To further process the recorded profile information from the laser scanner, the scanner can be integrated into a software application such as LabVIEW® or Geomagic Qualify®. Conventional laser scanners very often leave this task to the user, who must perform labour-intensive programming work to ensure that the data is correctly integrated and processed.
When working with the scanCONTROL laser scanner, the user is aided by freely available, ready-to-use software packages.
A software development kit is also available for C/C++. It uses simple examples to demonstrate how scanCONTROL is integrated into your own application. If the user works with LabVIEW, help is provided by a ready-to-use device driver, which can then be directly integrated with the user's own virtual instruments (VIs) via modules. The LabVIEW device driver and the scanCONTROL SDK are now also available in 64 bit.
The Geomagic Qualify inspection software that is used to directly compare measured profiles with the target model works via a plug-in. This plug-in is included in the software to directly provide all the functions of the scanCONTROL laser scanner.
This all makes integrating the scanCONTROL into application software easier than ever.
