New LPX-60 and upgraded LPX-600 create excellent reference geometry for
Lake Forest, CA January 5, 2007 Roland ASD’s new LPX-60 reverse
engineering solution dramatically improves the 3D-Scan-to-CAD process,
boosting quality and productivity.
With the touch of a button, the LPX-60 reverse engineering solution
generates detailed models with a 0.008-inch resolution. The LPX-60
automatically scans, aligns, merges planes, fills holes, and decimates 3D
models. It then exports complex organic shapes in point cloud, STL, PIX and
3DM data formats.
The LPX-60 joins the upgraded Roland LPX-600 3D laser scanner, which can now
also export complex organic shapes in point cloud, STL, PIX and 3DM data
formats. The LPX-600 scans objects up to 16 inches tall and 10 inches in
diameter, while the LPX-60 scans objects up to 12 inches tall and eight
inches in diameter. Both are ideal for consumer products, packaging,
jewelry, and a host of biomedical applications.
“Roland LPX-60 and LPX-600 create excellent reference geometry for
SolidWorks users,” said Efrat Ravid, solution partner program manager of
SolidWorks® Corporation. “Their highly automated scanning solution combined
with the new SolidWorks Office 2007 Premium ability to import and work with
scan data significantly boosts productivity for our customers.”
“Roland’s automated workflow can save SolidWorks® users two to five hours
per scanned object,” said Pedro Gonzalez, Roland ASD 3D applications
engineer. “SolidWorks users will be able to spend more time designing and
significantly less time cleaning up scanned data.”
The LPX-60 has a list price of $7,995. The LPX-600 has a list price of
$11,995. Leasing options are available for all Roland products.
