How our scanners work

3D laser scanners operate by projecting a crosshair laser beam on the scanned object. Upon impacting the object, the laser beam is deformed by the surface’s shape. These deformations are recorded with a pair of high-speed, high-precision image sensors, and the 3D model of the scanned object is calculated automatically using a triangulation. There are three crosshair laser beams for PreciSCAN H330 models and seven for PreciSCAN H771. Scanning speed, resolution and accuracy are all improved with the increased number of crosshair beams.

Himalaya handheld 3D scanners provide extreme portability and fast scanning speeds. They work with a portable computer. While some other devices may struggle with scanning high-gloss objects, our Himalaya handheld scanners deliver exceptional results even for these difficult surfaces.

Special markers are used to tell the scanner where and how is the scanned object placed in space. These markers should be placed close to the scanned part, or – whenever possible – right on the part itself. This method of initial alignment is well proven and still unrivalled in the cost-benefit terms. 4000 self-adhesive markers are included in the package.
