SGCentral™ is a user-friendly application that lets you configure scan settings, speed and resolution for ShapeGrabber scanning systems. It is included with every ShapeGrabber 3D scanner.
This versatile application has a number of features and controls to help you customize scanning parameters to suit your particular project. For example, if you want to modify the automatically selected parameters, SGCentral™ allows you to set the number of scans and the angular position of the rotary plate, and use the motion controls and laser settings to define scanning regions. It also give you control over the resolution detail and depth of field in order to speed up scanning performance.
Once specific selections have been made for a given part or project, SGCentral™ allows you to save the configuration in a file for future use. The next time you scan this part, all you do is load the file and hit the scan button. The preview window lets you see the point cloud model being built as the scans are being collected.
File formats supported are .3pi (ShapeGrabber), .gpd (Geomagic), .pif (Polyworks), .stl (Polygon), xyz (ASCII generic), and others.
