PORTLAND, Ore. December 11, 2015 - Digital Scan 3D, an innovative 3D scanner and software integration company, today announces that it is bringing the latest in professional-grade 3D scanning technology to the High Desert Maker Mill, a community makerspace for prototyping and fabrication located in Bend, Oregon, which has the third fastest overall job gains among small metros nationwide. As part of the companies' joint effort to provide Central Oregon with access to the latest in innovative technology, the Maker Mill today opens the newest location of Artec's Shapify Booth.
With this new Shapify Booth location, residents of Bend will now be able to preserve their most cherished memories from graduations to marriages and pregnancies as high-quality 3D figurines. Once inside the booth, four wide-view, high-resolution Artec 3D scanners rotate around a person to capture them from all angles in just 12 seconds. These professional-grade scanners are able to capture even the minutest details like the writing on your shirt. A digital model is then produced in a matter of minutes that can be 3D printed into a full-color, mini-me figurine. This "Shapie," which can be picked up upon your next visit or mailed to your home, makes a truly personalized memento or a heartfelt gift for friends and relatives during the holiday season.
"It's great to see 3D technology making its way into the hands and hearts of even more consumers," said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. "Our Shapify Booth is a natural way for the general public to experience the power of the most advanced 3D scanning technology available. It provides the same level of accuracy as our product line of professional handheld scanners, which are used for numerous preservation, manufacturing and industrial applications."
As part of its collaboration with High Desert Maker Mill, Digital Scan 3D will also be making Artec's professional-grade, handheld 3D scanners, the Eva, Spider and Space Spider, available to the designers, engineers and entrepreneurs working out of the makerspace. This will allow young companies and individuals starting out within the manufacturing and product development sectors access to state-of-the-art 3D scanning tools for reverse engineering and advanced prototyping.
"Oregon is becoming a mecca for makers" said Richman Siansimbi of Digital Scan 3D. "We know firsthand how vital the right tools are for the engineering and design processes, and we're thrilled to support the passions of hobbyists, entrepreneurs and business leaders alike by enabling them access to Artec's line of professional products."
"We're extremely excited to have Digital Scan 3D and its resources behind us as we begin this venture," said Scot Brees, Board President of High Desert Maker Mill. "By making Artec's industry-leading line of 3D scanning products available through our makerspace, we're putting cutting-edge tools into the hands of entrepreneurs and startups that have the vision to innovate, but lack the resources to make their ideas a reality. What's more, with tools like these, what used to take days now takes minutes, which results in streamlined processes and reduced costs."
