Three-dimensional scanning has been widely adopted in industries including manufacturing, aerospace, and entertainment. Engineers, product designers, and researchers use 3D scanners to obtain 3D scan data which can allow them to construct 3D models or run inspections to determine deviations. Handheld 3D scanners are gaining more and more attention because of their portability, ease of operation, and quick results.
How can you choose a 3D handheld scanner to meet your needs? Here we share some tips to shed some light.
Let’s first look at the principles behind 3D handheld scanners. 3D scanners can be mainly divided into 3D laser and structured-light scanners.
