  • Dimensional Photonics is back (new incarnation?). The have a nicely packaged accordian fringe system. Minolta now sells their system for high-end applications. The technology promises to be more tolerant of lighting and shinely parts.
  • EOIS makes the mini-moire non-contact probe for portable measurement arms. They also have 'The Handy' handheld digitizer that uses a digital camera for data capture and storage. EOIS technology sold to Opton Co Ltd of Japan in 2001.
  • Eyetronics sells the ShapeCam and the SnapeSnatcher Suite Software. ShapeCam consists of a digital camera and a specially designed flash device mounted on a lightweight frame. Photos captured with the portable ShapeCam are processed and assembled in 3D with the SnapeSnatcher Suite. The suite handles alignment and stitching of scans, polygon reduction, texturemapping, and surface extrusion.
