In version 9.0 of Creaform’s Vxelements 3D software platform, the user experience has been further improved and usability enhanced. For example, the Viewer Tool is used for sharing data. The platform can also be used with the company’s latest 3D scanners, allowing scans at different resolutions to better reproduce details, edges and strong curvatures. The new Flatten Mesh, Extrude Boundary and Extend Boundary functions allow for simplified post-processing of 3D scan data. In addition, the creation of robot paths has been simplified.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
