Shining 3D EinScan-Pro review
It is certainly one of the most promising handheld 3D scanners of 2016. It offers an amazing level of performance at a very reasonable price, as it’s roughly three to four times cheaper than its closest competitors. The software is efficient and easy to use. For small to medium size companies looking to invest in a 3D scanning solution, we think it’s a very interesting option to consider.
The best use cases for this portable 3D scanner are museum conservationism or design studios. We do not recommend it for full-body 3D scanning, even if it gives good results for face 3D scanning.
