Revopoint POP review
For objects that perfectly fit the POP’s capabilities– like the small, white, matte statuette that was included– the results can rival more expensive entry-level scanners.
Regarding Revopoint’s promises, which are portability, speed, and ease of use, the 3D scanner itself holds all three. On the software side, however, Revopoint still has a long way to go before 3D scanning newcomers can fully adopt the technology.
- Good price-performance ratio on simple objects
- Versatile format: 2-in-1 desktop and handheld scanner
- Highly sensitive: the scanner often loses track of the object
- Limited software functionalities and UX, with frequent freezing problems
- Requires a Wi-Fi hotspot for smartphone scanning
Revopoint POP overview
The Revopoint POP is an affordable 3D scanner for beginners and hobbyists, available at around $600. Revopoint, a manufacturer based in Shenzhen, raised over $2M on Kickstarter to launch the POP.
POP 3D scanner main features
- 2-in-1 format: The POP’s included scanner holder can be used as a tripod for a stationary, desktop 3D scanning configuration. When folded, the holder enables users to carry the POP around like a handheld 3D scanner.
- Infrared structured light: The scanner uses structured light technology, casting a light pattern onto objects and capturing the pattern’s deformation to determine and generate the object’s surface in 3D. The POP’s light source is infrared, meaning it is possible to perform a face 3D scan while the subject can keep their eyes open.
- Texture and colors: Thanks to its RGB sensor, the POP 3D scanner is able to capture colors and generate color 3D models.
- Simple setup: Only one USB cable is required to use the scanner.
- Printable scans: Scans from the POP can be 3D printed.
