Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this product and how you can use it.


The History of Shining 3D

Before we look at the EinScan HX product, let's take a brief look at Shining 3D as a company. 

Since its founding in 2004, Shining 3D has been creating and selling 3D products. It has a range of different 3D software and 3d scanners on offer. The company currently owns patents of over 300 products and more than 100 copyrights. 

Shining 3D's products are currently involved in many different industries, from healthcare to industrial manufacturing. 

The company was also involved with the recreation of prosthetic bones.


What Makes The EinScan HX Special?

As you can see, Shining 3D is a leader in the 3D market and their EinScan HX product is an example of this leadership.

The EinScan HX is a hybrid system. This means it combines two technologies to create its 3D laser scanner. It blends LED scan technology with blue laser light. 

The EinScan HX captures a range of surfaces and materials through ambient light. By doing this, it can create a much better picture than previous models were able to. 

It also has the fantastic perk of being a handheld 3D scanner. Being handheld allows the user to scan from anywhere they wish. It's portable and small so that you can get to those hard-to-reach places.

How Can It Be Used?

As mentioned above, the company supplies technology to many business areas. The EinScan HX can also be helpful in those industries, as well as many more. 

The Automotive industry can use this 3D scanner to scan the insides of the cars they are building. Scanning the interior of a vehicle lets potential buyers check more aspects of it before even seeing it.

Shipbuilders can scan ships without worrying about materials being too reflective to scan. By using blue laser light, You can scan reflective surfaces without fear of reflections.


The EinScan 3D scanner has a rapid scan function. This function can scan up to 1.2 million points each second.

This ability allows the scanner to capture images of large objects with ease. It has an incredibly low minimum point distance as small as 0.05mm with 0.4mm accuracy. 

With such precision, you can complete reverse engineering tasks with speed and accuracy. 


The Advantages of the EinScan HX

As you know, this 3D scanner uses the rapid scanner mode to scan objects of all sizes. This mode also uses a built-in camera that can capture full-color data from that object. The final result will be a far more detailed and crisp image than previous models. 

I've mentioned that the scanner captures data from reflective surfaces with ease. But, it also allows you to receive data from surfaces with dark colors as well. 

You can do this because the EinScan has the aforementioned blue laser light. By changing from a white to blue light, the scanner can pick up more information about what it scans.

Let's take a step away from the technical side of this product. Due to it being a handheld 3D scanner, the weight is a considerable aspect. It weighs just over 700 grams. 

Being so light is perfect for holding it at awkward angles to scan those hard-to-reach objects. 

Post-Production Positives

This product doesn't just help you with scanning. It also has post-production functions.

The EinScan 3D scanner can help you by simplifying its data after the scan is complete. 

What else should you know? It also can:

  • Fill holes that it scans
  • Smooth or sharpen the image depending on what it is you are capturing
  • Help you with measurements of the object
  • Take into consideration movement that occurs during the scanning and then attempt to fix the problem for you

There are many reasons why this scanner is useful for a variety of applications, especially since it has so many features and functions.


What Do You Need to Use the Scanner?

Shining3D recommends running software in following system configuration:

  • Windows 7 (64bit) or Windows 8 (64bit) or Windows 10 (64bit)
  • 16 GB RAM (Minimum 8GB RAM or more)
