SOL, the Market’s Most User-Friendly 3D Scanner
Tools make the Maker. At Scan Dimension, we recognize better tools enable you to achieve your desired 3D scanning and printing outcomes. We designed SOL to be accurate, precise, portable, affordable and easy to use. Turn it – Make it, today.
MEET OUR NEWEST 3D SCANNER
What do you want to make, design, replace, improve, create, or explore? The possibilities are endless! Our vision is to engineer an incredibly accurate scanner, enabled with the single push of a button, at a price most anyone can afford. Once SOL is connected to your computer, and calibrated, just place your object on the turn-table, cover it with the already included tent, and let SOL do its magic!
Take SOL for a 3D spin
SOL is made with durable and attractive materials. Additionally, SOL provides everything you need, including a scan target, so you can go from unboxing to scanning within minutes.
Turn It | Make It
SOL uses a turn-table for a 360° view to create a holistic 3D model. Whether you are an Engineer, Maker, Designer, or Hobbyist, you can turn your ideas into reality with SOL.
PRECISE & AFFORDABLE
SOL features 0.1mm scan accuracy, competing with the best and most expensive scanners on the market. Our mission is to provide our customers with professional accuracy, without a premium price.

SOL captures multiple images and spatial data via its camera and laser to make an accurate digital replica
"Just Brilliant. I was able to scan an incredibly small model head with minute details like a clef chin and it was visible in a zoom! Super happy. As reference this was a 1/12 scale human head."
– Austin, Texas
“I learned how to use this scanner today and it is freakin' awesome! We only did a single scan, but I will definitely be back to do more!!!”
– Hobbyist at Make Salt Lake
“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
"I have access to several mid-price scanning options and several very expensive units. For the price, this unit performed very well on a resin-cast gnome that I've used for a scan target in other systems. The first scan came out perfectly and with a watertight STL file ready to print."
– Maker in Texas
"I found the quality of construction excellent, and the assembly easy. My only criticism is that it takes time. I'm eager to make more scans with this unit. The software was very intuitive and ran smoothly on my laptop."
– Eric Albert
"Wow the resolution is amazing and the software so simple a 10 year old mastered it in a few minutes. It simply doesn't get any better than this. I loved how they used a turn table and then had the laser actually able to scan as well."
– Ken McClain
SOL 3D Scanner - Overview SOL Viewer - Part 1
September 12, 2019
SOL Viewer Demonstration of the SOL Viewer tools and features. Scanned models can be zoomed and rotated as well as rendered several different ways, including shaded, faceted, x-ray, and wireframe. We especially liked the wireframes because we can really study the quality of the meshed scan to decide if I needed to reorient the object for features that were missed on the initial scan(s).
Product Review by Cairowest: SOL 3D Scanner: Easy, Inexpensive, Precise
September 06, 2019
We get asked all the time to evaluate 3D scanners using various technologies/methods and widely ranging price points. The high-end, high-priced scanners perform great, but literally at a cost. On the other hand, so-called low-end, relatively low-price scanners are generally a “what you pay is what you get” proposition, so don’t get your hopes up.
