3D Scan for 3D Printing

Perfect 3D Scans for Figurines from the 3D Printer

Creating ready-to-print 3D scans of customers who want 3D figurines of themselves (sometimes called “3D mini-mes” or “3D selfies”) is often a time-consuming exercise for the owners of 3D scan stores. The scanner technology used is oftentimes slow and in need of extensive, lengthy post-processing before 3D printing is possible.

The entire process, which can take hours, can be dramatically sped up with VITRONIC’s professional 3D body scanner VITUS BODYSCAN.

Perfect 3D Scans for Figurines from the 3D Printer

Scanning in Real Time without 3D Rendering

The VITUS BODYSCAN 3D body scanner is based on the laser triangulation technology. It scans a complete person or group fully automatically and creates a 3-dimensional colored image. This process takes – depending on the resolution – between 6 and 10 seconds, making the VITUS BODYSCAN significantly faster than a handheld 3D scanner.

The light-section method used enables customers and shop owners to view the results of a 3D scan directly on the screen. Similar to a photo studio, it can be quickly decided whether another scan should be made. If the results are satisfactory, the scan can be computed to a watertight mesh at the touch of a button.

Within minutes, the 3D scan is now ready to print. It is available as a WRL or OBJ file can be polished by manual post-processing. Nothing stands in the way of a speedy 3D print of a figurine now.
