ROLAND PICZA LPX-1200 3D Laser Scanner


The Roland LPX-1200 3D laser scanner is Roland's highest resolution laser scanner. With a 0.1mm resolution, intricate details of small objects are able to be scanned.

The ease of use of the scanner allows beginners to 3D laser scan objects. Designers, artists, animators, and game developers have the ability to scan objects into the computer in a highly automated manner. Just like a microwave oven in usage, simply open the door, place the object you want to scan inside, close the door, set your scan parameters and press start. The LPX-1200 laser scanner will automatically 3D scan the object for you and create a 3D computer model.

Easy to Use 3D Laser Scanner
The Roland LPX-1200 3D laser scanner requires no complicated settings or technical expertise. With just a single mouse click, the LPX-1200 laser scans a 3D object. The LPX-1200 3D laser scanner is controlled from the supplied Roland software. Users can control the 3D laser scanning resolution, the laser scan area and laser scan mode (rotary or planar), providing advanced users with more options and control over the laser scanning process. Scans are done automatically and unattended.

A Complete Solution from 3D Laser Scanning to Data Conversion
3D laser scanners produce 3D point cloud data. To prepare the scan file for your 3D CAD program, Roland includes a software package called 'Pixform Pro' which outputs STL polygon mesh or NURBS surface files.

For more advanced scanning, and customised output for animation or manufacturing, software packages such as Geometry Systems, Rapidform or Geomagic are recommended. These programs allow users to align complex scans and process the data to usable file formats for animation or manufacturing.
