einscanproOver the last year or so, the 3D printing industry in China has grown at a dramatic rate, with printer sales expected to surpass those of the United States in 2016. One of the oldest and most successful 3D printing companies in the country has been Shining 3D, which has been a fixture in the industry since their founding in 2004. The company manufactures several 3D printers, but they’ve become extremely well known for their EinScan line of handheld 3D scanners, which have been used globally for applications from archaeological preservation to special effects.

Last year at CES 2015, Shining 3D launched the EinScan-S, which was the newest iteration of their handheld scanners. The EinScan-S featured two scanning modes optimized for small and large objects. This week at CES 2016, Shining 3D has introduced the EinScan-Pro, which goes two steps further with four scanning modes.

The newest version still features the automatic and free scan modes that made the EinScan-S so popular. In automatic mode, a small object is placed on the scanner’s turntable, which fully scans the object within a minute and a half. Free scan mode utilizes a tripod to capture larger objects. Newly added are the handheld rapid scan and the handheld HD scan. Rapid scan operates at a speed of 10 frames per second, ideal for scanning people or statues. Handheld HD scan is more detail-oriented, optimized for scanning intricate designs and carvings. That’s the basic package, but customers can also opt for the color package, which includes a color camera to create full color, ready-to-print 3D models, or the industrial package, which is equipped with a higher-accuracy function.

With a weight of only 0.8 kg, the EinScan-Pro is highly portable, which is a major plus for scanners, which have only recently begun to lose their bulk and weight. It’s now available for pre-order from Shining 3D’s website or one of their many resellers, starting at $3,399.

einstartAlso presented at CES 2016 was the EinStart-L desktop 3D printer, which is now available for pre-order. The printer is the first to receive international UL certification in China, and offers several improvements over the EinStart-S, its previous iteration. First of all, it prints in multi-color with a single extruder, and features a larger build volume of 310 x 220 x 200 mm. It’s also fully enclosed, making it safer and quieter for office or classroom printing, with internal LED lighting. Cloud-based printing capabilities and a full-color LCD touch screen make it versatile and user-friendly. Specifications include:

  • Dimensions: 442 x 497 x 489 mm
  • Accuracy: 150-350 microns
  • Filament diameter: 1.75mm
  • Nozzle diameter: 0.4mm
  • Maximum nozzle temperature: 250° Celsius

The EinStart-L is currently available for pre-order at $1,599, with delivery expected at the end of May. If you’re at CES, you can stop by Shining 3D’s booth, #72123, for demonstrations of both the new printer and scanner.  If you have used any of these new products let us know in the Einscan EinStart-L 3D Printer forum on 3DPB.com.
