LAS VEGAS -- ETemplate Systems, providers of 3D measuring software, won the 2015 StonExpo Technology Award for its ELaser CT program. Awards were handed out at the 2015 TISE expo (SURFACES|StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas|TileExpo), held Jan. 20-22 during the second annual Design & Contruction Week, which also featured the co-located 2015 International Builders Show (IBS) and 2015 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).

The ELaser CT system is used for countertop templating. According to the company, 3D data is collected and automatically projected onto a desired 2D plane. The user can define any plane in space as the XY plane (horizontal/vertical/other) for 2D layout and design.

"ETemplate is certainly honored to win this prestigious award," said Paul Hansen, president, ETemplate Systems. "The industry has been asking for an easy-to-use, forward thinking system that has the tools necessary for accurate and efficient field measuring and templating. Our mission is to provide the best solution for the industry and this award recognizes and validates our hard work in meeting this goal."
