A miniature version of the previously released Geomagic Capture system, the Mini is more economical, precise, and user-friendly.

 

“Capture Mini gives our customers yet another option to begin their journey through the digital thread,” said Calvin Hur, Vice President and General Manager, Geomagic Solutions, 3DS. “This is an easy, highly precise way to begin bringing the real world into digital design packages, then creating objects, 3D printing them, and scanning them for fidelity to CAD designs. It opens the door for creating 3D content of all kinds.”

  • Fine tuning for smaller parts
  • Full CAD integration
