TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (President: Makoto Kimura) is pleased to announce the release of its easy-to-use intelligent Portable 3D Measuring System.

Product information

Product Name Portable 3D Measuring System - P3D NC-2323S
Available from Available from: July 1, 2014

Product Concept

Measuring a product’s performance and design has become increasingly important, not only for research & development, but for production and quality control.
The compact P3D NC-2323S is easy to carry and can be operated with a push of a button and without a computer. Unlike 3D measuring systems currently in use, it does not require professional expertise or technical knowledge to operate.
With its intelligent functions, portability, and immediacy, it is ideally suited for quick, on-site measurements, such as those required on the automotive production floor.

  • *P3D: Portable 3D

Key Features

1. Easy operation

The simple GUI* allows first-time users immediate and intuitive operation. 3D measuring data are captured by moving the lens over an object and pressing the shutter button.

  • *Graphical User Interface

2. Small, lightweight and intelligent

The compact body includes a sensor, operator and controller; enabling users to check the data immediately and also conduct simple measurements. The P3D has been made small, light and energy efficient through the use of the newly developed MEMS* projector and laser source.
Moreover, it works with both an AC adaptor and a battery, allowing it to be used on production floors where available power sources are limited.

  • *MEMS: Micro Electro Mechanical System
    Projection system that projects a laser beam onto a micromirror made using a semiconductor micromachining technique in order to project an optical pattern onto the object being measured.

3. PC coordination

The newly developed P3D Viewer software meets a number of requirements, including data backup, 3D data reconstruction under different conditions, checking and editing, 3D data stitching and 3D printer coordination.
