The EinScan Discovery Pack and HD Prime Pack upgrade SHINING’s existing hardware with color and further detail, contributing the company’s complete “3D scan to 3D print” solution.
Oscar Meza, SHINING 3D’s V.P. of Global Sales comments, “We successfully launched EinScan-Pro+, the multifunctional handheld 3D scanner and EinScan SE&SP desktop 3D scanners last year, which offer our customers more choices to meet their most varied demands.”
“This year, we refine the EinScan Series by adding two new powerful accessories, which strengthen the capabilities and expand the range of applications.”
Colorful 3D scans
The EinScan Discovery is a tripod 3D scanner based on the EinScan-SE (Elite) and EinScan-SP models seen in our visit to SHINING EMEA HQ last year.
In addition to a 3D surface, the Discover is capable of capturing color by using an Ultra-FineTM Hardware ISP video processing engine.
At a rate of up to 3.0 megapixel per operation, color texture is captured at 12.0 megapixels – similar values as a digital camera. To help with the process, the 3D scanner also has a built-in 24-bit true-color display.
SHINING recommends the Discovery pack for customers creating “virtual reality, online shopping (eCommerce) virtual display, online museum, 3D exhibition and more.”
The handheld EinScan HD Prime has two modes – one for rapid 3D scanning, the other for capturing finer “high definition” details.
Essentially a souped-up EinScan-Pro+ the HD Prime’s Rapid Scan improves the speed of its predecessor by 30%. This mode is perfect for quick capture of objects that will later be refined in 3D design software.
Captured data is smooth, and small details are skipped in favour of the overall shape of an object.
HD mode, by comparison, picks out an object’s details, ideally working indoors. According to SHINING the HD Prime is ideal for applications such as “Reverse Designing, Cultural Heritage Preservation, Archiving [and] Restoration.”
Installed with SHINING’s latest 3D scanning software update, the Prime is also capable of capturing a object without the need for using stick-on light markers, make the process less labor intensive.
The HD Prime operates at a rate of 10 frames per second and, like the EinScan Discovery the distance between scanned point data is typically 0.09-0.12 mm.
