Shining 3D Einstar review
The Einstar is a powerful and truly easy-to-use device. We were overall very impressed with the scanner throughout our hands-on testing sessions. Its intuitive software includes a range of professional-grade features that make for an enjoyable experience for both beginners and more advanced users.
On the downside, the Einstar lost track during a handful of our tests and we experienced some “device reconnecting” issues which were quickly resolved.
In short, the Einstar is a solid, cost-efficient handheld 3D scanner and its aggressive pricing makes it a compelling choice in the competitive entry-level 3D capture landscape.
- Affordable (under $1k)
- Quick to capture surfaces
