What is claimed as a ‘first of its kind’, Calibry from Thord3D is a hand-held 3D scanner developed to capture medium and large objects. It has a built-in touchscreen for ease-of-use during scanning and weighs a mere 700gr (1.5lbs). Calibry can capture historically-difficult objects to scan such as sharp edges and black/shiny items. It has a built-in texture camera (2.3MP) and collects up to 3 million points per second. Calibry guarantees users a fast, professional, accurate result with a quoted accuracy of 0.1mm with a resolution up to 0.3mm) at an affordable price.
Notably, Calibry is the next evolutionary step in the company’s development. Previously, Thor3D used off-the shelf cameras in all its scanners. For this new device, the company undertook a long and arduous road of developing a proprietary camera (patent pending). This tactic, rarely used by 3D scanner manufacturers for being expensive and onerous, allowed Thor3D to significantly lower the price tag of Calibry and provided the needed flexibility to develop a device that can capture traditionally-difficult objects.
“I am confident that this device will be very popular with engineers, medical practitioners and educators because it is affordable, easy to use and can scan objects that were difficult to scan before” states Anna Zevelyov, CEO of Thor3D.
Thor3D, based out of Dusseldorf, Germany and Moscow, Russia has been developing hand-held 3D scanners since 2015 and best known for being the first company to bring to market a wireless, hand-held scanner.
