Shapegrabber Ai820

Large Capacity Fully Automated 3D Laser Scanning

ShapeGrabber Ai820 is a large-capacity fully-automated 3D scanning system for metrology-grade applications, perfect for large parts. This floor model 3D scanner is designed to serve a wide variety of parts in minutes with a high density of data points. 

SG508 scanheads can be fitted to the standard vertical measurement axis, and optionally to the horizontal axis, and can be used individually or in combination to collect data. Each scanhead can obtain more than 1,500,000 points per second.


ShapeGrabber Ai820 Features 

Metrology-Grade 3D Scanning Perfect for measuring intricate shapes in a range of colors and finishes. Excels in applications like rapid prototyping, manufacturing, quality control, and reverse engineering.

User-Friendly Operation
Initiate scans with a single click, ensuring consistent measurement results by any operator. Scanning parameters are easily selected and saved, eliminating the need for writing special code.

ShapeGrabber Scanheads

Laser line scanning, an advanced non-contact and non-destructive technology, employs a 3D optical sensor, also known as a scanhead, to digitally capture the size and shape of objects using a line of laser light. This method sets itself apart from other OGP laser scanning technologies, which utilize a laser point sensor traversing across a surface. While both techniques generate "point clouds" of data from an object's surface, laser line scanners accomplish this faster and typically with a higher point density.



ShapeGrabber Software
SGCentral is an intuitive application that empowers users to customize scan settings, speed, and resolution for ShapeGrabber scanning systems. This feature-rich application is bundled with every ShapeGrabber 3D scanner.

 SGCapture (Optional)

ShapeGrabber Software
ShapeGrabber SGCapture, seamlessly integrated as a plug-in for SmartProfile, empowers users to acquire and evaluate scan data within a unified software package. SmartProfile stands out as the preferred solution for the tolerance evaluation of 3D scanner data, employing proprietary algorithms to minimize measurement uncertainty and generate CMM-like data sets. 

 PolyWorks (Optional)

ShapeGrabber 3D scanners use InnovMetric Software’s PolyWorks point cloud processing software for quality control measurement or to create accurate models from scanner data. PolyWorks software is used by tens of thousands of users in the automotive, aerospace, medical, and other manufacturing industries. ShapeGrabber is a longtime worldwide partner of Innovmetric.

ShapeGrabber scanners with PolyWorks software can take advantage of a plug-in that configures scanning parameters directly within the PolyWorks interface. Once an inspection routine has been established, scanning is triggered automatically during subsequent runs. Scanned points are captured within the application. No need to switch between applications or manage external scan files.

Plug-in Highlights:

  • Configure and trigger scans directly within PolyWorks
  • See scan data as its captured in real time
  • Enables one-step inspection routines from scanning to results
  • Facilitates guided inspections for more complex parts requiring part re-orientation

 Geomagic (Optional)

Performs Analysis and Measurement on the Shapegrabber 3D Scan Data, or to Transform Laser Scan Data Into Highly Accurate Digital Models.

Geomagic’s 3D-data processing software from 3D Systems is used in ShapeGrabber 3D scanning solutions to create accurate models from scanner data, or for quality control and measurement applications.

Geomagic software is used in quality inspection, analysis, reverse engineering, custom manufacturing, industrial design, visualization and digital archiving projects around the world.

Geomagic is a ShapeGrabber partner and we are proud to offer Geomagic software as part of our 3D laser scanning offerings.
