Revisiting the flagship EinScan product range

The EinScan range of 3D scanners emerged as a huge success on Kickstarter 2015. Backed by around 200 contributors, Shining 3D’s first EinScan-S was a stationary desktop model with an automatic turntable.

Shining 3D has never ceased developing its products since then and is today one of the 3D scanner industry’s leading brands. They offer high-quality products and software at a price that helps make the latest 3D capture technology available to businesses of all sizes.

EinScan flagship scanners have now grown into professional handheld 3D scanners which continue to produce consistent results, as our team has witnessed hands-on through multiple Shining 3D scanner reviews.

Hence, the brand new EinScan H and HX series is built on years of experience. These scanners offer more accuracy and versatility than ever before, with hybrid scanning technology as well as smart presets and modes to cater to numerous industries and applications.

By using invisible infrared light, Shining 3D’s goal is to make body scanning more comfortable, especially for face 3D scanning.

Infrared light also enables the scanner to capture dark surfaces, allowing for easy hair capture during 3D body scanning, for example.

Thanks to its integrated color capture capabilities and, more importantly, its invisible light scanning method, the EinScan H is perfectly suited for industries involving body scanning.

These namely include:

  • Healthcare: Digital diagnosis, orthotics, and prosthetics
  • Product customization: Clothing, shoes
  • Entertainment: Animation, video games, CGI, virtual reality
  • Forensics: Evidence analysis and archiving

Nonetheless, Shining 3D’s EinScan H is also compatible with other scanning applications such as furniture 3D scanning, capturing artwork, and much more.
