Worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement technologies Creaform has announced the release of VXremote, its remote access software application.
The system has been produced with Creaform-certified rugged tablets (7 in. or 10 in. tablets) and increases user efficiency in the field by providing fast and easy remote access to VXelements, the 3D software platform that powers Creaform’s entire fleet of 3D scanning and measurement technologies.
VXremote enables users to better visualise real-time scanned data and change parameters—even when they are far from their laptops. VXremote is particularly useful when scanning large objects or when the scanning has to be performed in constrained or remote areas. Examples of reverse engineering and quality control projects with which the VXremote can provide remote scanning capabilities and improve efficiency - without sacrificing data quality - include:
- Airplanes, cars, boats, trains, trucks
- Refineries, pressure vessels and large diameter pipes
- Industrial installations
- Outdoor heritage, art, or natural objects
- Harness, rope, or platform access scanning
VXremote features a simplified process to connect the tablet to the computer and does not require users to have internet access to log into their accounts.
In addition, as VXremote is optimised with VXelements, it automatically diagnoses connection issues and provides detailed messages to help resolve issues. VXremote is also architecture-ready for future updates.
At the same time as the VXremote release, Creaform announced the availability of a brand-new 3D scanner external battery. This optional battery helps users to use Creaform's 3D scanners when access to electricity is unavailable or too far away, which ultimately increases mobility for outdoor applications as well as scanning large parts or products that are in remote locations.
