3D Scanners

Revopoint launches INSPIRE: a versatile, cost-effective, and user-friendly 3D scanner

3D scanner manufacturer Revopoint is set to launch its new versatile and cost-effective Revopoint INSPIRE 3D scanner. This new 3D scanner will be launched through a Kickstarter campaign which will run from 16th August – 16th September 2023.  

Revopoint is a global company that seeks to make 3D scanning more accessible and affordable. Founded back in 2014, the company has since run four successful Kickstarter campaigns, receiving backing from 22,839 people.   

The company’s founding team includes Ph.D. experts from internationally renowned research institutes, and is said to be at the forefront of 3D scanning innovation. As such, Revopoint’s 3D scanners, which offer high-quality performance, portability, and ease of use, have made the company an industry sales leader. In fact, the company boasts end-users in over 150 countries and regions worldwide, providing tens of thousands of 3D makers worldwide with accurate, accessible, and affordable 3D scanners.

Prospective customers can sign-up now for the chance to access a Kickstarter super early bird offer, and receive 38% off their Revopoint INSPIRE 3D scanner order. 

Key features of the new Revopoint INSPIRE 3D Scanner 

The new Revopoint INSPIRE 3D Scanner offers a wide range of features for straightforward, high-quality 3D scanning.  

Key to the 3D scanner is its speed and accuracy. Designed to capture medium-sized objects, the INSPIRE can scan at speeds of 14-18FPS, with a single frame accuracy of 0.2mm. The 3D scanner also offers high-speed internet connectivity, further bolstering the speed at which makers can perform their 3D scans. This is achievable through either stable wireless scanning with WiFi-6, or with a Type-C USB connection.

The Revopoint INSPIRE 3D Scanner also boasts a versatile single-frame scan range of 230*140mm, and a working scanning distance of 250mm – 500mm. Weighing only 140g, the 3D scanner is portable and suitable for flexible handheld use. Equally, the 3D scanner can be used as a turntable scanner, with a mini turntable included as part of the INSPIRE package.  

The 3D scanner also incorporates enhanced marker tracking capabilities, with INSPIRE’s dual infrared LEDs providing extra marker illumination. The addition of intelligent algorithms further improve the 3D scanner’s functionality. Moreover, a white LED next to the RGB camera ensures that the scanned object is evenly lit, enabling accurate full-color scans. Revopoint’s new Magic Mat, a 50cm x 50cm foldable mat with pre-placed marker points included with the INSPIRE scanner, can be used for straightforward, featureless object scans.

The 3D scanner also includes smart stabilization capabilities, leveraging Revopoint’s self-developed 3D vision technology system and 9-axis IMU. This provides a highly stable 3D scanning experience, mitigating faulty frames caused by shaking hands or fast movement.

The Revopoint INSPIRE 3D Scanner also offers wide-ranging cross-platform compatibility. The new Revopoint scanner is compatible with Windows 10/11, macOS, Android, and iOS. The INSPIRE scanner works with Revopoint’s all-in-one software Revo Scan 5.0. Redesigned from the ground up, this software includes a new intuitive UI and offers one-clock post-processing. Through this software, users can export STL, OBJ, and PLY files. Moreover,  unlike other 3D scanners, Revopoint INSPIRE 3D Scanner doesn’t require a powerful PC to function, only requiring i5, 8GB RAM.
