The 3D Creator allows a user to create geometry on products that had no digital CAD documentation. It allows you to quickly and easily reverse engineer a product. Coupled with our other product offerings, you could, for example --- reverse engineer an automobile chair, surface and render the product showing new colors, add text or redesign the seam locations, and flatten it for cutting on a CNC cutter. You can do all of this in around 30 minutes. Of course, other applications would include using it as a large format measuring device to find hole locations in an autobody frame, making a model of the inside of a boat hull to fit casework against, digitizing stretchers or frame members of legacy designs that you would like to cut on CNC equipment, digitizing and lofting canvas for boat covers, etc. The possibilities are endless.
If you are creating a template, 3D Creator can do it for you and give you the CAD files at the same time.
There are 2 types of digitizers --- point cloud and discreet point scanners. The 3D Creator is a discreet point digitizer, meaning that it creates CAD points only where you tell it to by clicking a button on the stylus. This allows you to quickly create border geometry, the create surface geometry allowing you to surface the product and see a true representation of the product you are working on. There is typically no need to do additional CAD work on the project, because you collected only the data you needed... there is no decimation steps, cleanup of geometry etc.
The 3D Creator is designed to be portable and is shipped in an industrial wheeled travel case, allowing you to quickly move it from location to location depending on where your projects take you. It weighs 47 lbs and is just under the airline checked baggage limit, allowing economical transportation from site to site.
If you are interested in rapid, efficient reverse engineering of a wide variety of products or need to create CAD drawings from existing templates, the 3D Creator is a good match. Call us at 866-498-7498 for more information.
The 3D Creator package is affordable and easy to learn --- make production information quickly.

If another company sent you to our website to view demonstration videos or access brochures, you are working with the wrong dealer!!! We have created these movies and brochures in order to serve our customers and use the same technology for training purposes, allowing new users to be able to get training on THEIR type of work in a manner that lets them learn new techniques and concepts in small batches --- allowing them to continue to get their current products out the door in a timely manner. We offer both onsite and online training. Call us at 866-498-7498 for more information or specific demonstrations dealing with YOUR products.

3D Creator - sample movie files --- Boat canvas work, automotive seating and more. Digitize using 3D Creator to create your CAD file, surface it for viewing and rendering, and flatten it using AccuCut for cutting on CNC cutters.
sample of digitizing a boat hull for template for canvas boat covers. Utilizes the 3D Creator (for discrete data points) and Rhino software (for surfacing) - leaving you a file that is ready to be run into AccuCut (for flattening and cutting on CNC cutters). BOAT COVER DEMO - 62MB file.
AUTOMOTIVE SEATING DEMO - this demo is broken into 2 movies --- the FIRST MOVIE shows surfacing the digitized seat back for a new model car, the SECOND MOVIE shows flattening it and making it ready to send to a CNC cutter. (Each movie is around 5MB).
AccuCut - sample flattening files - flattening software --- shows stress and relief in shapes that it flattens for CNC cutting. This example takes a sample car seat back and flattens it - making it ready to send to a CNC cutter. This is a 5MB file. (This is the same file as used above in the automotive seating demonstrations).
