Innovative functionality

The ZEISS colin3D software platform is designed to ideally complement the COMET, COMET Photogrammetry and T-SCAN sensor systems. The program independently identifies the ideal strategies for merging individual images (matching) and guides you to the ideal result using a completely redesigned, project-oriented user interface. Thanks to the CAD integration, you receive continual feedback about the component surface areas that still need to be captured.

Maximum performance

Based on years of programming experience with 64-bit operating systems and the corresponding hardware such as graphics cards and multi-processor systems, the new algorithms of ZEISS colin3D achieve maximum performance and data quality.

Optimal user support

To quickly and efficiently position the T-SCAN system from ZEISS, the measurement field and scanner can be optionally displayed in ZEISS colin3D, making it easier to determine the ideal tracker position. Measuring programs for applications using the rotary tables COMETrotary and COMETdual rotary can be easily generated and executed. All individual measurements in a measurement sequence are subjected to quality checks and automatically repeated if necessary.

Data analysis functions

For quality assurance applications, the scan data can be compared on the surface of a CAD model using a simple best fit alignment. ZEISS colin3D contains a simple false color display with a color gradient and fixed values. To more precisely analyze deviations, users can place the flyers on the surface individually as required. Reports for documenting the measurement results can be easily and quickly generated and managed.
