Kaarta, innovator of the next big leap in 3D modeling, brings an unprecedented combination of ease, usability, speed, and accuracy to the market with the launch of Contour – an integrated, handheld device that enables 3D modeling from input to output in real time. Contour condenses the workflow process by eliminating time and cost and allows decision-making at the point of work. First units will ship to select customers in April, with general availability slated for the second half of the year.
Contour directly answers unmet challenges in today’s marketplace. Current practices are burdened by multiple products and steps required to collect, process, and finally convert spatial data into an actionable 3D model. Contour merges these discrete tasks into one step, amounting to a simple walk on site with the device in hand. This is made possible by Kaarta Engine, the underlying software which lets the device sense, scan, process, and digitally reproduce its surroundings on the go – an industry first. Contour’s onboard touchscreen is a major advancement in ease and usability. The screen displays the model as it’s being built in real time, allowing the user to improve results during mapping and even control the display to provide immediate knowledge of the environment. Users are able to pause, rewind, and resume Contour during scanning – a capability only possible due to the ability to view the real-time map. Read More
