3D Scanners

Everything you need to know about SHINING 3D’s new EinScan H and HX 3D scanners

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Last month, 3D printing and scanning specialist SHINING 3D unveiled two new scanning solutions for full-color, handheld 3D scanning. The products, EinScan H and EinScan HX, both utilize hybrid light technology, meaning that they use a combination of two light sources for different functionalities. If you had any questions about how the scanners work or what applications they are suitable for, the following Q&A will shed some more light on SHINING 3D’s new scanning systems.

EinScan H, your questions answered

EinScan H 3D scanner

First up, let’s take a closer look at the EinScan H, a cost-friendly scanning solution that combines LED light scanning and Invisible Infrared to achieve full-color 3D scanning.

  • What applications can I use the EinScan H for?

The EinScan H is suitable for a wide range of applications, including in art and heritage, forensics, virtual display and healthcare. The handheld scanner’s infrared light source also makes it possible to capture data from objects that are typically challenging to scan, like hair and dark colors. The EinScan H is also capable of scanning large objects thanks to a scanning speed of 1.2 million points per second and a field of vision (FOV) spanning 420 x 440 mm. EinScan H 3D scanner

  • Can I use the EinScan H for fixed scanning?

No, the EinScan H is a handheld 3D scanning solution.

  • How does the EinScan H compare to the EinScan Pro series for human body scanning?

The EinScan H has a larger scanning range than SHINING 3D’s EinScan Pro series, which facilitates human body scanning. The EinScan H also integrates an optimized alignment algorithm that accounts for small movements of the person or object being scanned. In other words, the EinScan H makes scanning the human body both easier and faster.

The hybrid light 3D scanner also comes with a face scanning mode, which uses the invisible infrared light source to effectively scan darker surfaces as well as tricky surface textures, like hair.

  • Can I capture color data using the EinScan H?

Yes, the EinScan H has a built-in color camera and is capable of full-color 3D scanning.

  • What computer configuration should I use with the EinScan H?

SHINING 3D recommends the following computer configuration for optimal use of its handheld scanner: Win10 operating system, 64 bit; NVIDIA GTX1080 graphics card; ≥4G video memory; 17-8700 processor; and ≥32GB of memory.

  • Does the EinScan H have any post-processing functions?

Yes, the 3D scanning solution offers a range of post-processing functions, including data simplification, hole filling, smoothing, sharpening, measuring and movement.

  • Are there any add-ons for the EinScan H?

No, the EinScan H is a complete solution.

EinScan HX, your questions answered

EinScan HX 3D scanner

SHINING 3D’s EinScan HX scanner, unveiled at the same time as the EinScan H, is also a hybrid system, combining LED scan technology with blue laser light. This hybrid light source enables the scanner to capture a broad range of materials and surfaces in ambient light.

  • What applications can I use the EinScan HX for?

The EinScan HX can be used for a broad range of industrial applications, including in the automotive, shipbuilding, machining and research fields. Its blue laser light source is ideal for scanning reflective surfaces like metal as well as dark objects. The EinScan HX also has a rapid scan mode of up to 1.2 million points per second, ideal for efficiently capturing large objects, and a minimum point distance of 0.05 mm and up to 0.04 mm accuracy, making it ideal for reverse engineering and measuring applications.

  • Can I use the EinScan HX for fixed scanning?

No, the EinScan HX is a handheld 3D scanning solution.

  • Can the EinScan HX capture color data?

Yes, the EinScan HX has a built-in color camera and can capture full-color data in rapid scan mode.

  • What types of surfaces can the EinScan HX scan?

Using the scanner’s laser scan mode, users can easily capture reflective and dark color surfaces, such as metal, as well as objects in ambient light.

  • What are the benefits of blue light for 3D scanning?

Compared to laser and white light, blue laser light is a stronger light source, which makes it better for capturing dark or reflective surfaces. Moreover, because blue light is less prevalent than white light, it has less interference in the scanning environment.

  • What computer configuration should I use with the EinScan HX?

SHINING 3D recommends the following computer configuration for optimal use of its handheld scanner: Win10 operating system, 64 bit; NVIDIA GTX1080 graphics card or higher; ≥4G video memory; 17-8700 processor; and ≥32GB of memory.

  • Does the EinScan HX have any post-processing functions?

Yes, the 3D scanning solution offers a range of post-processing functions, including data simplification, hole filling, smoothing, sharpening, measuring and movement.

  • Are there any add-ons for the EinScan HX?

No, the EinScan HX is a complete solution.

Both of SHINING 3D’s newest 3D scanning products feature the company’s ergonomic handheld design and lightweight structure (each weighs just over 700 grams) for comfortable and user-friendly operation. Both solutions are compatible with the Chinese company’s EinScan software platform.
