3D printing has become an integral part of manufacturing as well as hobby making. Printers have improved greatly, and newer, better versions are constantly being released. But the challenge of a good, affordable 3D scanner continues to plague the industry. With so much emphasis being placed on the printer itself, it’s refreshing to see a company like Scan Dimension bringing a quality scanner to market.
The SOL 3D Scanner by Scan Dimension is accurate—it has a 0.1mm accuracy rating. Using a camera and laser, SOL is able to capture multiple images and spatial data of the scanned object. The original is placed on a turntable that rotates the subject 360 degrees, creating a complete 3D model.
Scan Dimension didn’t just want to create an accurate and precise scanner; they also wanted to make sure that it was easily usable. With just the push of a button, you can start scanning. Additionally, the scanner comes with everything you need to get set up and scanning within just a couple of minutes.
SOL is made of high-quality materials, making it solid and durable so you don’t have to worry about breaking anything or knocking things out of alignment.
Perhaps most importantly, however, Scan Dimension is living up to its promise of creating an affordable 3D scanner.
