SuperScan PM3D
SuperScan PM3D

The SUPERSCAN PM3D is based on innovative scanning concepts invented by METIS and aimed to respond to the special needs of the Fine-Art, industrial, and décor markets.  The SUPERSCAN PM3D has integrated new patented technologies that allow the user to scan color and 3D surfaces at a very high resolution even on large originals.

The scanner extends the lighting and Superscan capabilities of the METIS DRS 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 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.

The new SUPERSCAN PM3D now allows scanning 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 uses 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.

The SUPERSCAN PM3D is the first scanner to breach the resolution limits caused by the number of pixels in the imaging sensors thanks to an innovative opto-mechanical design that allows a native optical resolution of 1200PPI on the full scanning area (200x130cm).

The SUPERSCAN PM3D is also the first scanner to adopt the new METIS Scan Director software that has been designed specifically to fulfill the requirements of the industrial, fine-arts and décor markets and for handling 3D data.
