweight, the systems deliver accurate 3D scans with measurement repeatability you can trust.
