Pergatech3D

Overview

Pergatech3D is a structured light 3D Scanning system that can quickly turn objects into 3D models through Pergatech‘s scanning software Apollonius3D. Unlike most 3D scanning devices, which must sacrifice image quality for affordability, Pergatech3D maintains high-speed, high-quality image capture at a reasonable price.

FAQ

FAQ

What is the Pergatech3D Scanner ?

Pergatech3D is a structured light 3D Scanning system that can quickly turn objects into 3D models through a software called Apollonius3D.

With Apollonius3D, users can modify, improve, and share 3D models for various purposes including digital design and 3D printing.

What is special about the Pergatech3D Scanner ?

Unlike most 3D scanning devices, which must sacrifice image quality for affordability, Pergatech3D maintains high-speed, high-quality image capture at a reasonable price.

The Pergatech3D software, Apollonius3D, gives users the flexibility to change the hardware components at any time and still remain compatible with each other.

What can the Pergatech3D scanner be used for ?
  • Quality control / assessment
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Product customization
  • Reverse engineering
  • Medicine (especially orthopedics)
  • Digital arts (animation)
  • Hobby
Who is the Pergatech3D Scanner for ?

Anyone who wants to create 3D data for objects of up to 60 inches. Users may include people in the fields of reverse engineering, quality inspection, arts, science, and medicine.

What kind of scan quality I can expect from the Pergatech3D Scanner ?

1.3 million vertices (400 dots per inch)

Is the Pergatech3D Scanner compatible with 3D printers ?

Yes! The Apollonius3D outputs STL, OBJ, ASC, PCL and PLY files that allow Pergatech3D users to print models on all types of 3D printers.

What are the keys to good 3D scanning results ?

Calibration:

Be sure to follow instructions during the calibration phase for best results.

Lighting and scanning environment:

In order to improve the image quality, reduce the lighting in the room and cover the surface on which your scanned object is resting with a dark cover or cloth.

Special coating spray for dark and transparent objects:

Use of special coating spray for dark and transparent objects will ultimately increase the scanning quality, but it is not necessary to achieve good results.

What lighting environment should I have for best results ?

Pergatech3D comes with a video projector and hence has its own lighting source. Therefore, it is only slightly affected by the lighting environment. However, it is recommended that you keep scanned objects away from bright, powerful light sources and direct sun light.

Does the Pergatech3D scanner capture the color of the surface of my object as it scans ?

Yes!

Can I scan living things, such as my child or pet, or a body part such as my hand ?

Pergatech3D can scan living objects. It is important to note that the movements/motions of the scanned object during the scanning process will affect the scan quality. It is preferred if the scanned object stays still during scanning, which takes only a few seconds.

Can the Pergatech3D Scanner scan machines or items with moving parts ?

Pergatech3D can scan machines and items with moving parts. It is important to note that the movements/motions of the scanned object during the scanning process affect the scan quality. It is preferred if the scanned object stays still during scanning, which takes only a few seconds.

After I scan something with the Pergatech3D Scanner, can I modify the 3D model ?

The 3D models created by Pergatech3D are composed of tens of thousands of points and facets. Pergatech3D lets its users move these points and facets to transform the scanned object into something new. Users can also combine separate models, cut them into pieces, or subtract material from their models.

Is Apollonius3D compatible with OS and OSX systems ?

No! Apollinius3D is not compatible with OS and OSX operating systems.

How does Pergatech protect Pergatech3D’s property rights ?

We are now in the progress of obtaining legal intellectual property protections for all Pergatech products.

Pergatech has filed patent and copyright applications for current and planned Pergatech products. We have ongoing trademark applications for our company name, logo, and products.

Where is the Pergatech3D Scanner manufactured ?

Berlin, Germany

What is the story behind your company and product names ?

Pergatech is inspired by an ancient Greek city called Perga, founded in 1000 BC in what is now the southwestern Mediterranean coast of present-day Turkey.

Apollonius3D comes from Apollonius of Perga, one of the founding fathers of modern geometry. Apollonius of Perga gave the ellipse, the parabola, and the hyperbola their modern names. Apollonius was also an important founder of Greek mathematical astronomy, which used geometrical models to explain planetary theory.
