Creaform Publishes Technical Paper on its Technological Fundamentals

High tech company shares R&D vision and basic principles on its use of optical sensors to enhance 3D dimensional measurements

Lévis, September 28, 2011 - Creaform, leader in portable 3D optical measurement technologies, today presents the technological fundamentals behind its 3D laser scanners product lines.

“As a developer of innovative metrology-grade measurement technologies, we have based our research and development work on well-defined and innovative technological principles, which has led to the release of several successful and highly accurate, reliable 3D optical measurement technologies over the years”, said Marco St-Pierre, vice- president, Innovation & Technologies at Creaform.

In a nutshell

3D optical sensor technologies can capture a huge number of data observations at very high rates, on the surface of objects. Based on that huge number of data observations, Creaform has developed a new framework to generate very accurate points. Thanks to this technological advancement and based on the concept of intelligent measurement, it is now possible to deliver a very accurate high density set of points, in real time and without noise.

Intelligent measurement process, data framework, real-time processing, calibration and acquisition model are a few keys elements of Creaform’s technological fundamentals that make for more accurate systems in 3D optical metrology.

Journal of the CMSC
Creaform’s president Charles Mony first introduced our technological fundamentals in a presentation he made during the 2011 Coordinate Metrology Society Conference last July in the United States. We received great feedback from our fellow metrologists, and the related technical paper was eventually selected by the Journal of CMSC’s editorial team to be published in the fall edition of the magazine - now available.
