The scanner extends the lighting and Superscan capabilities of the Metis DRS DCS series providing the ability to enlighten the original with 8 different and independent light sources, each aimed to a specific result. In particular the Superscan PM3D® can enlighten the original with sharp or soft light sources from virtually any direction including also the possibility to control specular reflections (i.e. for gold/glossy materials). Thousands of different light schematics are possible and achieved automatically through sophisticated software and hardware controls.
Furthermore the new Superscan PM3D® now allows to scan a wood plate orientated in any direction on the scanning table thanks to the new lighting system. 3D emboss scanning (depth MAP generation) is calculated based on the information provided by the different lightings and using unique algorithms developed by METIS that allows a dense and detailed 3D reconstruction of the original surface. Different kinds of embossed surfaces can be scanned with optimal results (wood, wallpapers, tiles, stones, etc.) and even glossy materials.
