  • Patent number: 10237421
    Abstract: A printer is provided. The printer has a printer body enclosing an interior, a screen, a camera, and a processor communicatively coupled to the camera. The screen overlies an exterior of at least a portion of the printer body. The camera is disposed within the interior and is configured to capture an image hereof. The processor is configured, by an analytical diagnostic software program, to display the captured image on the screen, thereby simulating a see-through view into the interior.

  • Patent number: 10060729
    Abstract: A handheld dimensioner with a user interface configured to present a quality indicator is disclosed. The handheld dimensioner is configured to capture three-dimensional (3D) data and assess the three-dimensional-data's quality. Based on this quality, a quality indicator may be generated and presented to a user via the user interface. This process may be repeated while the user repositions the handheld dimensioner. In this way, the user may use the quality indicators generated at different positions to find an optimal position for a particular dimension measurement.
