Z+F and ClearEdge3D announce partnership

Zoller + Fröhlich and ClearEdge3D Announce Major Distribution Partnership

Agreement combines the modeling speed of EdgeWiseTM with the data quality and automated registration of Z+F’s 5010X for a faster scan-to-model workflow

Hamburg, Germany — October 11, 2016 — Zoller + Fröhlich (Z+F) and ClearEdge3D today jointly announced a software marketing and distribution partnership that will offer a faster, fully integrated scanning and modeling workflow for the industrial plant and BIM markets. The agreement combines Z+F’s innovative portfolio of high-quality laser scanners and their new “Blue Workflow” automated registration technology with ClearEdge’s EdgeWise automated modeling software. The combination offers unparalleled field-to-finish speed and data accuracy.


The fulcrum of this new, faster workflow is the automated registration capabilities enabled by the 5010X’s position sensors, which allow users to register their scans “on the fly”, identify any gaps in the scan data and supplement the dataset with more scans while still on-site.  When combined with the automated feature extraction algorithms and automated modeling technologies in EdgeWise, this new “Blue Workflow” promises to substantially reduce collection, registration and modeling time.


Under the agreement, Z+F will market and sell the EdgeWise software as a bundle with the 5010X and as a separate, stand-alone software package. According to Kevin Williams, Chief Scientist at ClearEdge3D, “Z+F’s reputation for highly accurate, truly robust scanning hardware is well-deserved. The potential scan-to-model time savings EdgeWise and the Blue Workflow together can deliver we think will be tremendous.” Added Christoph Fröhlich, CEO of Z+F, “EdgeWise is the fastest modeling solution on the market and when added to our Blue Workflow, users will experience unprecedented time savings and data accuracy.”
