Shining 3D, the Chinese 3D digitizing and 3D printing hardware company, has been providing machinery and services to the industrial manufacturing, bio-medical and education markets since 2004.

EinScan-S 3d scannerThe company was listed in the OTC stock market during August of last year, and that means it became China’s first OTC stock offered in the 3D digitizing and 3D printing industries.

InsertPic_80D7Headquartered in Hangzhou, Shining3D operates branch offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Chengdu and a number of other Chinese cities.

This week at CES 2015, Shining 3D launched the latest iteration of their desktop 3D scanner line, the EinScan-S, and the company says it offers high quality 3D scanning technology in an easy – and affordable – package.

The EinScan-S 3D scanner uses “structured light phase shifting technology” by projecting structured patterns of light on the target object. The company says that means faster scanning speeds (a 3 minute cycle to complete a scan of an object placed on the scanner’s turntable), lower noise and detail accuracy of less than 0.1mm.

This lastest scanner features two modes; automatic scan and free scan. The automatic scan is aimed at small objects placed on the the machine’s turntable, and a single click can create a printable 3D model automatically. The free scan mode is used for larger-sized objects, and in that mode, can scan areas up to 700 mm x 700 mm x 700mm

Shining 3D says that once a large object is scanned, the included software can merge multiple scanned data areas into a single file.

While we don’t have pricing information for this latest product in the EinScan line, the previous versions of the device, EinStart and EinScan, retail for between $ 500 and $700.

The EinScan-S captures a scan volume of 215 mm x215 mm x200mm in automatic mode, creates files in the STL and ASC formats, boasts a resolution of 1.3 megapixels and weighs just 7.7 pounds.

The cost of scanning technology for 3D printing applications is dropping rapidly, and this latest offering from Shining 3D is yet another example of the trend.
