Chinese 3D scanning and printing company SHINING 3D has launched a new handheld 3D scanning device, the EinScan Pro HD. The multi-functional device is the latest in the company’s EinScan Pro series and offers “unparalleled performance” in capturing high-res and high-accuracy scans for a range of applications.
The EinScan Pro HD is ideal for design or engineering applications which require a high degree of detail and accuracy. The high-resolution of the handheld system is achieved in part thanks to the integration of a new projection light structure. Specifically, the stripe pattern scanning traditionally used in Fixed Scan Mode has been adapted and implemented for Handheld HD Scan Mode. According to SHINING 3D, when used in Fixed Scan Mode, the system can reach accuracies of up to 0.04 mm, while in Handheld HD Scan mode, the volumetric accuracy is up to 0.045 mm+0.3mm/m.
The updated light projection hardware, as well as an improved software algorithm also enable the EinScan Pro HD scanner to capture a wider range of objects, including those with dark or black surfaces as well as those with casting metal surfaces. In terms of speed, the new handheld scanner can capture up to three million points per second (USB 3.0).
The new 3D scanner is designed to be used in combination with ExScan Pro, SHINING 3D’s professional software for 3D scanning and data processing. The platform integrates a number of features, including scan and mesh editing tools, and is designed for both novice and expert users.
SHINING 3D highlights a number of applications for the versatile new 3D scanner, including manufacturing and reverse engineering, custom product development, art and heritage, digital medical analysis, custom orthotics and prosthetics and more. Last month, SHINING 3D introduced an automated desktop inspection system for 3D printed and other types of parts called the AutoScan Inspec.
