How to choose the right 3D scanner to meet your needs?

Is the lowest price the best price?
Is the highest spec model the right one for you?

Carefully evaluating all the product specifications and thoroughly comparing the different models with each other can be a bit daunting, especially if you are new to this technology.

This resource covers the key specifications of each model to help you to select the device that perfectly meets your specific needs.

Covering all the relevant aspects from accuracy, resolution, scan speed, scan size and light source – we hope that this will be a reliable companion for you on the journey to finding the 3D scanner suiting your requirements.

Don’t forget – you can always ask us too 🙂

The main advantage of laser scanning is that it is less sensitive to environment light and performs better in scanning shiny or dark surfaces – and most of the laser scanners are typically handheld.
However, very shiny or transparent surfaces are also difficult to capture by laser scanning.
Projecting light pattern rather than a laser line, a structured light 3D scanner can capture a large size in seconds, and also guarantees a high level of accuracy and high resolution.
The light source is not hazardous to the human eyesight, so structure light scanning technology can be used to scan people. Structure light scanners can be tripod mounted for stational scanning, and also used in handheld mode to scan by going around the objects. However, it is sensitive to environment light conditions and reflective parts.

3.3 Resolution Comparison

Before making a conclusion, let’s check out below screenshots of data scanned in handheld HD mode respectively by EinScan Pro HD and EinScan Pro 2X 2020, and standard mode respectively by EinScan H and EinScan HX.
Judging from the comparison of data quality, we can easily know that EinScan Pro HD and EinScan Pro 2X 2020 do a better job in the fi ne detail capturing, due to their different projecting patterns in handheld HD mode.
Below are the screenshots of data scanned by fi xed scan mode respectively by EinScan Pro HD and EinScan Pro 2X 2020. The resolution captured by EinScan Pro 2X 2020 is marginally better than EinScan Pro HD. This is because the single scan range of EinScan Pro 2X 2020 is smaller than that of EinScan Pro HD.
