Roland Introduces the LPX-600 3D Laser Scanner for Easy, Professional 3D Scanning at the Touch of a Button


Hamamatsu, Japan, November 30, 2005 – Roland DG Corporation today announced the new LPX-600, a complete laser scanning package including software that easily scans a variety of objects to generate accurate 3D digital data. The LPX-600 is the industry's most user-friendly professional 3D laser scanner, with the entire scanning process controlled by a single button. Conventional 3D scanners, by comparison, require the advanced skills of experienced professionals to operate. "The LPX-600 3D Laser Scanner is an exciting innovation for the 3D CAD/CG industry, bringing unmatched ease-of-use to an otherwise complex process," said Toshi Yahiro, Roland DG 3D Product Manager. "Now, for the first time, anyone can easily generate high-quality 3D digital data. In fact, the LPX-600 is as easy to use as a flatbed scanner. Yet it delivers professional results, automatically filling holes and deleting polygons where needed for smooth surfaces and easy editing."

Scan your object in three easy steps

With the LPX-600, scanning is completed in just three easy steps:
1.Position your object on the LPX-600 work table
2.Press the "Preview" button to confirm scanning time
3.Press the "Scan" button to begin scanning

Easy-to-use Roland LPX EZ Studio scanning software included

Roland LPX EZ Studio scanning software controls the entire process from the initial LPX scan to the creation of 3D CAD/CG data in a range of file formats including STL (Standard Tessellated Language, industry standard 3D CAD format), GSF (Geometry Systems native file format) and 3DM (Rhinoceros file format). EZ Studio automatically eliminates extra polygons and fills holes for smooth, continuous surfaces.* Roland LPX EZ Studio is compatible with Windows® XP/2000/Me/98 SE (Second Edition).
