Seoul, South Korea - Aug 30, 2007, INUS Technology, Inc., the developer of Rapidform® 3D scanning software, today announced the release of a major upgrade to its XOS™/Scan software. Rapidform XOS™2/Scan, formerly a companion product to XOR/Redesign and XOV/Verifier, is now a standalone software application for the creation of mesh and surface models from 3D scan data.
"Previously, XOS was a tool for data capture and pre-processing. It was used in conjunction with XOR and XOV," stated Calvin J. Hur, INUS Technology's Vice President of Marketing and Global Sales. "Now it is a comprehensive software application that rivals competitive products yet costs much less. Rapidform XOS2 offers unprecedented price/performance."
With a four-fold increase in features and functions, XOS2 processes point cloud data, creates watertight meshes and generates high-quality NURBS surfaces. These functions were once exclusive to INUS's XOR/Redesign product, which is the only 3D scanning software application that builds editable, parametric solid models.
Simon (Seockhoon) Bae, CEO of INUS Technology, stated, "We see similarity with the CAD market, which has surface modelers, solid modelers and hybrids that combine both. Some companies need only surface modeling tools, while others require both surfacing and parametric solid modeling in one software package." He continued, "XOS2 is analogous to the surface modelers. It is for those that have no need to perform redesign on parametric solids. XOR is analogous to the hybrid modelers. It combines mesh and NURBS surface creation with parametric solids generation."
Hur stated, "Throughout the development process, we focused on the automation of tedious and time consuming tasks. For example, XOS2 has a new Mesh Buildup Wizard that processes raw, unaligned point clouds into complete, watertight meshes. For surface generation, there is an automatic mesh to NURBS feature." Hur also notes that XOS2 offers advanced curve and surface tools for developing precise, high-quality surface models.
XOS2 features LiveScan™, a real-time scan data acquisition tool. The LiveScan function connects Rapidform to leading 3D scanner technology from Creaform, Z Corporation, Konica Minolta, Perceptron, Kreon, Leica and Faro. For additional information on Rapidform XOS2/Scan, visit www.rapidform.com
