The Sense 3D Scanner from 3D Systems is a portable, full color, three-dimensional scanner for quickly and easily creating 3D models of real-world objects. It has a wide scan volume from small 8 x 8 x 8" items up to 118 x 118 x 118" objects. The Sense also has a convenient working distance of 15 to 60".
The Sense 3D Scanner works by using two cameras on the front of the device. One camera is utilized for capturing the shape and size information while the second is solely for color. This helps to create accurate models perfect for 3D printing. This works well with the Sense's full integration with the Cubify Sculpt software and Cubify's website for direct 3D printing from home or through the cloud.
For general operation, the scanner sends a 30 frame per second image stream over the 7' USB 3.0/2.0 cable to a Windows 7, 8, or Mac OS X 10.8 or later computer. The computer then processes the information to create a 3D model. This can then be enhanced and edited with the use of the specialized software to create printable models.
