peel 3d is launching an industry first, affordable 3D scanner offering the functionalities and performance level required by professionals and caters to the growing need for sophisticated scanning capabilities in an entry-level solution. The peel 3d solution is powered by Creaform, a unit of AMETEK.
“In today’s marketplace, many professionals—from designers to engineers to educational professionals—are looking for 3D scanners that are affordable, but also offer 3D scanning capabilities that go beyond the simplistic, entry-level products currently on the market,” explained François Leclerc, head leader of the peel 3d initiative.
The system was developed to address the needs of entry-level professionals and 3D enthusiasts that require affordable 3D scanning technologies. peel 3d is very affordably priced at $5,900 USD and is available through peel 3d’s website (website is offline at the time of writing), enabling users to make high-quality 3D scans of small or large objects—all while keeping project budgets in check.
“The beauty of peel 3d is that although it is a budget-friendly 3D scanner, it truly packs a punch in terms of functionalities and performance. The entire team is thrilled to bring a more-compelling 3D scanning offering to the entry-level market.”
Benefits of peel 3d include the ability to scan many items directly without any preparation as it recognizes automatically the shape of objects. It uses stick-on targets to scan the flattest and smoothest of surfaces, offering an easy-to-use system for scanning the object, editing the results and exporting the file.
peel-3d’s software tool allows users to intuitively clean up, improve, align, and export scanning data with an unprecedented level of design freedom. This is a benefit not found in other 3D scanners. It works with a wide variety of surfaces and materials, making it ideal for many different applications: reverse engineering and design, science and education, art, heritage preservation and human body scanning.
