DSLRs do not automatically equate to quality. The DSLR approach to quality is to capture an excessive amount of data and hope that enough of it is accurate enough produce a good 3D model, which requires significant processing time and does not always result in a usable capture. We focus instead on guaranteeing the data we capture is accurate with a new hybrid approach to 3D scanning. This allows us to achieve a very similar level of detail to a DSLR system, but far more consistently and using much smaller and cheaper components. Regardless, the Twinstant Mobile’s combination of cameras, projectors, and advanced software produce 3D models of much higher quality than a full-color 3D printer can print.
