Introduction
iQube is a simple but powerful 3D scanner specifically created for use in
designing custom orthotic insoles.
iQube provides you with a versatile tool to produce high quality orthotics
and insoles and improve the quality of service you are able to provide to
your clients.
It allows you to scan what you want, when you want and how you want.
Whether you need to scan a foot, a cast or a foam box impression, iQube
can produce a high quality 3D image in approximately 3 seconds, saving
you time and improving the quality of the output.
Using technology developed for the Aerospace industry, the iQube
obtains a high level of detail using laser and multi camera configuration
to produce a full colour 3D image that is accurate to within a hair’s
breadth. This high level of accuracy means that you get the custom
orthotic right first time and minimise the inconvenience to your client.
iQube allows the foot to be scanned in non, partial and full weight
bearing positions, allowing flexibility dependant upon the patient’s needs.
The scanner is lightweight and compact, making it fully portable and
comes with an optional carry case, allowing you to use it at different
locations and transport it with ease. Once you have scanned the item you
want, you can design and manufacture the custom orthotic insole using
Delcam’s OrthoModel software or your existing orthotic CADCAM
software.

electronic equipment, including all components, sub-assemblies and
consumables, which are part of the products at the time of discarding.
2 • Compliance
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (the WEEE Directive) stipulates that WEEE is now subject
to regulations designed to prevent the disposal of such waste and to
encourage design and treatment measures to minimize the amount of
waste that is placed into the waste system.
The purpose of this legislation is to preserve, protect and improve the
quality of the environment, protect human health, and stimulate the
practical use of natural resources. Specifically, the WEEE Directive
requires that producers of electrical and electronic equipment be
responsible for the collection, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE
which the Producer places on the EU market after August 13, 2005.
As an importer of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), we have
endeavoured to meet these environmental responsibilities for managing
WEEE. The following information is to educate our customers about the
WEEE collection process.
In order to avoid any potential dissemination of hazardous substances into
the environment, the product has been labelled with the WEEE symbol
(see below) in order to alert the end-user that it should be disposed of
within the proper waste management system. That system will recycle,
reuse, and dispose of materials from this product in an environmentally
sound way.
The symbol found on the Delcam product label, indicates that the product
meets the European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste and Electronic
Equipment. This symbol, only applicable in European Union countries,
indicates that when this product reaches the end of its life it should not be
disposed of with normal household or municipal waste, but in an
established waste stream for WEEE.
Each EU Member State country has established a system for the
collection, disposal, and recycling of WEEE. End-users in the EU should
contact their local waste administration system for collection instructions
concerning this product.

Changing the Sensitivity & Resolution
OrthoMAN has been setup with the optimum settings for scanning feet,
foam boxes and casts. However the scan results are dependent upon the
following factors and the default settings may need to be adjusted
accordingly.
Lighting conditions (artificial lighting)
Colour of item being scanned
Level of detail required.
Sensitivity
If the material is darker then you may need to increase the
sensitivity.
If the results are being affected by artificial lighting then you
should either move the scanner to another location, turn off the
artificial lighting or reduce the sensitivity settings.
More data will be captured if the sensitivity is increased (the
internal cameras are ‘open’ for longer)
There is a greater risk of capturing ‘noisy’ data if the sensitivity is
increased. This will in turn slow the time taken to process the
mesh.
With an allowed range of very_low to very_high the default sensitivity
values are:
Foot: High
Foam: Low
Cast: Very_Low
36 • Scan Page
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
These settings can be adjusted to either:
Very_Low
Low
Normal
High
Very_High
6. Edit the required sensitivity settings:
Resolution
If you increase the ‘Detail’ (by entering a smaller filter value) you
are filtering out less points and more detail will be maintained.
If you increase the ‘Detail’ you may actually introduce model mesh
features that do not lend themselves to the creation of a smooth
orthotic
If you increase the detail the time taken to process the mesh will
increase
With an allowed range of 0.5 to 1.5 the default sensitivity values are:
Foot: 1.2
Foam: 1.5
Cast: 1.5
These settings can adjusted to any value between 0.5 and 1.5mm
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
Scan Page • 37
If you decrease the value ie. 0.5 – you are actually increasing
the detail because less points are being filtered out.
7. Edit the required resolution values:
8. Save the text file and re-start OrthoMAN.
For tip s on when to modify these setting s please see the Scanning section (see page 44).
Scan Mode
There are three Scan Mode buttons.
Mode 1 - Take scan immediately
Use this button to start an immediate scan.
38 • Scan Page
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
Mode 2: Retrieve scan stored on the scanner
This mode is useful in two events:
When you need to action a scan without the use of a connected PC.
For instance within a large laboratory there may be many PC’s
networked to one iQube scanner. Any individual can use the scan
activation switch then go back to their PC (or any other running
OrthoMAN) and retrieve the data back into OrthoMAN.
When a practioner may need to manipulate a patients foot and
cannot get access to the connected PC to start the scan. In
combination with a timer delay (see below) the practioner can
activate the iQube scan activation switch and still have time to
orientate the foot prior to a scan commencing.
Before using the iQube scan activation switch a timer delay may be
required.
1. Select the mode with the right mouse button
2. Enter a value into text box
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
Scan Page • 39
3. Hold your hand over the switch to activate the scan.
Once the switch has been triggered it should glow red and the delay will
commence.
4. Once the scan is complete return to the PC running OrthoMAN
5. Click on either the either of the below buttons to retrieve the scan.

Orientation & Location (Foot)
1. Ensure that the foot is orientated with the heel at the iQube logo
end of the scanner with its axis parallel to the scanner body side.
2. Locate the foot centrally over the glass aperture.
3. If required manipulate the foot into position prior to the scan. Any
unwanted data can be discarded at a later point but ensure that you
do not to cover any part of the plantar surface during the scan.
In the case of a weight off scan the plantar surface of the foot must
be within 50mm of the scanner surface.
4. Depending upon the data quality it may be necessary to move the
foot laterally across the glass so the medial edge is closer to the
edge of the glass aperture.
Scan Settings (Foot)
Depending upon the colour of the patient’s foot and the amount of detail
required it may be necessary to adjust the Colour and Detail.
Default settings are:
Colour – 2nd Darkest
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
Scanning Procedures • 47
Detail - Medium-High
The above settings are ideal for a typical Caucasian foot.
If you are experiencing missing/sparse data try a darker colour
setting.
If you experiencing large amounts of noise try a lighter colour
setting
If you need more detail in the data then try a higher detail
setting (this will increase the data processing time)

Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Help
Initially always use two 45mm lifters (21) to lift the heel end of the
foam box. The lifters enable the angled lasers and cameras to see
more of the negative impression.
For deeper foam boxes increase their height by adding the
extensions (22) to the current lifters at the heel end. At the toe end
of the impression add two 45mm lifters (21).
Scanner Setup (Foam Box Impression)
Place scanner body on a flat surface (lid is not required)
It is suggested that for all foam boxes (40 or 55mm depth) initially use
two 45mm lifters (21) at the heel end to raise the heel end of the foam
box.
