Dot3D Pro replaces Phi.3D on all DPI handheld 3D scanners

The handheld scanners DPI-8S and DPI-8S SR are powered by Dot3D Pro. Phi.3D is still supported, but no new features will be developed. All DPI-8X/SR and DPI-8/SR customers with active Phi.3D support and maintenance contracts will be transferred to a Dot3D Pro maintenance plan and can upgrade their DPI tablet to Dot3D Pro immediately. DPI customers interested in upgrading should complete the upgrade form as soon as possible to promptly receive the new license key and installation instructions if the maintenance and support contract is current.

Hardware upgrades to the DPI-8S/SR are also available for all DPI customers with active maintenance contracts. The DPI-8S/SR comes with a 32GB Samsung Tab S2 tablet, a sleek 8.0" QXGA touchscreen display and 3GB RAM for larger scene capture. The new, lighter design also provides direct access to the tablet's 8-megapixel camera for taking HD photos while scanning (enabled in the new Dot3D Pro).
