Lévis, Québec, Canada, 7 May 2019 – The professional-range and affordable 3D scanner developer peel 3d introduces peel 2, a new variant of its popular scanner, which features three cameras making it now possible to capture the colours of objects with an unprecedented level of scanning accuracy for a device in its price range.
Two years after breaking into the market with peel 1, a professional-grade budget-friendly scanner which is now successfully distributed in over 30 countries, peel 3d is back with an even more powerful device that’s just as easy to use as its predecessor.
“peel 2 pushes back all technical boundaries and redefines the concept of affordable 3D scanners. It will appeal as much to artists wishing to switch over to digital as it will to medical professionals wanting to scan the human body or mechanics working with existing components. It is by far the most comprehensive entry-level scanner on the market,” explains head of the peel 3d initiative François Leclerc.
Life in colour
Borrowed from high-end 3D scanners, peel 2’s new integrated colour capture functionality opens up a whole new world of possibilities for its users. They will finally be able to archive objects in high definition and in their original colours. Among other things, they can now capture design details and annotations found on an object, as well as monitor the progress and accuracy of the surface colouring.
The device also features:
- three cameras instead of just the one on the previous model, enabling it to capture increasingly finer details with enhanced resolution;
- a system that uses the texture of scanned objects to improve its ability to accurately position itself in space;
- the reviewed and improved peel 2.0 software offering more tools and functionalities in order to achieve even better results.
Priced at US $7,490, peel 2 is available online at peel-3d.com and from select retailers. Its predecessor, the peel 1, is still available for purchase at US $5,990.
The peel 3d solutions are powered by 3D scanning pioneer Creaform, a unit of AMETEK, Inc.
