    Scan Your World with Sense for the Mac

    All Mac users can now enjoy the Sense at home 3D Scanner as much as the PC user has been doing for a few months now. Released in late 2013, the Sense 3D scanner is Fully integrated with Cubify.com and the Cube 3D printer, the Sense allows scans to upload directly for 3D printing, either at home or through the cloud. It releases STL files and PLY files.

    Mac users can jump for joy with the newly announced support for 3D Systems.

    The Sense is the first 3D scanner designed for easy consumer use and optimized for 3D printing. Catching moments in 3D is now easy and fun, and costs just $399.

    The Sense software V1.1 features Mac support and other feature upgrades including improved scan tracking and stability, upgraded auto-enhancement for correct brightness and color.

    These features build on the very easy-to-use interface that allows anyone to focus, crop, delete and share color 3D data. Sense printables can be sent to Cube® and CubeX™ 3D printers, or directly uploaded to Cubify.com for cloud printing in a range of materials, including Ceramix, Aluminix and Clear.

    Have fun with using SENSE on MAC

    Hexagon Ships ROMER Absolute Arm for Measurement

    Hexagon Ships ROMER Absolute Arm for Measurement

    Hexagon Metrology logoNORTH KINGSTOWN, RI, Apr 8, 2014 – Hexagon Metrology today announced the next generation of the ROMER Absolute Arm. The enhanced portable measuring arm features optimized ergonomics, a new wrist design, and greater stability to create a better user experience while further reducing operator fatigue. The portable CMM provides tactile and non-contact dimensional measurements in the aerospace, automotive, military, forming, tube bending and casting industries for applications requiring inspection, on-machine measurement, fixture and jig set-ups, and reverse engineering. Hexagon Metrology’s ROMER Absolute Arm is available immediately worldwide. Detailed product information and technical specifications can be found at http://www.HexMet.us/ROMER.

    040814_HexagonMetrology1The 6-axis portable measuring arm introduces a new wrist designed around the complex contours of the human hand. The new wrist on the 7-axis Absolute Arm has a more natural feel with rotation centered around the system’s probe. Both systems feature a lockable, Zero-G counterbalance which improves arm movement, protects it from hard falls, and enables single-handed operation. In addition to upgraded ergonomic features, the 6-axis wrist includes a built-in work light and digital camera. Haptic feedback vibrates the wrist and warns the user of possible harmful conditions, making it ideal for noisy shop-floor environments. The arm also features a redesigned tube inspection configuration for quick inspections and reverse engineering of bend paths. The 7-axis arm is designed to accept an integrated or external, high performance laser scanner at any time. It may also be purchased without the scanner and used as a hard probing system. Both arms do not require recalibration after a probe or scanner change.

    “With this next iteration of the ROMER Absolute Arm, we have created a versatile and mobile measurement tool that combines a state-of-the-art user experience with our mature and industry-proven solutions,” said Eric Hollenbeck, product manager for Hexagon Metrology. “The arm’s optimized ergonomics, thermally stable construction, reliable encoders and plug-and-play probes deliver a new level of performance, reliability and efficiency in the portable CMM marketplace.”

    All ROMER measuring arms are available with PC-DMIS Touch Portable, a revolutionary measurement software that utilizes high-resolution Multi-Touch display technology on a tablet PC. The PC-DMIS Touch interface is particularly well suited to ROMER portable arm users and further complements their experience.
