VIRTUAL TRADE-IN - GET $75 FOR YOUR OLD 3D SCANNER
April 19, 2019
Scan Dimension delivers precision 3D scanning at an affordable price. We realize consumer level scanners have not always delivered on the promise of ease-of-use and quality scans. To demonstrate our confidence in the SOL Scanner, we're offering a virtual trade-in program to those that already own a qualifying scanner. How it works: Take two pictures of your current scanner: one picture of the unit itself and the second picture a close-up of the device serial number. Then, simply complete the online form, attach the two pictures, and submit it for our review. We will determine if the product is eligible for our trade-in program and issue a custom discount/coupon code to use toward the purchase of one SOL Scanner through our online store. What images do I need? The first image should be the unit itself. Examples of suitable images are: The second image must be of the device's serial number. This will need to be the same serial number you enter into the online form. Examples of device serial numbers: Eligible Products: The majority of desktop scanners, and some hand-held scanners currently in the market are eligible. If you own a scanner and are less thrilled with the results, submit the form with the required information. Ineligible Products: We will not offer rebates for phone/tablet apps that do not have a hardware component. Mobile devices that include a custom or after-market hardware element with a serial number will be considered. Disclaimers: Scan Dimension reserves the right to honor or deny virtual trade-in discount requests based on its sole discretion. Devices are approved for a virtual trade-in are only eligible for a single discount. Reuse of a single device (as defined by manufacturer, model, and serial number) is not allowed. Owners of the devices being offered for virtual trade-in retain their original scanner and are not required to present the actual device for trade-in. This offer is void where prohibited. Limit, one discount per SOL Scanner purchased.

SOL 3D Scanner Scan Dimension Unveils SOL, the Market’s Most User-Friendly 3D Scanner Available Makers, Tech Enthusiasts and Hobbyists Can Now Produce Professional-Grade 3D Scans at an Affordable Price Scan Dimension®, developer of 3D scanners, imaging, and realization technology, today launches SOL, an easy-to-use 3D scanner for the everyday maker, technology enthusiast, and hobbyist. Immediately available, SOL is an accurate, portable, and affordable 3D scanner that creates detailed, precise 3D models of scanned objects. The SOL viewer application allows users to export and share the model in many standard formats. “We created the SOL scanner to make 3D scanning approachable for everyone,” comments Graham Tinn, CEO of Global Scanning A/S, parent company of Scan Dimension. “Before, creating 3D models was challenging if an individual was not skilled in complex 3D modeling software. SOL empowers anyone to unleash their creativity and explore the infinite possibilities of 3D technology actualization.” SOL provides significant value for 3D technology enthusiasts. It eliminates three important hurdles to 3D scanning: complex calibration, time-consuming software manipulation, and manual mesh alignment. In the Field Makers at Hammerspace Community Workshop in Kansas City, Missouri, and Make Salt Lake makerspace in Salt Lake City, Utah, tested SOL and had this to say: “SOL is a great 3D scanner that easily competes with multi-thousand-dollar scanners that we have here at the makerspace.” – David Dalton, Hammerspace Community Workshop “This scanner is freakin’ awesome” – Hobbyist, Make Salt Lake How it Works The Scan Dimension engineering team focused on developing an incredibly easy-to-use scanner. To start a scan, users simply place an object on a turntable, cover it with the included tent, and press a button — the laser, camera, and software do the rest. SOL notifies users of next steps with sounds or text messages. SOL features near- and far-mode scanning, and supports the following dimensions and maximum weight: For near-mode scanning, an object up to 100 mm in diameter and 100 mm tall (3.9 by 3.9 inches).
