XYZ Scanner 2.0 – An Overview!
Designing a 3D model of a real-world object from scratch can seem like a daunting task. Thankfully, the world of 3D printing does offer a creative solution called the 3D scanner.
3DScanning – Is a simple process of capturing and mapping a real-world object using computer-aided photography to generate an identical model that is available for printing.
XYZ, a Taiwan based company makes some of the best handheld scanners in the 3D printing industry. The XYZ Scanner 2.0 is a compact and lightweight tool that helps users scan the minute details within an object. All the more, this device can serve a pivotal role in reverse engineering, body scanning and rapid prototyping.
The XYZ Scanner 2.0 employs the sophisticated Intel® RealSense™ technology to generate a raw 3D model from an object within minutes. It can easily map both large and small objects though its extended operating range of 25-60 cm & a scanning distance of 20-120 cm. The colour camera can produce scans at a resolution of 1920x1080p at 40fps (frames per second), while detailed depth images can be recorded at a size of 640x480 at 30fps. It also provides deep scans with a max resolution of 0.2-1.5 mm for object dimension up to 100x100x200cm (WxDxH).
The scanner is compatible with various software’s, as detailed scans can be exported in multiple file formats such as .stl, .obj, .ply, .fbx, among others. The company uses proprietary software called XYZScan to facilitate easy scanning. This software serves as a handy tool to quickly edit the model as per your needs.
XYZ scanner drastically cuts down the cost associated in replicating a printable object. It renders an exceptional 3D scanning experience though its detailed scans that facilitate economical 3D printing. Its versatile outlook and high-res scans make it a perfect companion for professions working on all fronts.
