Now why would you want to 3d scan a circuit board? When it comes to creating custom enclosures, mounting points, etc. having a 3D scan of a circuit board can greatly improve the process of reverse engineering to design housings, ensuring I/O ports lineup, etc. Like with much of 3D scanning, the ability to reverse engineer basically any object with high accuracy in a fraction of the time saves you hundreds of hours. You can learn more about the Einscan line of 3D scanners here on our channel and if you want more information, visit our website. 

Should you buy the Einscan HX or the Pro HD? Here's a comparison -- buy them here:

The HX is a highly capable laser scanner, about $2000 more than the Pro HD -- but the Pro HD has an automated turntable. What's the trade-off? The HX can scan dark objects, without any modification -- whereas the Pro HD generally needs a disappearing scanning spray.
