3D Systems 3D Systems Touch Haptic Device

The Touch Haptic Device from 3D Systems is a mid-range professional haptic device that enables users to seamlessly interface with 3D modeling software, and to freely sculpt “3D Clay.” It also enhances scientific or medical simulations, interacts directly with 3D modeled objects on screen, and is perfect for easily maneuvering mechanical components to produce higher quality designs. The built-in motor applies force feedback on the user’s hand, allowing them to actually feel virtual objects and produces true-to-life touch sensations as the user manipulates on-screen 3D objects.

When used with the Geomagic software suite, the Touch enables users to solve complex design and manufacturing challenges, 3D model highly detailed organic shapes, and mashup into existing applications. Its perfect for prototyping new ideas, and creating haptically-enabled products. Touch is also sold as a component of Geomagic Freeform and Geomagic Sculpt, making the entire interface setup just a click away.

List Price: $2,800.00

The Touch Haptic device from 3D Systems provides users with true three-dimensional navigation and force feedback experience, pushing past our sense of sight and integrating the sense of touch into the Geomagic Freeform and Geomagic Sculpt 3D modeling software solutions. Touch Haptic device can accurately measure the 3D Spatial position (along x-, y- And z-axis) and the orientation (roll, pitch, and yaw) of its handheld stylus.


Touch Haptic Devices are used in every industry that requires accurate organic designs. Using the sense of touch, users are able to build 3D models faster and with more precision than ever before.
