The 3D laser-scanning device connects to the ZMorph 2.0 fabricator, where the digitalised 3D models can then be 3D printed. The scanner works with a rotational geometry capture mechanism and an algorithm, that converts the data into voxels. Objects up to a size of 30 x 30 x 30 cm can be scanned with a resolution of 0.1 to 0.5 mm in just seven minutes. Once the object is captured, the data can be edited in ZMorph’s Voxelizer software, where filters are applied to modify the thickness and smoothness to optimise the results.
ZMorph is going to officially release the scanner to the market in June 2015, but it can already be pre-ordered through their website for 1.600 zł excl. VAT (approx. $ 430/ € 410).
