Tapping into the MINI 2 3D scanner’s superior features

The Revopoint MINI 2 is an advanced 3D scanner designed to capture intricate details on small objects with exceptional precision. Utilizing blue light technology, it achieves a single-frame precision of up to 0.02 mm and an impressive accuracy reaching up to 0.05 mm. This means it can reliably capture even the tiniest details on objects.

In terms of scanning capabilities, the MINI 2 is equipped with a maximum single-frame scanning range of 168 mm × 132 mm @ 250 mm. This provides enhanced object tracking and a more versatile approach to capturing various objects. Additionally, the scanner boasts an increased scanning speed of up to 16 fps, making it efficient at capturing details swiftly.

Having undergone significant upgrades, the RGB Camera now features a doubled pixel count and a larger aperture, enabling it to capture more intricate color details. The addition of an LED Flash system enhances color capture by eliminating shadows from objects, resulting in more uniform and realistic color representation. To ensure stability during scans, the MINI 2 is equipped with a 9-axis IMU that measures every movement, eliminating misaligned frames caused by shaky hands or rapid movements, and ensuring the scanner always knows its precise location.

Regarding connectivity, the MINI 2 features a new USB Type-C port for data, power, and swift setup. Wi-Fi 6 adoption improves connectivity, ensuring lower latency and stability for mobile scanning applications. Leveraging three tactile buttons for scan control, one to start/pause scans and the other two “+/-” buttons for adjusting Depth Cameras’ exposure during the scanning process, the MINI 2’s enhanced control contributes to a user-friendly, convenient, and efficient experience during operation.

The accompanying software, Revo Scan 5, serves as an intuitive portal for 3D scanning and powerful editing. Compatible with iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices, this software supports exporting models in STL, PLY, or OBJ formats, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of CAD, 3D modeling, and slicer software.

1. Precision is how close repeated measurements of the same object are to each other. Accuracy is how close a measured value is to the actual (true) value. They were both acquired in a controlled lab environment. Actual results might vary, subject to the operation environment.
2. Class 1 Laser: Avoid direct eye exposure for extended periods. Refer to Standards for Class 1 Lasers for details.
3. Outdoor scans should avoid direct sunlight.
4. MINI 2 has flashing lights, which may not be suitable for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
