3D scanning specialist SHINING 3D has launched its latest generation of multifunctional handheld 3D scanners, which includes the new EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus. The company has also released new software called ExScan Pro, as well as another software package developed in collaboration with Siemens PLM Software.

“Based on the feedback received from thousands of users and the valuable input of SHINING 3D’s own R&D team, the EinScan Pro 2X & 2X Plus deliver substantial improvements on scan speed, accuracy and function,” said Oscar Meza, VP of Global Sales at SHINING 3D. “Making a dramatic breakthrough in scanning speed and data quality, the EinScan Pro 2X series [aims] to improve the efficiency in generating high-quality 3D models.”

The EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus 3D scanners can process up to 1,500,000 points per second (30 fps) under Handheld Rapid Scan Mode, with an accuracy in Fixed Scan Mode of up to 0.04 mm. Both scanners offer versatile scan modes and align modes. Additionally, both the EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus offer plug-and-play installation and are compatible with a range of add-ons, including a Color Pack, Industrial Pack, and HD Prime Pack.

On the software side, SHINING 3D’s new ExScan Pro software offers a “faster scanning experience” and all-new UI and workflow. According to SHINING 3D, ExScan Pro makes 3D scanning “as simple as taking a video.” New features include the ability to specify resolution during data processing.

SHINING 3D’s other new software, Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition, is a design tool that brings together CAD, reverse engineering, generative design and simulation under one platform. It was developed in collaboration with Siemens PLM Software.

Meza added that the new SHINING 3D offerings “will significantly improve the efficiency and quality for designers, engineers and researchers.”
