Seeing your ideas take shape has always been the dream of the 3D designer. Today's powerful, lower-cost CAD workstations and software help make this dream a reality as never before. The reality is, however, it can still take days or weeks to go from a CAD drawing to having a part, mold, or prototype. But not any longer. Now Roland's MDX-20 and MDX-15 put you in control with the power of 3D scanning and milling on your desktop.

Easy-to-use and compatible with many popular 3D CAD software programs, the MDX-20/15 is an affordable, all-in-one scanning and milling device, perfect for a variety of product design tasks, from model and jewelry making to molds, rapid prototyping, small lot production and package design. Use it to test and modify your designs, reducing errors, time and cost.

4. 3D Scanning and Milling in One

The MDX-20/15 is the culmination of over ten years of innovative product development in scanning and milling by Roland engineers. Utilizing innovative Roland Active Piezo Sensor (R.A.P.S.) technology, the MDX-20/15 is a precision 3D scanner, capable of scanning objects at 4 to 15 mm per second with a resolution of up to 0.05 mm (0.002"). Selecting the sensor unit with the spindle turns the MDX-20/15 into a powerful CNC mill capable of cutting light metals, including aluminum and brass.
