HDI Carbon, Polyga’s 3D Scanner

A few months after the release of the line of 3D scanners HDI Compact, Polyga, specialist of 3D scanners and mesh processing technologies, has launched the HDI Carbon, a crossover structured-light 3D scanner.

The HDI Carbon is highlighted by its custom molded carbon fiber frame. Thanks to this material, the whole system is very flexible and only weighs 4.18 lbs (1.9 kg). Unlike other 3D scanners which can 3D scan a specific size of an object, the HDI Carbon can scan objects of different sizes- all in one system.

It integrates two camera mounting positions on the carbon fiber frame to adjust the scanner’s diagonal field of view from 225mm to 600mm.

HDI Carbon requires the use of two-megapixel machine vision cameras. Four million polygons per scan can be generated from the system, at an accuracy of up to 50 microns (0.0020″) for a 225mm diagonal field of view. Moreover, thanks to a LED projector for a long-life span, minimal heat emitted enables to minimize scan distortion for repeatable 3D scanning results.

To give an overall point of view on this HDI Product line, Thomas Tong, President of Polyga Inc. said that: “at one end of the spectrum, we have the HDI Advance which is known for its flexible field of view. At the other end, the HDI Compact is ultra-slim and easy to take along for traveling. The HDI Carbon provides advantages from both systems into one convenient solution.

To ease transportation, a travel case is delivered with the 3D technology.
