Exact Metrology introduces the Artec MHT 3D Scanner
Cincinnati, OH – May 3, 2010 – The new Artec MHT 3D Scanner from Exact Metrology is capable of capturing surface color and texture information in addition to the 3D geometry of the scanned object. These enhanced capabilities make the MHT 3D Scanner ideal for a variety of applications including computer graphics & animation, archival, prototyping and more.
The Artec MHT 3D Scanner captures a brilliant spectrum of colors (up to 24bpp). Capturing both color information of the object's shape and its geometry results in fine textured models, which can then be opened and post-processed by a number of 3D software packages. Complete MHT systems including hardware, software and training start at just $20,900.
"With the new color and texture scanning capabilities, the Artec MHT is unlike any 3D scanner at this price point," states Steve Young, Principal at Exact Metrology. "By capturing highly detailed, color 3D models of people and objects, the MHT 3D Scanner allows users to quickly and accurately create 3D representations of their world."
As with other Artec 3D Scanners, the MHT requires no mounts or markers. It works just like a regular video camera, but instead of a two-dimensional image, the result is a three-dimensional image captured at speeds of up to 15 surfaces per second. The scanning process is extremely straightforward: simply walk around the object and scan it from various angles, while the accompanying software combines all the scanned images into one.
