Calvin Hur, VP & General Manager, Computer Aided Tools, is enthusiastic about how being part of 3D Systems accelerates the pace of innovation in software. “We’re going to be able to provide even better software for 3D scanning, 3D printing, design and quality control with our expanded resources.” Dr. Hur welcomes everyone to “stay tuned, because we have a lot of exciting things in the pipeline.”
3D Scanning in Life of Pi

"Rapidform XOR is the best 3D scanning software to handle huge amounts of raw data from the FARO Focus 3D scanner that we used to scan the boat for Life of Pi,” said Edward Yao, LeaderTek Sales Engineer.”We were very happy with the results of the scan data processing from the merged STL file that we delivered to Rhythm & Hues, the company in charge of CG for the film.”

Creating Smart Models From Scan Data A "smart" model is a parametric model that uses parameters intelligently to control the design of the model. This concept is used when designing a part that needs to change to fit a number of similar parts in a family.
