Thank you for using Mech-Eye Industrial 3D Camera!

Introduction of Product and Documentation

Mech-Eye Industrial 3D Camera (“camera”) is the structured-light 3D camera developed by Mech-Mind. Through Mech-Eye SDK or third-party machine vision software, you can obtain 2D images, depth maps, and point clouds from the camera.

This documentation provides contents including the software user manual of Mech-Eye SDK, hardware user manual of the camera, technical specifications of the camera, and troubleshooting guidance.

If you use the full Mech-Mind solution (including the camera hardware, Mech-Eye SDK, Mech-Vision, etc) to guide the robot, please check out Learning Guidance for 3D Robot Guidance instead.
