The Sense scanner from 3D Systems is a fantastic portable 3D scanner that produces high resolution, usable 3D scans. We used this scanner to scan the faces of some of the employees at the office and had terrific results. The scanner is fully portable so you can scan any object regardless of whether it is large or small.
This portable, full color scanner creates accurate scans in a matter of minutes. You can scan objects as small as 0.2m x 0.2m x0.2m or as large as 2m x 2m x 2m. This scanner utilizes two cameras on the front of the scanner to create accurate scans. The first camera gathers the shape and size of an object while the second camera captures the color of your object. We found that this scanner works particularly well for capturing scans of people’s faces.
The Sense has a very useful feature called automatic object recognition. This allows the scanner to only capture the object you are scanning and to ignore any background objects. Additionally the scanner uses a class 1 laser which means that this scanner is safe and will not harm people.
