If you don’t fancy building your very own 3D scanner using DIY kits that are available on the market and via crowdfunding websites such as Kickstarter.
You may be interested in a new EinScan-S 3D scanner created by Chinese manufacturer Shining 3D that has been unveiled this month during CES 2015.
Shining has designed their new EinScan-S 3D scanner to be able to capture smaller objects in roughly 3 minutes from its revolving turntable, and have equipped it with a structured light phase shifting technology that projects a structured pattern of light onto the target object, making the scanning process much quicker than its competitors.
The EinScan-S 3D scanner is equipped with two modes, in the form of an automatic scan and a free scan mode. As the name suggests the automatic scan will create a 3D digital image of any objects that are placed on the revolving turntable, scanning volumes up to a size of 215 x 215 x 200mm. While the free scan mode can be used to map larger objects and scan volumes up to 700 x 700 x 700 mm.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet for the EinScan-S 3D scanner by Shining 3D, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
