Ride Designs is excited to announce effective May 1, 2022 we are no longer providing scanners with our shape capture tool kits.
Since the inception of the RideWorks app in 2017, our Ride Certified Practitioners have utilized the Structure Sensor 3D scanner attached to an iPad to create a 3D scan of captured shapes – shapes which are then submitted via RideWorks for the making of Ride custom seating systems. All tool kits supplied to Ride Certified Practitioners between March of 2017 and May 1, 2022 utilize this method.
We are pleased to introduce a new scanning method, utilizing LiDAR technology via an app called ‘Scaniverse’ installed on an iPad equipped with a LiDAR scanner (iPad Pro 2020 or later*). This method does not require the attachment of a separate scanning device to the iPad.
If you order Ride shape capture tools after May 1, 2022 you will not receive a scanner and scanner bracket. You will receive an iPad Pro with no scanner. You are seriously going to love this new method! It’s simpler, requires no extra attachments or chargers, and it’s even more accurate.
Each tool kit containing an iPad Pro will also include these instructions for using the Scaniverse app to scan your captured shape and submit it to Ride.
If you have a Structure Sensor scanner from us, but also have an iPad Pro that was made in 2020 or later, you are welcome to install the Scaniverse app and use it instead of the Structure Sensor scanner. We are happy to accept either method of scanning.
Onward and upward!
