Capable of scanning and milling, MDX-20 Scanning and Milling Machine is ideal for a variety of product design tasks, including reverse modeling, rapid prototyping, jewelry and model making, and small lot production. Select the spindle tip for state-of-the-art CNC milling, or select the Roland Active Piezo Sensor for precise 3D scanning. By testing and modifying your virtual 3D designs, the MDX-20 Scanning and Milling Machine will save you time and money.
The Roland Active Piezo Sensor (RAPS) transforms the machine into a 3D scanner for scanning 3D objects and creating 3D data. The milling spindle unit turns the machine into a full-featured CNC (computer numerical control) mill capable of cutting jeweler's wax, resins, chemical wood, acrylic, and even light metals such as brass and aluminum.

Virtual Modela enables simulation of finished 3D models and accurately estimates machining production time. Lighting effects, material color or bitmap overlays can be added for accurate finished product representation. Access can be directly achieved from 3D Engrave, Modela Player or from import of a PRN file.
Modela Player is a CAM software application that accepts DXF and STL files exported from commercially available CAD/CAM software. It also allows for uniform 3D scaling, selection of milling direction and automatic generation and display of the tool path. Cutting depths and speeds are controlled from a predefined material library or can be set to user-defined specifications.
Modela 3D DESIGN
Modela 3D DESIGN makes it possible to intuitively create 3D shapes called "objects." An object is created by taking a predefined shape such as a cylinder or sphere and using control rods called "reference lines" to modify the basic shape into the final design. The software also allows adding color for rendering the created shape. Similar to 3D TEXT, files are imported directly to Modela Player or exported as 3D DXF files.
Modela 3D TEXT
Modela 3D TEXT will turn any Windows True Type font into a 3D relief for automatic import to Modela Player or a 3D DXF file format.
Dr. PICZA is a comprehensive, dedicated scanning software. Packed with easy-to-use functions, it can reduce data volume by reducing the Resolution of all or part of the captured data, or it can rescan part of the object at a finer scanning pitch and automatically combine it with the original data. Dr. PICZA is designed as an input GUI software controller for any of the PIX series scanners. It supports an array of data output formats including DXF (CAD data), STL, 3DMF (3D format standard), gray scale BMP and coming soon, IGES export ability.
Interface - Serial (RS-232C). If your computer doesn't have a RS232 port you can buy an inexpensive USB-to-RS232 cable.
