1. NEW 3D DIGITIZING BUNDLE MAKES 3D DIGITIZING AFFORDABLE
TITLE: DESKTOP 3D-DIGITIZING BECOMES AFORDABLE
3D DIGITIZING BECOMES AFFORDABLE
Immersion Corporation and Mira Imaging Inc have formed a corporate
alliance intended to put the power of 3D Digitizing on to the
desktops of engineers, artists, animators, and scientists. The
integration of the PERSONAL DIGITIZER hardware platform from
Immersion Corporation and the HYPERSPACE software package from Mira
Imaging has resulted in a professional quality 3D digitizing and
modeling system for under $2000 complete. This package which is
available for both the MS-Windows and Apple-Macintosh platforms is
destined to take 3D digitizing out laboratory and put it on the
user's desktop where it belongs.
The PERSONAL DIGITIZER from Immersion Corporation,
The Personal Digitizer is a high quality 3D digitizing tool
which is ideal for engineers, designers, animators, graphic
artists, and virtual world builders. This small desktop unit allows
the profile of 3D objects to be traced with a pen-sized stylus and
stored as a data set in standard formats. The Immersion Personal
Digitizer interfaces with any computer system via a standard serial
port and reports data points with position resolution as high as 12
thousandths of an inch. The Immersion Personal Digitizer uses
digital sensors which are immune from the noise, metal interference,
and shadowing problems which plague other devices on the market.
This system was designed for fast and easy desktop 3D digitizing.
The compact system fits nicely on your desk and is completely self
calibrating. All you have to do to get started is take it out of
the box and turn it on.
HYPERSPACE software from Mira Imaging Inc.
HyperSpace is a digitizing and modeling software application
that uses the Immersion Personal Digitizer to quickly and easily
create 3D computer models of complex real-world objects. HyperSpace
software uses XYZ coordinate information from the Digitizer to
create 3D wireframe models which appear on the computer screen as
you work. You can set light sources and render the 3D image with
ease. The software allows you to edit points, edges, and surfaces
as you construct the 3D model. Once your model is complete, you can
export to a file. HyperSpace can produce data files in most
standard file formats including DXF, Wavefront, Symbolics,
Softimage, Alias, Super 3D, and Swivel 3D.
HyperSpace is more than just a digitizing package. It is also
a powerful modeling system. Modeling tools supported include
reflection, extrusion, surfaces of rotation, surfaces patches, auto-
smoothing, auto-welding of vertices, and auto-lofting of surfaces.
Models can be created as vertices, lines, polygons, and splines.
