LPX-600 3D Laser Scanner

Turn Concepts into Reality

The ever increasing demand for high quality product design places real pressure on designers to visualise their concepts quickly, accurately and above all cost-effectively.

The Roland range of digital workbench tools and 3D scanning technology enable a wide range of materials to be modelled and a concept to be proven in a material before committing to a full production version. By inexpensively turning concepts into three-dimensional prototypes our range enables multiple concept iterations to be modelled quickly and in a variety of materials.

By keeping the process in-house you are able to produce tangible prototypes to test ergonomics, fit, form, function and pattern-making, with the obvious benefits of eliminating costly outsourcing and maintaining the security of proprietary concepts - all of which makes perfect business sense.

PrototypesRapid Prototyping Made Easy

Many product designers and engineers who are researching additive RP systems as a way to test form, fit and function of their prototypes may be unaware that there is a better, cheaper, faster solution. Roland subtractive RP systems (SRP™) produce form models faster than any 3D printer on the market and easier than any other CNC mill on the market. That’s because Roland offers a complete software/hardware solution that combines the ease of use of 3D printers with the benefits of CNC-machined parts.

MDX-40A and MDX-540 series milling machines cost significantly less than 3D printers while producing precision prototypes out of a wider variety of non-proprietary materials. A larger selection of materials makes it easier to create prototypes, including UV resistance, bending strength, surface hardness and electrical conductivity. This is particularly important for biomedical and food processing products, where biocompatibility and chemically inert properties are critical. Roland SRP solutions come with SRP Player, powerful, easy to use CAM software that delivers the speed, tight tolerances and exceptionally smooth surface finishes required for prototyping and customised rapid manufacturing applications.

PrototypesFunctional Prototypes

Mill functional prototypes using a wide range of materials that additive systems do not support. Users can choose from popular engineered plastics such as ABS, Acetal and Nylon, as well as acrylic and polycarbonate for transparent parts and a variety of woods and metals including aluminium, brass and copper. Compared to additive RP systems, Roland desktop devices produce functional prototypes that are better for structural, thermal and electrical testing.

  • LPX-600 3D Laser Scanner

    Stop wasting hours cleaning up scanned data! With the touch of a button, LPX Series 3D laser scanners can generate a detailed CAD model with a 0.008-inch resolution and a watertight surface. Bundled LPX EZ Studio reverse engineering software automatically scans, aligns, merges planes, fills holes, and decimates 3D models. LPX EZ Studio then exports them as point cloud data that can be easily used directly in SolidWorks® 2007 Office Premium and other CAD software.

    Feature Summary

    • Automated 3D scanning at the touch of a button
    • Scanning volume: 406.4mm (16”) tall and 254mm (10”) in diameter
    • 0.2mm (0.008”) maximum scanning resolution
    • Bundled LPX EZ Studio reverse engineering software
    • Exports CAD models in point cloud, STL, PIX and 3DM data formats
    • Attractive, compact design for office environments
    • Countless CAD/CAM Applications

      CAD/CAM ScanThe LPX-600 scans objects up to 406.4mm (16 inches) tall and 254mm (10 inches) in diameter enabling designers to scan complex, organic shapes in minutes. CAD/CAM applications include hand-held consumer products, blister package design, hand-sculpted characters for feature animation, and face models for anaplastologists.

    • Superior Scans

      ScanningThe LPX Series uses advanced non-contact laser sensors to quickly generate precise models with 0.008 inch scanning resolutions. The combination of precision laser optics and motion control within a rigid enclosure lets design engineers produce high quality scans with minimal surface noise.

    • Bundled Software

      Bundled Roland LPX EZ Studio typically saves designers two to five hours on every scanned object. The reverse engineering software automatically scans, aligns, merges planes, fills holes, and decimates 3D models. It exports CAD models in a wide range of data formats, including point cloud, STL, PIX and 3DM.

      Point cloud data is used directly in SolidWorks® 2007 Office Premium and other CAD software. STL files are used by the industry’s most popular rapid prototyping systems, including those manufactured by Roland, 3D Systems, Stratasys, Z-Corp and Solidscape.

      The LPX-600 also comes with Dr. PICZA3 scanning software, which allows users to scan an entire object or capture a specific area. The software can also export poly-line or point cloud scanning data as a 3D CAD file.

    • Optional Software

      Pixfrom ProOptional Pixform Pro reverse modeling software offers advanced data editing. Pixform Pro can align, merge, fill holes, decimate, remesh, and translate polygon surfaces into NURB surfaces. The software can also merge scans for increased quality, change the shape around curved surfaces, sharpen edges, extend shapes, add thickness and perform Boolean operations on polygon surfaces. It supports a wide range of data output formats including DXF, STL, WRL, 3DM and IGES.

    • Dual Scan Modes

      Dual ScanRotary and Plane Scanning Modes offer the versatility to scan an expansive array of objects. In rotary mode, the LPX-600 quickly scans an entire object on its fully integrated rotating table. In plane scanning mode, it scans as many as six different planes to capture side cuts and cavities.

    • Non-Contact Advantage

      Scanned objects remain in pristine condition, thanks to the LPX Series non-contact laser scanning technology. To scan glossy, clear and dark-colored objects, simply paint them red, white or yellow. The LPX-600 will capture every detail!

    • Easy to Use

      Easy to UseWith its USB connection and one-button operation, the LPX-600 is ready to use within minutes after opening the box. Once up and running, the 3D laser scanner will save designers hours of manual reverse engineering work. Engineers can capture incredibly detailed surfaces without any special training.
