ALLEROD, Denmark, Apr 24, 2023 – Scan Dimension announces the release of SOL PRO Creator 2.0 scanning software, exclusive to the SOL PRO 3D desktop scanner. This update combines SOL PRO Creator’s intuitive interface and highly automated approach with a new live view of the 3D modeling process, as well as provides opportunities for users to step in at key stages. Among other benefits, it makes 3D scanning of symmetrical objects with few or no distinct features – a well-known challenge – faster and more accurate.
SOL PRO Creator 2.0 downloads immediately for registered users. It’s also available for download at ScanDimension.com/pro-install. New customers can now purchase the SOL PRO 3D scanner with Creator 2.0 directly from ScanDimension.com.
“At Scan Dimension,” explains Jacob Bendix, Global CCO of Scan Dimension, “we believe that whenever the scanners and software can do the hard work, they should. But we work closely with our users – their feedback is a key driver in development. What we heard is that many of them value a hands-on approach as much as they value a streamlined, easy-to-use process. We developed Creator 2.0 to give them both.”
The new SOL PRO Creator 2.0 lets users watch the scan in progress. The software shows a live view of the point cloud being built, which users can rotate and inspect.
Additionally, Creator 2.0 displays thumbnails of the automatically aligned point clouds after each scanning pass, so users can visually confirm proper alignment before the automated meshing process.
Improved: User control
Just as before, SOL PRO Creator’s automated processes deliver consistently high-quality scans for asymmetrical objects with abundant scan alignment features. When it comes to highly symmetrical objects, users can now also take action to shorten the path to a quality 3D model.
“Because symmetrical objects are notoriously difficult to scan, the new version of our software ensures users can review alignment before they commit time to meshing,” continues Bendix. “And when an adjustment is needed, we’ve made it easier to get that done.”
- the option to delete individual point clouds
- faster manual alignment, using matching pairs of user-selected points to align two point clouds at a time.
Version 2.0 also allows users to delete unneeded sections of the scanned object directly in the software. As always, artifacts and other loose or floating points are automatically removed.
Flexible storage, installation, and operation
Finally, Creator 2.0 offers greater flexibility. Users can now select the location where the file collection will be saved, making it easier to share files and manage data storage limitations.
“SOL PRO Creator 2.0 is about options,” Bendix explains. “As a result, this update doesn’t just benefit those who want more control over the process – it’s a value-add for everyone.”
