3D scanners - Product roundups, rankings and lists of the best products
We read and summarize user reviews and community feedback from active 3D scanning sites and forums (Reddit and more) and discussion groups on Facebook. We also use our market expertise, in-depth research and hands-on product reviews to produce unbiased and up to date product lists.
Whenever possible we use our rating system, the metascore. For professional or industrial 3D scanners that are difficult to rate fairly, we provide an overview of the top products on the market, ranked in no particular order.
