HandySCAN 700 3D Scanner Description
HandySCAN 700 is the flagship 3D scanner of the HandySCAN family. It offers accuracy up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in.) and a maximum resolution of 0.050 mm (0.0020 in.). Its top acquisition rate is 480,000 measurements/s, within a 3D scanning area of 275 x 250 mm (10.8 x 9.8 in.).
The HandySCAN 700 has a very good quality and finish, on par with everyday consumer products. According to Creaform, the HandySCAN 700 characteristics have been drastically upgraded, compared to its predecessor :
- 40% more accurate
- 25 times faster with 7 laser crosses
- 50% smaller
- 35% lighter (weights 0.85 kg)
The HandySCAN 3D scanners are based on laser 3D scanning technology. Both products are equipped with a 2M (eye-safe) laser class. The HandySCAN 300 offers 3 laser crosses, while the HandySCAN 700 is fitted with 7 laser crosses plus one “Single-beam” mode, which makes it faster and more precise. Each laser line (in fact a very fast-moving beam) is cast on the surface of the object which is 3D scanned. The surface’s topology of the object deviates the laser beam. The 3D scanner sensors (two cameras recording at 60 frames/s) register this deviation and the device is able to calculate the properties of the surface, hence the exact shape of the object. This generates a detailed mesh (a 3D file) which can then be edited, compared or exported.
