3D Scanners

All-new Lynx 3D scanner from 3DMakerpro offers high accuracy and portability

High-precision 3D scanner manufacturer 3DMakerpro has launched its new 3D scanner dubbed Lynx. 

The Lynx 3D Scanner is a portable and affordable option that offers high accuracy in 3D scanning. It finds utility in various fields like art, design, and industrial design, and is also suitable for generating 3D models for 3D printing purposes. Additionally, it is accompanied by JMStudio scanning software designed exclusively for 3DMakerpro.

Superior accuracy and resolution for highly detailed scans

The Lynx 3D Scanner boasts a high level of accuracy, with measurements as precise as 0.10mm, allowing for the creation of highly detailed and accurate 3D scans of objects. It also offers a resolution of 0.30mm, ensuring that even the smallest details can be captured effectively. 

When it comes to scanning large objects, the Lynx 3D Scanner employs an optical stabilizer and advanced visual tracking technology to ensure smooth scanning without the need for markers, minimizing misalignment risks. Its advanced visual tracking capabilities enable the scanner to effectively capture objects that are challenging to mark, such as people or animals.

One notable advantage of the Lynx scanner is its Single Capture Range, which measures 400 × 250mm. This range is 200% larger compared to conventional mid-format scanners. Additionally, the Lynx scanner enables users to scan objects with dimensions of up to 5000 x 5000 x 5000mm, which represents a significant improvement of 3700%.

Effortless scanning and editing with JMStudio

JMStudio provides a user-friendly scanning experience that yields superior 3D scanning results, even for individuals new to the process. The software incorporates smart editing features, streamlining the processing of scanned projects with a single click, resulting in “satisfying” 3D models effortlessly. 

Additionally, JMStudio supports file exports in formats such as OBJ, STL, and ASC, enabling users to further edit, refine, render, or print their scans using their preferred design software. It is available for Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android devices. For iOS and Android connectivity, the use of the Connect accessory is necessary.
