    Introduction to SBSDK



    Polyga’s SBSDK allows users to build their own custom scanning applications or scan processing workflow. The SDK is available and a easy to use Windows DLL library with bindings and examples in the C++ and C# programming languages. You can easily integrate Polyga scanners (S, L, H, and C series) into your own workflow or system. This includes the TriggerBox adapter for the Carbon series of scanners. All scanners are connected to the PC via Gigabit Ethernet over TCP/IP.

    Device Control

    With the SBSDK, you have full control of the 3D device including the following. 

    • All camera settings including exposure and brightness
    • Live video feed of monochrome or color cameras
    • Retrieve the resulting point cloud or meshes in real-time (milliseconds)
    • Capture regular scans or HDR scans automatically to complete your 3D scan model
    • Direct the data stream to your own application’s processing pipeline
    • Talk to multiple and different devices

    With direct image and point cloud access, available in real-time, you can easily implemented machine vision, AI, bin-picking and other real-time 3D vision applications. 

    You can even mount the scanner on a motion control device like a robot arm to control when and where it will scan. The SDK is designed to work with all Polyga scanners individually, or in parallel.

    Export Data

    Automatically export your scan data to the following file types:

    • Raw Points and Faces
    • PLY, OBJ, STL, 3D3
    • PTS, ASC, TXT
    • Direct memory transfer
