The FastSCAN Cobra C1 scanning solution from US manufactured Polhemus instantly measures 3D shapes by smoothly sweeping a handheld, ergonomically correct laser scanning wand over an object in a manner similar to spray painting.
FastSCAN Cobra is lightweight, quick to set up and captures 3D images in real-time. The finished scan is then ready to export to CAD, CAM, or 3D modelling software as required.
WHAT THE MANUFACTURER SAYS
The single camera FastSCAN COBRA C1 has an embedded FASTRAK® unit, which is used to determine position and orientation, enabling the computer to reconstruct the full three-dimensional surface of the object. The system accurately scans a wide range of non-metallic, opaque objects from small items such as a hand or figurine, to large items such as a door or sofa.
A reference receiver is provided to enable scanning moving objects. The reference receiver can be attached to a headband to enable scanning a person, or can be adhered to an inanimate object using putty, tape or other similar method. The receiver allows you to conveniently reposition inanimate objects to scan hard to reach areas. No other scanner offers this feature.
WHAT INITION SAYS:
The Polhemus FastSCAN COBRA is a simple to use handheld scanner which captures geometric data in an incredibly smooth and simple manner. You are able to see a real-time representation of your scans on the screen as you go which allows you to assess where additional scans may be required. The scanner struggles with metal objects, but works very well with a range of different object types.
