Shining 3D Introduces New Software and New 3D Scanning Possibilities with EinScan Pro 2X and EinScan Pro 2X Plus

At formnext last week, Shining 3D was among the companies unveiling new products to the world. The EinScan-Pro has been one of Shining 3D’s most popular products ever since it was introduced nearly three years ago, and it was followed up last year by the EinScan-Pro+. Now the company is extending its line of handheld 3D scanners further with the EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus.

“Based on the feedback received from thousands of users and the valuable input of SHINING 3D’s own R&D team, the EinScan Pro 2X & 2X Plus deliver substantial improvements on scan speed, accuracy and function,” said Oscar Meza, VP of Global Sales at SHINING 3D. “Making a dramatic breakthrough in scanning speed and data quality, the EinScan Pro 2X series is aimed to improve the efficiency in generating high-quality 3D models.”

3D scanners have come a long way from the large, unwieldy contraptions they used to be, and Shining 3D has been one of the companies at the forefront of truly portable scanners. The EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus are especially lightweight and compact, making for easy travel as well as plug-and-play installation. The two new scanners also offer faster scanning than their already speedy predecessors, processing up to 1,500,000 points per second (30 fps) under Handheld Rapid Scan Mode. They also boast high accuracy – single scan accuracy in Fixed Scan Mode is up to 0.04 mm. When using markers, the volumetric accuracy under handheld scanning modes is up to 0.05+0.3 mm/m.

The EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus are capable of capturing fine details. Under Handheld Rapid Scan and Handheld HD Scan modes, the minimum point distance is up to 0.02 mm, allowing for high-resolution data. Both scanners have multiple modes of operation, including Handheld Rapid Scan, Handheld HD Scan, Fixed Scan with turntable and Fixed Scan without turntable. They offer several alignment modes as well, including feature alignment, markers alignment, turntable coded targets alignment and manual alignment.

In addition, the EinScan Pro 2X and 2X Plus offer several optional add-ons, like the Color Pack, Industrial Pack and HD Prime Pack for multiple scanning applications.

The new 3D scanners were not the only products Shining 3D introduced last week; the company also has new software to offer. The EXScan Pro software features a brand new user interface and work flow that is easy to use regardless of experience level – it’s as easy as taking a video, according to Shining 3D. A new operation mode allows for a faster scanning experience during operation; users can then set the resolution option later during data processing. The software is compatible with several file types including STL, OBJ, PLY, ASC, P3 and 3MF.

Also now available is Solid Edge Shining 3D Edition software, the product of a collaboration between Siemens PLM Software and Shining 3D. It includes reverse engineering, generative design and simulation along with CAD tools in a single platform.

“The integration of Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition, EinScan 3D scanners and 3D printer enables users a complete solution covering 3D digitize – design & simulate –additive manufacturing,” said Meza. “It will significantly improve the efficiency and quality for designers, engineers and researchers.”
