The LPX-1200, Dr Picza 3 and Pixform Pro software are a perfect combination for 3d scanning and reverse engineering.

The LPX-1200 is a fully automated 3d scanner. You put the item you want to scan in the scanner and close the door. When you press the power button the LPX-1200 goes through an automatic calibration sequence. After it is done it is ready to scan, nothing else required. The LPX-1200 is the highest resolution 3d scanner that Roland manufacturers. When you compare it to other laser scanners the quality of scan is typically as good as or better then 3d scanners that are 3 times its price. The reason it has such a high quality scan is because the movement system Roland built for the scanning head and the over all bulk of the frame of the scanner. The drive system uses a ball screw and linear rail. The bulk mentioned is the frame that is like frames on there CNC machines which require high strength and no flexing while milling. Its hard to see from the pictures (I added one to try to point out the quality of the frame. This scanner although it is small it weighs 77lbs. This frame and drive systems keeps the scanner from having any movement while 3d scanning. Because of that you get extremely high quality 3d scans.

How can you tell the difference between a quality 3d scan and a poor 3d scan. Look for the orange peel effect on the 3d scan surface in the model. That orange peel effect is caused by noise while 3d scanning. Companies that make cheap 3d scanners try to remove that noise using software and it works to some degree. But anytime you remove scan data you also lose tolerances. When you look at the pictures in gallery look at the high quality surface finish of those scans. In the leather you can see stretch marks where the leather was formed. Look at all the texture detail that was picked up on the toy dinosaur. This is the kind of things that makes this 3d scanner different then cheap 3d scanners.

The LPX-1200 is fully automated and what they mean by that is that after you set the settings in the software you press scan and walk away. You do not hold the scanner in your hand and take scans over and over again, check software go back and scan again check software ect.... The best way to really explain this is it does the same thing as a handheld scanner but is more like a 3d scanning robot. The scanning head moves up and down and the plate rotates the item being scanned. So it is fully automated.

In Roland's Dr Picza 3 scanning software - you have 2 modes of operation for the automation/scanning. You can tell it do do a rotary scan which is good for a bottle or cylindrical type objects. In this case it scans the item while it rotates. It does this really fast and scans the items from top to bottom. The second type of scanning is better for square or non cylindrical objects. It is called plane scanning. The way it works is it scans the object from top to bottom then rotates a set angle like 90 degrees then scans another plane top to bottom and then rotates again. The user can tell it to add more planes to scan at any angle. For example if there is some detail you want to scan on an angle that is between 2 planes like holes at a 45 degree angle.

Once you have finished scanning you can review the 3d scan and then rescan any areas at a high resolution to pickup more detail or add additional planes if required. Once you have scanned a few objects you get the hang of how to set it up and then you can usually scan an object by setting the parameters walking off and coming back to a finished scan.

The automation is what makes this scanner so attractive. Imagine having 50 items to scan a month and having to set there and hold the scanner in your hand go up and down the whole time.

After you have finished 3d scanning you bring the scan into the Pixform Pro software to finish preparing the 3d scan file. This software will allow you to fill any holes that were left un-scanned, smooth any surfaces if you want to remove textures or for examples scratches to a surface. Once the mesh model is complete it can be used in cad software for designing an item to match or fit next to it. You can be 3d print it. The mesh model can be scaled to a larger or smaller size and then 3d printed. It can be measured for volume or size for inspection. You can modify it to make it an original piece of work.

If you need to have the model as a parametric model that is where the Pixform Pro reverse engineering software comes into play. You can open up the reverse engineering workbench in the software and create a true solid model from the 3d scan. Then other CAD programs like Solidworks will recognize the solid model and features. Pixform Pro is an OEM version of Rapidform/Geomagic.

This is a professional 3d scanner and would be used by companies who need to create 3d objects that have complex features that you can not measure with a pair of calipers.

Can I take a larger items and cut it up and scan it? Will software put it back together?
Yes you can cut up an object and scan each piece individually and the software will realign them.

Can I scan an item like a horse toy and then make it smaller to make a piece of jewelry circumventing the problem of designing a horse in 3d cad software?
Yes this is a great use for the scanner. 3D scan objects that would be hard to 3d model and then scale them smaller for a different purpose. Scan of toy horse is made into a small charm for necklace.

Can our students 3d scan a computer mouse and then make changes and 3d print the new design?
Yes this is another really good use of the scanner to make customized products or 1 off products.

Can I use the scanner to 3d scan a part of a pump that has complex surfaces, once scanned create slices to get contours so we can bring into our cad software to make a new parametric model?
Yes you can use the software to slice a model to get contours to have the curves you need to make lofts in a 3d cad software.

Can I scan a golf club and remove some of the features (logo) and make some changes to face angle?
Yes you can remove things like logos from the file and make changes to the design.

Can I 3d scan a small mold that is damaged fix the area and then use it to cnc new mold?
Yes this is another great application take a part that is damaged 3d scan it and remove the damaged area and either 3d print it or CNC a new one.

Superior Scans
The LPX-1200 uses an advanced non-contact laser sensor to quickly scan 3D objects with a 0.0039 inch scanning resolution or bigger. The combination of precision optics and motion control with a rigid cast aluminum frame produces high quality scans with minimal surface noise. While using both rotary and plane scanning modes for optimum performance including the ability to capture undercuts.

Non-Contact Advantage
Scanned objects remain in pristine condition, thanks to the LPX-1200's non-contact laser scanning technology. Scanning restrictions are limited only to the technology itself. Glossy, clear and dark-colored objects will not scan effectively unless painted red, white or yellow in order to be "read" by the laser.

Model Editing Software
Bundled with the LPX-1200, Pixform Pro reverse modeling software is compatible with all popular CAD/CAM programs. Pixform Pro can align, merge, fill holes, decimate, remesh, and translate polygon surfaces into NURB surfaces. It supports a wide array of data output formats including DXF, STL, WRL, 3DM and IGES. IGES is the NURBs file format used by popular CAD/CAM software such as SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor, Fusion 360, Mastercam, Delcam, FreeForm and Rhino.

Pixform Pro Features
Increase workflow with more efficient 3D model editing. Users can merge scans for increased quality, change the shape around curved surfaces, sharpen edges, extend shapes, add thickness and perform Boolean operations on polygon surfaces.

Dual Scan Modes
Rotary and Plane Scanning Modes offer the versatility to scan an expansive array of objects. In rotary mode, the LPX-1200 quickly scans an entire object on its fully integrated rotating table. In plane scanning mode, it scans as many as six different planes to capture side cuts and cavities.

Easy to Use
Simple to set up and use with a USB connection and one-button operation. Bundled Dr. PICZA3 operating software provides new point, line and curve scanning functions for automated surface lofting.
