Fuel3D is also the world’s first 3D scanner that combines pre-calibrated stereo cameras with photometric imaging to allow it to capture and process a 3D model in seconds, even including the ability to capture colour information. The technology behind the scanner was originally developed within Oxford University for medical imaging applications.
“The unique technology that we have developed allows us to offer what is literally a point-and-shoot approach to capturing both 3D data and colour, and we are confident that no one else in the world is able to offer this kind of solution at the price that we can achieve”, explains James Paterson, CTO of Fuel3D Inc.
Fuel3d Inc. has also teamed up with another Kickstarter success story, the 3D design software company Uformia, so that Kickstarter pledgers have the opportunity to get their product bundled with Uformia’s MeshUp software, the first real volume modeler for meshes.
“Right now, a large obstacle to 3D printing adoption is the difficulty in producing the digital 3D models required”, says Roger Chang, CEO of Pirate 3D. “A high quality affordable scanner will really change the 3D printing game and Fuel3D’s 3D scanner looks set to put 3D modeling capability into everyone’s hands.”
