Imaging's Matrox GatorEye GigE Vision industrial
camera now offers 3D capabilities. For
triangulation-based 3D digitizing applications, the Matrox GatorEye extracts
the laser line in an image to sub-pixel accuracy and produces the corresponding
positional depth/height array. Only the resulting array is transmitted, which
lightens the load on the Gigabit Ethernet link and PC. The PC can then focus on
other tasks, including 3D measurement and analysis. The industrial camera
has a IP67 rating and is designed for harsh environments.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
