Scan Dimension, developer of 3D scanners, imaging, and realization technology,has launched SOL, an easy-to-use 3D laser scanner. SOL is an accurate, portable, and affordable 3D scanner that creates detailed and precise 3D models of scanned objects. The SOL viewer application allows users to export and share the model in many standard formats.
“We created the SOL scanner to make 3D scanning approachable for everyone,” comments Graham Tinn, CEO of Global Scanning A/S, parent company of Scan Dimension. “Before, creating 3D models was challenging if an individual was not skilled in complex 3D modeling software. SOL empowers anyone to unleash their creativity and explore the infinite possibilities of 3D technology actualization.”
SOL provides significant value for 3D technology enthusiasts. It eliminates three important hurdles to 3D scanning: complex calibration, time-consuming software manipulation, and manual mesh alignment.
The Scan Dimension engineering team focused on developing an incredibly easy-to-use scanner. To start a scan, users simply place an object on a turntable, cover it with the included tent, and press a button — the laser, camera, and software do the rest.
SOL notifies users of next steps with sounds or text messages. SOL features near- and far-mode scanning, and supports the following dimensions and maximum weight:
- Near-mode scanning – object up to 100 mm in diameter and 100 mm tall..
- Far-mode scanning – object up to 170 mm in diameter and 170 mm tall.
- Maximum object weight 2kg.
SOL requires PC Windows 10 or Mac OS X 10.13 (High Sierra). Hardware requirements include a 64-bit processor with dual core RAM, 5 GB hard disk space or higher, OpenGL 3.3+ compatible graphics card, 1024 x 768 pixel display or higher, 2 USB 2.0 ports available.
