Recommendation needed for high accuracy hand-held scanner

Post by neeravbm »


My friend is looking for a high-accuracy hand-held scanner. Price is not an issue. Max object size is going to be 6" x 6" x 6". Accuracy needs to be sub-mm. In his words, 100 micron is really good and 2 mm is really bad. The object is going to be metallic but he can cover it with polymer if needed so that it doesn't shine.

Which hand-held scanner would you recommend?

Thank you.

What are you doing with the scans? Will they be putting them into another post processing paw package to manipulate, reverse engineer, etc?
Artec has a new “Micro” - that is supposed to be very fine resolution - I can put you in touch with my rep that can arrange a demo. The Artec Space Spider may get that low - I’d have to look up the specs - the Artec Studio is a decent S/W package to do clean up from your scan, and can export to many other S/W packages the Cloud scan.
