Researcher and developer for 3D digitization and additive manufacturing technologies Shining 3D adds a new line of handheld color 3D scanners, the EinScan H and HX, to its EinScan series portfolio. Both scanner lines integrate an additional light source for a broader range of applications and scanning requirements.
The EinScan H uses an infrared invisible light source for an easy and reliably digitization of hair and dark medium- to large-sized objects, and the built-in color camera is said to deliver authentic color scanning data. According to the company, innovative software algorithms, combined with the freedom of choosing the most suitable light source for scanning, qualify the EinScan H for high-quality full human body data acquisition including hair, authentic digital replication of outstanding art pieces, furniture digitization for reproduction and virtual display and many more. Typical EinScan features comprising user-friendly handling and software, ergonomic design and plug-and-play characteristics round off the EinScan H’s advantages. Accessible, and flexible, the portable scanner can applicable in the medical sector, art and heritage and education.
With dual blue light, EinScan HX is said to combines the advantages of LED and laser, boosting the adaptability of the technology for demanding industrial applications. In rapid scan mode, blue LED structured light is used for capturing object data, and 3D data can be obtained quickly without having to apply reference points. The laser scanning mode is equipped with multiple blue laser lines ensuring high accuracy and enabling 3D scanning of reflective metal surfaces quickly, providing high-quality 3D data for reverse design, CAD/CAM and 3D printing. Further, scanning black surface and metal is now possible.
