3rdTech Announces SceneVision-3D Version 3.1

 New 3D Capture and Model-building Software Produces Higher Quality Models with Greater Ease-of-Use

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., June 23, 2005 – 3rdTech announced today the Version 3.1 release of its groundbreaking 3D scene capture and creation software, SceneVision-3D. Available immediately to current SceneVision-3D users, the new software incorporates a scanning ‘wizard’ and new model-building functions, making it easier than ever before to capture scenes in 3D and to reconstruct accurate, photo-realistic, computer graphics models.

The DeltaSphere-3000 3D Scene Digitizer captures millions of 3D measurements and scores of associated color images of a crime or accident scene. The new ‘scanning wizard’ in SceneVision-3D v3.1 simplifies the scanning procedure by providing a simplified routine for capturing data, and automatic naming and organization of all captured data. The new software makes the system easier to learn, easier to use, and speeds up the entire scene-capture process.

In addition, SceneVision-3D now incorporates ‘intelligent model simplification’. These new, automated functions, create high-quality, color, computer graphics models with very little effort.  New editing capabilities have also been added for combining multiple scans into a single 3D model.

“Our goal is to make 3D scene capture as easy to learn and use as standard 2D digital photography”, said Nick England, President of 3rdTech. “The new SceneVision-3D release takes a giant step toward that goal.”

SceneVision-3D v3.1 will be shown, for the first time, at the International Association for Identification’s 90th International Educational Conference, August 9-10 in Dallas .
