The Shining 3D EinScan-S 3D scanner is a desktop 3D scanner made by Shining 3D, a manufacturer based in China. This model is replaced in April 2017 by the EinScan-SE and EinScan-SP, two newer versions of the acclaimed EinScan line of 3D scanners.
The Shining 3D EinScan-S 3D scanner uses a structured white light technology. A white light is casted by a projector on the object at the center of the rotating plate. Degree after degree the plate turns so the object can be 3D scanned from all sides. The process takes around 5 minutes and also captures the textures (colors) of objects.
The Shining 3D EinScan-S 3D scanner has a free scan mode where the user holds himself the sensor and moves it around the object.
The recently introduced EinScan software version 2.0 is available as a free upgrade for all EinScan (EinScan-S, EinScan-Pro and EinScan-Pro+) users.
