3D scanning demo on Shining3D booth.
At last year’s TCT Asia + Personalize, desktop 3D printing manufacturer Shining3D said their long-term goal is to be one of the best companies in the 3D technologies industry. A year on they’re building on that by introducing another product to their popular consumer offering in the form of an all-in-one handheld scanner that’s designed to capture everything from small household items to an entire human body.
The EinScan-Pro is a simple multi-purpose 3D scanner that can scan objects within a range of just 3 centimetres to 4 metres. Using a white light LED, the device can scan at an accuracy up to 0.05 millimetres and can do so at rapid speeds that can provide accurate digital data within seconds.
I put the EinScan-Pro to the test at TCT Asia + Personalize to see just how well it can capture a face. It was a little difficult to remain focused due to the intensity of the light and scan speed however, after just 3 full scans of my face - one for the initial outline and the final two for any missing details - the results were quite impressive. What's more it's a fairly simple device to get to grips with, with its freestyle image capture making it easy to go over an object to rectify any particular details and a simple user interface to view the captured data.
The EinScan-S is aimed at entry level users and at an expected price tag of just under $4,000 for the basic pack when it hits the market this May, it is competitively priced compared to similar products in its class.
