Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great value
Few other scanners around this prince range are capable of a 0.1 mm resolution. This scanner also has fantastic build quality with very sturdy parts.
Pro Automated turntable for easier scanning
The automated turntable is a great feature to have, since it eliminates the need to manually monitor and manipulate the object being scanned. As the scanning process takes more than 10 minutes, you can simply relax or do other work while it's being done.
Pro Convenient positioning and alignment
Most stationary 3D scanners struggle to find the right distance between the object and the scanner to get the camera focus correctly. To make this procedure easier, Shining 3D provides an alignment guide with marked positions for the turntable and scanner.
Con Software is unintuitive
You’re likely to run into problems while producing your very first scan. Even though the software isn’t overly complex, it’s also not very intuitive to use. While the setup process is quick (requiring only setting up texture detail and light), it does not give you any sort of indication that a scan is in progress even after pressing the scan button. After a while, the points will simply appear. There’s also no message to indicate that the scan has finished.
Con Cable management is a hassle
Both the scanner and the turntable have to be connected to a computer using two individual USB cables. They also have two more individual power supply cables and a single VGA cable which is used to connect the scanner and computer. This brings the cable total to five for the whole set-up, which can be quite annoying.
