FlexScan3D to power DIY 3D scanners Metrology and Quality News


Polyga has announced the availability of FlexScan3D software which allows users to build an affordable 3D scanner powered by the company’s proprietary 3D scanning platform.

“Choosing the right 3D scanning software can make all the difference when it comes to building your own 3D scanner, as it is the control center for capturing and processing 3D scans.” said Thomas Tong, president of Polyga Inc. “With this in mind, we decided to provide an affordable version of the FlexScan3D software for users who enjoy creating their own custom 3D scanners, while providing them with a robust 3D scanning engine. FlexScan3D is known for powering Polyga’s line of professional 3D scanners. 3D scanning software now offers the same reliability and user experience to prosumers. »

Hardware compatibility

With the FlexScan3D software, Polyga claims to have the software component covered to allow users to start building a DIY 3D scanner. All users have to do is procure the hardware components. 3D scanning software interfaces with recommended machine vision cameras, lenses and HDMI projectors.


FlexScan3D 3D scanning software provides all the tools needed to reproduce accurate, high-resolution 3D scans directly from real-world objects. It comes with advanced 3D scanning features and a refined post-processing package. The simplified user interface allows users to quickly access the final 3D model.

– Solid on the basics: FlexScan3D captures clean raw 3D scans to reduce the need for extensive processing of scan data later in the workflow, saving valuable time.

– Advanced post-processing tools: Comprehensive tools easily align and merge scans into a complete digital 3D model.

Additional features include:

– interactive hole filling to create a tight mesh for 3D printing

– deviation analysis and 3D measurement tools for comparative studies

– transformation tool to precisely align your scan data in a predefined coordinate system

Ready to go: Whether you need 3D models for 3D printing or to share 3D content using an online publishing platform, it’s easy to export them to common file formats ( PLY, OBJ, STL, ASC, FBX) to use them.
