Structured-light 3-D scannerFARO — a supplier of 3-D measurement and imaging solutions for 3-D design — has introduced the Cobalt Design family of structured-light scanner products.

Structured-light scanning technology uses projected light patterns with a camera system to capture large areas at once; this significantly reduces the data capture time and delivers results quickly.

Combined with the recently introduced RevEng software platform, Cobalt Design ( delivers a one-stop digital design solution that allows small and medium-size objects to be scanned with precision and in colour, with multiple levels of resolution.

It is the first colour-structured light scanner from FARO specifically developed for design applications.

It addresses a variety of design requirements, including reverse engineering, prototype design, packaging design, digital cataloguing and even jewellery and fashion design.

Design professionals can set up scan parameters once and then proceed to scan similar objects with the push of a button.

Several pre-configured scanned and meshing settings are available by default, thereby ensuring that results are repeatable and reliable.

Furthermore, the use of the integrated rotational axis ‘dramatically’ improves the 3-D scanning process by automatically rotating a part up to 360deg as it is being scanned.

Cobalt Design can capture millions of 3-D measurement points in 1sec — with up to 3.1-mega-pixel accuracy for small to medium-size complex objects.

Moreover, precise and high-quality textured scans can be captured in colour and delivered as realistic images that enable even more detailed representations of geometric surfaces and finishes in ‘true to life’ 3-D colour.

Be seen in all the right places!
