3D Systems attended the LMT Lab Day on February 22-23 in Chicago. LMT Lab Day is the largest show in North America for the dental laboratory community. In 2012 there were 3,100 people in attendance who came from 47 states and 49 countries. 3D Systems displayed a full range of dental and medical solutions for practitioners and professionals in the field.  One of the printers displayed was the ProJet 3510 MP and the ProJet 3510 DPwhich is used to build a variety of dental models and appliances.

Michael Kintner from 360 Heros on the SyFy Network stopped by the 3D Systems booth at CES last month to demonstrate how he used the 3DTouch printer to make his own creation. He created what he calls a 360 Heroes rig that allows him to attach video cameras all around the 3D printed rig. This then permits them to record 360 degrees of video using GoPro video cameras. When on a bicycle, this 3D printed object with the video cameras attached allows him to see a 360 by 180 degree view of his surroundings. Once the GoPro cameras are in the shape of a cube, they are turned on by a remote camera system simultaneously and are able to capture a unique 3D video. Watch the video above to see this amazing invention in action!

GoModel

We just revealed today the availability of Go!MODEL, an easy to use, but powerful, 3D reverse engineering and design tool. This was created in partnership with portable 3D measurement solutions specialist Creaform, specifically for their newly released Go!SCAN 3D portable scanner. Using the Go!MODEL and Go!SCAN 3D package, users can capture physical objects and directly model high quality renderings and designs that are ideal for 3D printing. Powered by 3D Systems’ Rapidform platform, Go!MODEL offers easy to use and affordable, professional mesh editing capabilities with automatic NURBS surfacing utility and functionality that is specifically tailored for use with Creaform’s Go!SCAN 3D. Go!MODEL Capabilities Include:

- Scan editing and optimization: Go!MODEL delivers powerful tools to prep scanned objects for printing and other uses.

    - Automation: Go!MODEL’s wizards complete frequently used scan processing steps with just a few clicks.

      - Intelligence: Decimation reduces file size by half with almost no loss of accuracy plus curvature-based hole filling; Go!MODEL is packed with intelligent tools.

        - NURBS surfacing: Go!MODEL produces highly accurate NURBS surfaces with the Go!SCAN 3D, including use surfaces in applications like CAD and CAM that cannot handle high definition meshes.
