Structured Light 3D Scanner
High-precision and high-speed 3D scanning at an unbeatable price: Experience the innovative DAVID SL scanning system!
The new DAVID-SLS-2 scanner employs the innovative Structured Light technology, which allows precise 3D scanning in a matter of seconds. The scanner is mobile and can be placed easily in front of the surface to be scanned. A single click in the well-proven DAVID software starts the scan - and a few seconds later the digitized 3D model shows up on your screen!
This way you can subsequently scan all sides of the object, and finally combine them to a closed 360° model. The modular hardware setup allows a flexible adaptation to your object - any size from coin to couch is possible!
The results can be exported into common 3D file formats (OBJ, STL, PLY) and processed in other applications, e.g. for rapid prototyping, inspection, product presentations, archeology and cultural heritage, works of art, computer animations, video games... The limits are set only by your imagination!

Highly flexible 3D scanning software
This software allows inexpensive 3d scanning of objects and surfaces.
All you require is a video camera (e.g. webcam), a line laser (we offer suitable, cost-efficient laser modules), and a 90° "corner" as background.
Our Starter-Kit contains selected hardware and offers the best value for money. If you want to build your own scanner, please see FAQ for more hardware recommendations.
Structured Light Scanning
Structured Light Scanning uses a video projector instead of a laser. Advantages: No 90° corner required during scanning. No manual laser movement. Much faster scanning. Turntable support for fully-automated 360° scanning.
We recommend our SLS-2 hardware package. If you want to build your own scanner, please see FAQ for more hardware recommendations.
In order to obtain an all-around scan of your object, you simply create single scans from different directions; the DAVID 3D Scanner software is able to align and fuse the scans to a textured 360-degree-model. Of course the most comfortable way is using our TT-1 turntable, plus manually you can add scan views from the top or bottom side.
The surface data can be exported to the well-known file formats .OBJ, .STL, and .PLY. This allows you to import them in 3rd-party software for further processing, e.g. measurement, milling or 3d printing.
For copy protection, we ship a USB flash drive as dongle. It must be plugged in when you use DAVID. Like this, there is no strict binding to a single PC.
