TYPICAL SOL 3D SCANNER USAGE

SOL 3D scanner provides an easy-to-use solution for creating digital copies of real-world objects. The scanner can help a variety of users achieve their goals regardless if their 3D workflow is modelling, 3D printing or sharing.

See more about the typical SOL usage in these applications:

Calibration and meshing
are fully automated processes

SOFTWARE WITH MINIMAL USER INTERVENTION

SOL 3D scanner includes specialized software for download: ‘SOL Creator’ for scanning and ‘SOL Viewer’ for inspection and exporting of files.
Let SOL Creator guide you smoothly through the whole process with automated processes for both calibration and meshing, and save time and effort.

In short, this is what happens:

  • Calibration makes sure your scanner and turntable are working properly together.
  • Scanning in up to five passes with your object scanned in different orientations optimizes the texture. The option ‘Turbo’ doubles the speed.
  • Meshing is where the different information from the scanning passes is combined into a 3D model.

After scanning, you can view the 3D model in different renderings in SOL Viewer before exporting to various third-party 3D software for comparison, editing, measuring or 3D printing.

SOL software is available for Windows.
