Levis, Quebec - Creaform, a provider of 3D technology and engineering services, is has released VXelements, a new software platform that allows for the acquisition of 3D data from any of the solutions developed by Creaform: the Handyscan 3D family of laser scanners and the HandyPROBE/C-Track line of optical CMM.
VXelements consists of three software modules: VXscan, VXprobe (formerly HPS), and the new VXtrack. VXscan now offers the possibility to thoroughly scan any part at any given resolution, within the scanners' range, without any limitations due to part size. It also improves offline work by offering a user or multiple users the possibility to merge the scans and reconstruct surfaces using different session files. When automatic hole filling is selected, time-consuming operations can be taken care of by the software itself.
VXprobe gains an integrated, user-friendly interface. The new VXtrack module adds dynamic tracking capability to the C-Track line of dual camera sensors. It can now record thirty 3D images per second of a reflector or sets of reflectors in real time for a variety of applications involving motion tracking. VXelements is designed to simplify the analysis of movement, acceleration, vibrations, assembly processes, robotic performance, and biomechanics. The module offers a graphic interface to interact with the results or to export the result files in common formats.
While VXtrack will be sold separately, VXscan and VXprobe will continue to be delivered with every Handyscan 3D or HandyPROBE. Customers currently on the appropriate maintenance program will also receive the software. The new out-of-the-shelf VXelements software will be available starting October 13, 2010.
