Artec 3D unveils ‘world’s first high-speed full-body 3D scanner’ in Dubai
Scanning booth debuts at Dubai Entertainment Amusement and Leisure Show 2015
Artec 3D, specialist in 3D scanners, debuted what it claims is "the world's first high-speed full-body 3D scanner for 3D portraits" at Dubai Entertainment Amusement and Leisure Show (DEAL), which began on 14th April and runs for three days.
Artec's Shapify Booth is composed of four wide-view high-resolution 3D scanners, which rotate around the subject. The booth also integrates a lighting system, a high-speed processor and 3D modelling software.
According to Artec, the scan takes 12 seconds. Within 5 minutes a detailed 3D model is ready and in 15 minutes the high-quality 3D-printable file is completed.
The high-precision scanners are used in the aerospace, medical and manufacturing industries to help with quality control. They are designed to "capture even the slightest specifics, down to wrinkles on clothes", according to Artec.
Aimed principally at entertainment, the booth is intended for use in venues such as theme parks and shopping malls.
"We are very excited to present our Shapify booth in the United Arab Emirates," said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. "The Shapify booth has been significantly popular in Asia, the US and western Europe, and today we are thrilled to be sharing our 3D technologies with consumers in the Middle East.
"Although 3D technology, specifically 3D printing, is widely heard of in the news, it has not reached the stage where it is easily accessible to the average consumer. We aim to change this and believe the Shapify Booth can become many people's first interaction with 3D technologies. Through Shapify booth, we also endeavour to showcase the opportunities that 3D scanning and printing technology presents to enterprises and companies in the Middle East".
Artec 3D is participating at DEAL with partner Jacky's Business Solutions.
"We [have been] the authorised partner for Artec 3D in the GCC for over a year and we've started marketing Artec handheld scanners," said Ashish Panjabi, COO, Jacky's Business Solutions. "We are glad to collaborate for their first Shapify Booth in the UAE. We are optimistic that ‘Shapie' 3D versions of your body will take the ‘selfie' concept to the next level. As 3D printing and scanner suppliers, we are in a position to give a complete proposition to clients in the region."
