New DAVID Version 2.2

DAVID Version 2.2 is available for download now! Here is a list of the main new features and improvements:

Easier Use, Especially for Beginners

The scanned data are now filtered automatically. When you change the filter settings, you will see their effect directly in 3D.
A magnifying glass in the live camera image helps you to adjust camera and laser focus (toggle with left mouse button).
DAVID now comes in a convenient Windows installer.

Multi-Language Interface
DAVID's user interface and user manual are available in Engish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and new: Polish!
Scan Without Background
Under certain conditions, DAVID can now scan without background planes! However, you will need a precisely repeatable laser motion, e.g. by using a motor-driven laser or by projecting a moving line with a video projector.
The basic procedure, pros and cons, and some important remarks about using this feature can be found in this user manual page (
There are some more improvements and bugfixes included in the new version, so an update (both Free and Professional Edition) is definitely recommended! See the complete list of changes here (
