In contrast to most 3D scanning technologies that were originally designed to scan inanimate objects for reverse engineering application, 3dMD developed its highly-advanced motion-3D/4D capture technology from the outset to achieve the ultra-fast capture speeds (1-120fps) required to image human subjects with sub-millimeter 3D shape information precision.
Advanced Technology. 3dMD develops and sells a proven and verified technology to capture dynamic-4D anatomical shape information of a subject’s natural physical movements (1-120 3D frames per second) for applications demanding textured, 3D dense-surface image precision such as Healthcare, Computer Vision/Perception, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Wearable-tech, Human Factors, Apparel, Anthropometrics, AR/VR/XR, Biometric Enrolment, etc. With an efficient subject workflow suitable for recruiting thousands of subjects, 3dMD systems capture progressive sequences of ‘near- ground truth’ 3D images of subjects, whether it is full body, face, head, hands, or foot.
Synchronized with a wide range of third-party devices, 3dMD generates high-volume 3D/4D training sets with anatomical fidelity to support the latest computer vision, AI, and XR/AR/VR innovations… a market that has recently been labelled as the Metaverse.
Proven Customer Track Record. With 7,500 3D/4D cameras worldwide, 3dMD has established its robust 3D/4D capture technology as a workhorse for building relevant population databases in the most advanced fields of research. The 3dMD customer community has and continues to publish thousands of peer-reviewed investigative research papers enumerating many aspects of the human condition, articulation, and performance… see Customer Research.
