SHOWCASE

SOL 3D scanner scans objects between 25 and 170 mm in diameter and height.

In general, surfaces that are best to 3D scan are matte, opaque, and light in color. And the easiest shapes are asymmetrical with abundant scan alignment features. Here is a small collection of objects whose surfaces and shapes are ideal for 3D scanning with SOL 3D scanner.

Example of ideal surface and shape to 3D scan

Included in the purchase of SOL 3D scanner is a test object: A yellow rubber duck. This object is perfect for scanning because the surface is light and the shape has distinct features which makes it easier for the software to automatically merge scanning passes, if more than one.

How many scanning passes are needed?

The dragon figurine is also a great object to scan with SOL 3D scanner. Notice how the details are reproduced very clearly, even in wireframe view. The object’s surface is close to being shiny which can be a problem for 3D scanners in general, but the result looks great with very lifelike colors.

This object has abundant features which simplifies the merging of scanning passes. But since some parts are hidden from the scanner’s laser depending on the position on the turntable, the dragon would require three scanning passes for all surface to be seen by the camera and laser.

In general, a scanning with SOL 3D scanner only gets better with added scanning passes if these contribute to the 3D model with parts of the object that are yet to be scanned. So scan just enough passes to have the whole surface seen by the camera and laser once.

3D scanning and 3D printing go hand in hand

We love this scanning of a plaster cast of a hand. It's such great way to safely store a great memory. And should the cast ever disappear or break, it's possible to 3D print a copy or two.

Note that the shape and surface again is ideal to scan - matte and light in color and the features of the object makes it easy to automatically align multiple scanning passes. The wireframe together with the surface image will make the 3D model of the hand keep all the smaller details.
