Today, Rob shows you how to calibrate your Einscan HX blue laser scanner to ensure accurate readings and measurements when scanning objects. The process is simple and straightforward and doesn’t need to be repeated very often.
The Einscan HX combines blue led and lasers, enabling a wider array of scannable objects, most notably the scanner has little to no issues when scanning dark or highly reflective objects which are notoriously difficult for pattern based 3D scanners like the Pro HD. The HX is highly accurate as well boasting a minimum point distance 0.05 mm and accuracy up to 0.04 mm under Laser Scan. Scanning is quick and efficient with up to 1,200,000 points/s, and multiple blue laser lines under Laser Scan Mode making scanning of most objects take only minutes for reverse engineering, CAD/CAM, 3D printing, etc. The design is compact and ergonomic, making it easily transportable with the included hard shell protection case. On top of all this the HX comes with a built-in color camera which means it supports full color texture capturing and tracking by texture.
Metrology and reverse engineering are made easy with 3D scanners with use cases across the board. These scanners are highly accurate and easy to use, making them perfect for anyone wanting to verify dimensional accuracy in certain cases or to easily reverse engineer and recreate objects when a 3D model simply isn't available. For example, in a past news episode we covered Chris Forsberg using 3D scanner based reverse engineering to create a custom widebody kit for his Formula Drift Nissan “Altimaniac”. Check out our other 3D scanning videos where we've scanned vintage skateboards, tried out the iPhone 12 Pro Max's LiDAR scanning features and the unboxing of its siblings the Einscan Pro HD, Pro 2X Plus and the H and HX handheld 3D scanners.
