The company It is 3D has added a more powerful specification scanner to its range of 3D products. For use in industry as an alternative to other equipment, it is priced at a level that makes it accessible to the educational market and the hobbyist. It helps bring 3D capability to everyone.
This is a 3D scanner that allows everyone to create precise and beautifully presented 3D scan data, quickly, easily and affordably.
The DAVID SLS-1 scanner uses Structured Light technology, for precise 3D scanning in a matter of seconds. The scanner is mobile and can easily be put in front of an object to be scanned. A single click starts the scan – and a few seconds later the digitized 3D model shows up on your screen.
You can then scan all sides of the object, and combine them to create a closed 360° model. The modular hardware set up enables you to scan your object – any size.
The results can be exported into common 3D file formats [STL, OBJ, PLY] and processed in other applications, for rapid prototyping, inspection, product presentations, archaeology and cultural heritage, works of art, computer animations, video games… the limits are set only by your imagination.
The DAVID SLS-1 is a complete 3D scanner, capable of digitizing tiny or large objects with an astonishing level of detail for less than $2,674.
You can arrange your scan setup according to object size and required scan precision. In combination with a laptop you get a very stable and mobile scan solution. The Structured Light method operates without moving mechanical parts.
After calibrating the scanner using the calibration panels provided, each scan is performed with a single mouse click. The software creates a triangle mesh and presents it in its 3D viewer. This way, multiple views can be scanned and collected – all around, top and bottom.
Align and merge your textured scans to create watertight all round triangle meshes with just a few mouse clicks, and export them to common CAD file formats [ST, OBJ, PLY] that can be imported by most 3D tools. The 3D data are stored in absolute scale, making them suitable for measurements, comparisons and 3D milling or printing.
