3D Scanning Process
3D scanners pick up the contours and shape of objects to recreate them on a computer when 3D scanning. It is used to recreate existing objects using CAD programs.
Smaller objects are scanned on a turntable (rotating base plate) that feeds data into the CAD software for a 3D scanning technician to then help recreate a replica of the desired object. If the object is too large for the turntable, we would use a handheld scanner that will also similarly input data into the CAD software.
At Additive3D, we use the EinScan-Pro or the EinScan-Pro+ for 3D scanning.
EinScan-Pro and EinScan-Pro+
The EinScan-Pro is your best choice for capturing real-world data to convert into a digital 3D model. It can be used for consumer and commercial applications in manufacturing, engineering, design, development, testing, artwork archival, animation and even human form acquisition. The EinScan-Pro 3D scanner allows you to use physical objects to better conceptualize an idea or create a starting point for modelling in CAD (Computer-Aided Design).
The EinScan-Pro+ has the same excellent scanning quality of the EinScan-pro. It has 4 different scanning modes- Handheld Rapid scan, Handheld HD scan, Fixed Scan without Turntable and Fixed Scan with Turntable. These modes provide fast and efficient scanning with the ease of the handheld design. Though both the Einscan Pro and Pro+ look similar, the Pro+ improves the handheld 3D scanning function and has many more new features. The EinScan Pro+ has 100 data lines, while the EinScan Pro only has 7. Furthermore, the scanning speed is up to 550,000 points per second. The scanning range has been enlarged by 1.6 times while the data acquisition speed has increased 7.6 times. This new model can also scan industrial parts and fine objects to high accuracy. It can also scan large objects such as wood carvings and stone carving.
