Calibry Nest is a combination of two software programs: one that is “embedded” (preinstalled on your 3D scanner) and one that is meant for your desktop or laptop computer.
In Drake and Calibry 3D scanner an embedded software program is pre-installed on the internal computer of the scanners. This software launches when you start your scanner and facilitates the acquisition of 3D data. Using the build-in touch screen, control the scanner with the help of this straightforward program. The interface is simple to use and understand. It has several buttons (such as “Start”, “Stop”, “Power Off”) and a few settings for the adventurous users (such as “Sensitivity” parameters to help when scanning in bright lighting conditions).
Once scanning is done, transfer the data via USB flash drive to your computer to finalize the model and export it. At Thor3D, we developed this software keeping in mind both experienced and novice users and that is why there are two modes in the program: Simple and Advanced.
The Simple mode has exactly four buttons (Open, Start, Save, and Settings). Use this mode if you plan to scan the same type of objects all the time (let’s say you only scan humans on a turntable for 3D printing). Configure the settings once and press “Start” each time you import a model from Calibry 3D scanner or Drake. All post-processing is done automatically and you will see the data on the screen turn from raw data to a finalized, simplified, water-tight, colored 3D model ready for printing (no noise, no floor, no holes, with a base under the feet)!
The desktop software is an all-in-one solution that is perpetually updated by our team of software developers. It has been translated into six languages (English, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, and Korean) and we are constantly adding more translations. The program can be used as a viewer to open and edit models that were made using other 3D scanners or CAD software and the simple user interface should make it easy not only for an expert but a beginner as well.
