Worlds Most Affordable 3D Scanner – The ZScanner 600

zscanner600A new 3D scanner has been unveiled by the Z Corporation company. They claim it’s the worlds most affordable 3D scanner, but at a price of $28,900 it’s still not cheap.

The camera is capable of capturing 3D data and putting that data in to a computer and has a resolution of 0.1mm with an accuracy of up to 80 microns.

The ZScanner 600 is a handheld device that you use to capture a number of shots of your subject and the data is then pieced together to create a 3D model.

The ZScanner 600 is supplied with the ZScan Lite software that can create a .stl file as well as many other formats that 3D CAD and design packages can then import. The mesh can then be output to a 3D printer if needed.

The scanner ‘paints the object being scanned with a laser crosshair and the surface is then scanned by the binocular cameras. The software the scanner runs on generates a mesh of the surface on the computer screen in real-time. The object being scanned can be moved during the scanning process. The scanner is available to purchase now.
