HP has pushed out the 3D camera from its Sprout computers as a product in its own right, as it looks to take advantage of the increased demand for 3D content.

The HP Z 3D Camera’s design minimises desktop space, clipping to monitors like a webcam, for real-time capture and visualisation - its scanning technology constructing the 3D model in real time.

Workflows are enhanced by scanning objects with computer-graphics-friendly resolutions that maintain separate texture maps for physical-based rendering (PBR) and AR, VR and mixed reality content creation.

Models can be exported to a wide range of software - from office staple PowerPoint to Sub-D modelling ZBrush, along with some Autodesk applications - blending the 2D and 3D workflows, making 3D capture available to anybody that is using Windows 10.

Scheduled for US-only availability in March, the HP Z 3D camera will cost $599.
