Whole Body Color 3D Scanner (Model WB4)

Just as Cyberware revolutionized computer graphics by allowing designers, animators, and researchers to work with true human faces, now Cyberware continues with whole human bodies.

In as little as 17 seconds, the Cyberware Whole Body Color 3D Scanner (Model WB4) captures the shape and color of the entire human body. The scanner's rapid acquisition speed freezes motion and makes it easy to scan many subjects or to capture different poses appropriate to the application at hand.

Whole Body Color 3D Scanner

Animators, anthropologists, and fashion designers can obtain accurate measurements and realistic alternatives to oversimplified or stylized forms with the Cyberware Whole Body Color 3D Scanner (Model WB4).

To capture the intricacies of the human body in one pass, the Cyberware Whole Body Color 3D Scanner (Model WB4) uses four scanning instruments mounted on two vertical towers. Each tower has a linear ball-bearing rail and servo motor assembly that moves the scanning instrument vertically. A platform structure supports the subject, while a separate frame provides alignment for the towers. With a person standing on the scanner's platform, the scanning instruments start at the person's head and move down to scan the entire body. The system is built to withstand shipping and repeated use without alignment or adjustment.

A primary goal of the WB4 is to acquire an accurate computer model in one pass. The use of multiple instruments improves accuracy on the sides of the body and in difficult-to-reach areas, such as under a person's arms. While the simple anthropometric pose gives the best results, Cyberware designed the WB4 to handle many different poses for a wide range of applications.

Complete Whole Body motion system, four WB optical heads with RGB texture map capability, USB interface, power supply, cabling, and online manuals. Also includes node-locked CyDir, Decimate, and CyScan scanning software, as well as file format translators. Bundle also includes on-site installation and training, one-year return-to-factory warranty, and technical support and software updates.

The WB4 scans a cylindrical volume 2 meters (79") high with a diameter of 1.2 meters (47"). These dimensions accommodate the vast majority of the human population. For even larger subjects, software enables the user to combine two or more scans quickly into a complete 3D color model.

Color information in 3D digitizing makes available nearly all the information a graphics application needs to fully describe an object. In addition to enhancing realism in graphic models, color denotes boundaries that are not obvious from shape alone. Color indicates surface texture and reflectance. And by marking an object's surface before digitizing, one can use color to transfer ideas from the object to the graphic model.
