3D Systems' New Scanning Solution

3D Systems announced an inexpensive personal 3D scanner last week, but they also announced a professional 3D scanning solution, too. 
 
The new GeoMagic Capture bundle is a combination of a blue-LED 3D scanner and application-specific software to integrate the scan directly into several high-end 3D modeling solutions, including: SolidWorks, SpaceClaim, Design X, Design Direct, Control and Verify. 
 
The product is definitely not for home users, as it's priced from USD$15,000 and up. However, we expect that 3D Systems' increasing interest in professional scanning recently will have a trickle-down effect, where learnings and technologies will bolster their consumer offerings in the near future.
