HP sure knows what good technology is. Growshapes has been at the forefront of distributing this amazing 3D scanning technology in the US.
When 3Dprint.com reviewed the DAVID SLS-2 3D scanner last summer, they wrote: "The quality of each scan (0.1% of object size — up to 0.05 mm) will simply blow you away, while accuracy is second to none at this price point."
HP is investing heavily into the whole 3D printing ecosystem from creation to production with its Sprout 3D, an immersive computer integrated with a 3D scanner. HP views 3D scanning as one key piece of the whole end to end digital manufacturing process.
"David is an outstanding technology leader in 3D scanning and an essential enabler for Sprout. The acquisition provides HP with exciting technology to continue to evolve Sprout 3D and advance its market opportunities in both Immersive Computing and the $7 billion 3D scanning market. " - HP
