The modular TopoGetter X-Series systems
Modular Topology and Color Scanner for 3D-imaging of haptic surfaces and objects
The TopoGetter X vacuum scan tables carry a rigid bridge which is moved by a pair of digitally and encoder synchronized high-precision y-drives. Scan table formats available today are 700 x 700 mm and 1300 X 1200 mm.
Two distinct scan units are available for the TopoGetter X-Series systems:
One for point-wise measuring of the topology (haptic surface or shape) of the sample, called the Topology Scan Unit, and another one for capturing the color image information of the sample, called the Color Scan Unit.
These are jointly mounted on the scan bridge to be driven by high-performance linear motors.
The shape and color data are generated in two separate or consecutive scans.
This allows – in a subsequent computational procedure – superimposing the plasticity and color data sets with absolute on-point accuracy, to produce a perfect 3D-image of the object in print or on monitor displays. The technology developed to enable all this is called 6to5® - technology
Color Scanner with ColorScanDome technology
With the unique ColorScanDome technology (CSD) any small area of 2- and 3-dimensional originals corresponding to the imaging scale of the digital camera and optics selected, can now be illuminated in ways so far only known from professional photo studios.
This illumination simulates a "Micro-Studio" which allows the sample to be illuminated with targeted and controllable diffused light using multiple high-power LED light sources.
Generating plasticity by adjustable shading while capturing the color image information has thus become a reality.
