Introduced by ScienceGL Inc., 3D Laser Beam View combines power of 2D and OpenGL based 3D visualization.
With newly introduced support of USB 2.0 and FireWire interface our software became the most flexible laser beam analyzing solution. You can get any CCD / CMOS camera of your choose and easily combine it with our software.

Advanced visualization
3D Surface View has inherited advanced visualization capabilities of OpenGL, i.e. the most realistic interpretation of light, material, color, reflection, etc., which gives the surface a real look. Among the other advantages of the 3D visualization important is the possibility to analyze fine structure details of the surface. On image left one can easy notice a line the lower sensitivity line, resulted from incorrect calibration of the imager.

 3D beam visualization examples
Beam topography with colors, shadows and reflections
Topographic coloring of the surface using Look Up Table (LUT) is a common way of beam topography visualization in 2D domain. 3D Beam View gives you additional shadow and reflection facilities. Surface color map as well as background color are selectable from default or user defined gallery.




Fast rendering preserves main surface features.
Real-time rendering 
2 levels of acceleration:
  • pre-compiling and buffering for best performance
  • user selectable detail compression level of detail (LOD) for faster viewing high-resolution images



    Optimized algorithm provides real-time zooming, scaling, rotation, animation without loosing much quality of the 3D surface. The effect of compression can be also considered as low-pass filter.

    Stile Modes: Polygon (a), Wire (b) and Dot (c) 
    Rrendering modes: polygons, lines (wires),  dots

    Wire and dot surfaces preserve all the light shadowing and reflection features that give the surface more realistic look

    Lighting with different incident angles
    Light direction adjustment in 3D space.
    Beam fine structure is better visualized at certain angle of incidence (see example left).
