Flexible Design, Maximum Value

Customize the HDI Advance 3D scanner exactly the way you want

3D Scanning
3d scanner for sale uk

The HDI Advance 3D scanner uses fringe-projection technology to convert the objects into a digital 3D model in high-resolution without any physical contact.

CAD Re-design

Do you need to redesign the scan data in order to generate a CAD model? You can easily import the scan data within your own CAD or using a specialized software such as Geomagic

3D printing

Capturing data

capturing 3d data

Structured light 3D scanner projects a series of patterns directly onto the object surface. Based on the deformation of those patterns, it can construct a 3D scan in minutes

Creating the 3D model

capturing 3d data

To join multiple scans together the 3D scanning software offers several alignments aids. Automatic alignments (ideal to 3D scan freeform shapes) and photogrammetric dots (specific to digitize prismatic parts)

Cleanup & exporting

exporting 3d scan data

Once all the data is aligned, it may require hole filling. Data will also require some editing, and refinement depending on target usage. The data can be saved as Stl, Obj

While other 3D scanning systems can be restrictive in its ability to only scan similar sized objects, the HDI Advance 3D scanning systems are different. The HDI Advance scans objects of different shapes and sizes simply by changing the scanner’s observable area. They offer the flexibility for scanning a wide range of components, objects, and people into full digital 3D models. You can make the field of view smaller or bigger simply by placing the cameras in different preset slots on the scanner’s mount, or by switching to different cameras/lenses for scanning extremely small objects (i.e. coin) or large parts (i.e. car).
