What is a 3D foot scanner?
3D foot scanner is a necessary tool for capturing the shape and external appearance of foot in 3D space. PT-3D Scan quickly and easily collects point-by-point information from an object in three-dimensional space and generates a network of related data as dimensions.
We need to have information about the dimensions and angles of an object in three-dimensional space to properly visualize and understand the dimensions of an object. In 3D foot scan, a 3D image is produced like a cast with all the details of the foot. This three-dimensional cast helps specialists in designing shoes, medical insoles and foot rehabilitation equipment with great precision and elegance.
PayaTek 3D Foot Scanner | PT-3D Scan
PyaTek 3D foot scanner is produce a very accurate 3D image from the sole of the foot to the ankle without emitting harmful rays (using low power laser). The technology used in this device is LASER triangulation. Using this device, the characteristics of the physical structure of the foot, including arch rate, the location of the arches, the position of the toes and the spatial dimensions of the foot are measured. The characteristics of the physical structure of the foot should be examined in three modes: no weight application, single foot full weight application and sitting position. From these three positions, we can clearly see how the physical structure of the foot changes in the position of applying weight and walking. Many foot deformities are extracted from examining this information.
3D Foot Scanner output format
PT-3D scan output format is STL and PLY standard digital data. The PLY standard is offered in this device with two versions of high quality and low quality. Providing standard output models is particularly important for compatibility with a variety of 3D design software. This data can be used in all CAD / CAM software and processes and is also compatible with a variety of CNC machines.
3D Foot Scanner output information
PayaTek 3D foot scanner is capable of accurately studying the anthropometry of the human foot. This information is very useful in the precise design of shoes with general or specific applications. In general, any data related to the dimensions of the human foot can be measured and reported in the output of this device. For example, the following can be mentioned, but any type of measurement is supported:
First Toe Length – Second Toe Length – Third Toe Length – Fourth Toe Length – Fifth Toe Length – Arch Length – Heel to medial malleolus – Heel to lateral malleolus – Heel Width – Foot Width – Bimalleolar Width – Mid-foot Width – Medial Malleolus Height – Lateral Malleolus Height – Height at 50% foot length – Ball Girth – Instep Girth – Long Heel Girth – Short Heel Girth – Ankle Girth – Waist Girth – Optional linear sizes include length and width in different areas – Foot environment in desired parts – Diagnosis of arch type of foot.
Advantages of PT-3D SCAN
PayaTek 3D foot scanner captures high-resolution, high-speed 3D foot scans using four laser beams and six powerful cameras. 3ِD foot data is generated in less than 10 seconds and in various directions. In this method, the scanning process is done in the shortest time and with the highest accuracy up to a height of 14 cm.
3D foot scanner enables you to capture data directly from the patient’s foot in a weight-bearing, semi-weight-bearing, or non-weight-bearing position. This allows you to check the changes in the size of the foot and the height of the arch of the foot due to the application of weight in the most accurate way.
The 3D foot scanner is compatible with all CAD/CAM solutions and is suitable for scanning lasts, foot, hand foam boxes, insoles. It is possible to directly transfer the 3D model to any CAD software.
The accuracy of PT-3D SCAN for scanning solid objects is 0.1 mm. But you should always be careful that the foot has a blood pulse. This pulse can cause an error of up to 0.4 mm in the worst case.
