There are many different 3D scanners, and they are improving in technology as well. In this review, we have taken a look at a very unique and interesting item, that we think will be of great convenience. Of course, this is not only a 3D scanner, but also an excellent portable removable device for the iPad, the Structure Sensor iOS Compatible Night Vision Function Portable 3D Scanner.
The device allows you to capture the environment, obtain information about the distance between objects and build 3D models based on the information received. Scanning occurs through the joint operation of infrared lasers, light sensors and cameras. Plus, there is support for night vision.
The special design of the bracket for iPad Mini 2 allows you to hold the scanner firmly and do not interfere with standard operation on the tablet. Compatibility of connection occurs only with IOS operating system. The output is a VGA (640 x 480) / QVGA (320 x 240) image.
The scanning speed of surrounding objects is from 30 to 60 frames per second. The scanning angles are horizontal 58 degrees and vertical 45 degrees.
With the Structure Sensor 3D Scanner, you can scan both small objects and the entire room in which you are located. The recording is carried out in color with superposition of high resolution textures. Lithium-ion battery 1.5A 7.5V with a capacity of 3000mAh is installed to provide with up to four hours of usage. Scanning is possible at a distance of 40 to 350 cm. The product dimensions are 11.90 x 2.75 x 2.05 cm with weight of 250 grams. In the bundle, we get 1 x Structure Sensor 3D Scanner, 1 x Data Cable for Apple, 1 x AC Battery Charger, 1 x Screwdriver, 8 x M1.6 Screw, and 1 x English Manual.
Structure Sensor 3D Scanner is made out of excellent material, and the body itself is brought out of a single piece of high-quality aluminum. This offers strength, durability and wear resistance of the scanner. Perfect, compact and ergonomic portable design makes it easy to use with the functions of a modern scanner. A clear application interface, an excellent battery with a long working life, high quality and precise models – all this is designed to make the 3D scanning reach a new level and be more convenient, practical and affordable.
