Geomagic to Reveal Automated Kinect-to-3D Print App at major Consumer Event
MORRISVILLE, N.C. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 8, 2012 — Geomagic®, the leading provider of 3D software for creating and inspecting digital models of physical objects, will be the technology behind the Kinect®-to-3D print app that is part of 3D Systems’ Cubify.com launch at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2012), January 10th--13th 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV. This application, at an early stage of development, will demonstrate the automated process of 3D imaging and 3D printing for consumers. For CES it enables an instant 3D image of visitors at the event to be automatically turned into a 3D model and printed out on a 3D printer during the show.
3D Systems plans to unveil Cubify.com, a vivid 3D create-and-make experience with intuitive 3D apps, rich 3D printable content libraries of games, puzzles and collections. Cubify.com turns any mobile device, tablet or Kinect device into a powerful, digital canvas that unleashes creativity and brings ideas to life in 3D. Compelling content creation, capture and customization apps make it simple and fun to personalize creations and print them at home on a new Cube™ 3D printer or have them printed using 3D Systems’ online Cubify service. Now everyone can unleash their creativity and earn money by marketing their own 3D creations or by developing new apps for Cubify.com.
Geomagic’s Kinect-to-3D print technology is fresh out of Geomagic’s R&D division, as an application built on top of Geomagic Studio®, Geomagic’s flagship software best known for its simple user experience and powerful processing tools for taking 3D scan data into design and fabrication. 3D data taken using this method can also be used for other purposes including design, testing, innovation, archive and prototyping.
Come to watch the Kinect-to-3D print in action, and get a model of yourself at CES at the 3D Systems’ booth # 13345.
