The MDX-20 Milling Machine & Scanner uses (RAPS) technology to eliminate the drawbacks of contact-based 3D scanners.
The MDX-15/20 scans a wide range of objects including soft objects like clay and fruit that conventional contact scanners find very difficult. It can even scan glass, impossible using optical scanners because the light beams passes through the object without detecting it.
Capable of scanning for reverse engineering and milling to create prototypes back to back, at production speeds. With an RS-232C cable, the MDX-15/20 plugs into a computer as easily as any desktop printer. Within minutes, even beginners can be scanning and milling.
The MDX-20 Portable Milling Machine And Scanner is ideal for a variety of product design tasks, including prototype modeling, rapid prototyping, jewelry & model making, and small lot production.
The MDX-15 and the MDX-20 are able to mill just as quickly and efficiently as any other milling machine on the market, but can also scan a wide range of objects including soft objects like clay and fruit that conventional contact-based scanners find very difficult. It can even scan glass, which would be impractical with contact based scanners and impossible using optical scanners because the light beams pass through the object without detecting it.
Roland Active Piezo Sensor (RAPS) technology eliminates the drawbacks of conventional contact-type 3D scanners. It scans data with hair-splitting precision, picking up even the most minute shape variations. Minimum scanning pitches for the MDX-15/20: X/Y-axis direction 0.002 to 0.197 inches settable in steps of 0.002 inches, Z-axis direction 0.001 inches.
