Spherical Gantry Scanner (Model SG)

The Spherical Gantry was created for graphics research projects on light field rendering at Stanford University and may significantly impact the future of computer graphics. It is used as a light field digitizer as well as a tool to study reflective and transmissive characteristics of materials.

Spherical Gantry Scanner

Developed for Research in Light Field Rendering

The camera motion system covers a sphere excluding a 20 conical area at the object base mounting area. The camera axis has maximum rotation of 370 longitude and 340 latitude. The lamp has maximum rotation of 340 latitude. Maximum systematic motion error at any point in the volume is less than .04 longitude, .03 latitude and 0.15 mm (0.006") radius. The working volume is a 40.64 cm (16") sphere with a 22.7 Kg (50 lbs) object capacity.

The object rotation axis has endless revolution. The object axis has an additional uncalibrated 3-axis translation of 100 mm (3.94") on the X-axis, 100 mm (3.94") on the Y-axis, and 300 mm (11.81") on the Z-axis.

Nearly half of our business is custom engineering projects. If you want to purchase a system like this one or want Cyberware to develop a custom system to meet your particular requirements, please contact Cyberware Sales.
