3D Scanning Technologies: Handheld Scanners

Handheld Scanners Technology overview: Handheld 3D scanners used in 3D photography typically rely on structured light to calculate the geometry of the subject being 3D scanned. They were designed for and have numerous applications in engineering. Average Cost: $400 to $30,000 How it works: 3D scanning someone with a handheld 3D scanner works by having the person stand still as you slowly move the 3D scanner around them to capture the different parts of their body. The process normally takes 2-3 minutes. Once the data has been captured, some manual intervention is necessary to match resulting point clouds, then it…

Are there special power and connectivity requirements when operating the Twinstant Mobile outside the United States?

Without the lighting kit: The Twinstant requires either…. TWO dedicated 120V/15A circuits or a SINGLE dedicated 120V/20A circuit. International transformers are available to convert from 240V.

The Twinstant Mobile can take captures without an Internet connection; however, a reliable Internet connection is required to sync the offline captures stored on the supplied laptop with the Twindom Platform.

What is a 3D Preview Model?

A 3D Preview Model is a 3D model we process as soon as the raw photo data from the Twinstant Mobile is submitted to the Twindom Cloud Platform for processing. The purpose of the 3D Preview Model  is to provide a basic, digital representation of the final 3D printed figurine while the customer is still onsite. In contrast to the full resolution, print-quality 3D model that is processed when a customer places a print order, a 3D Preview Model is processed using only a minimum viable amount of data (~15 MB) to speed up the processing time (5-10 minutes) and ensure…
