logoWhile an exciting variety of new startups and 3D printers are stepping up and being presented to the cutting edge technology scene this year, 2015 seems to be the year of the new 3D scanner, putting it affordably into the hands, laps–and laptops–of users greedily snapping up the innovations which allow them to do so much more right from home or even just from their smartphones, whether indoors or out.

3D Systems, ever at the forefront, and certainly never lagging behind in the daily headlines regarding new and improved technology, is announcing today that they’ll be offering a software update to the Sense Plus software for their popular Sense 3D scanner, which is the only full-color consumer 3D scanner offering the largest scan-size range.

337181 (1)These updates, free to existing users, will make life even easier in the scanning and physical photography arena for:

  • Capturing
  • Editing
  • Sharing
  • Printing real-world objects in 3D.

While affordability and ease are essential and heavily focused on right now with 3D scanning, users should also be thrilled to hear that they will now experience scan capture speed tripling what they were used to previously, at 25 frames per second. The experience will be smoother all around, with motion tracking improved substantially as well.

Users will enjoy new features in color editing as well, and can download the upgrade free from 3D Systems platform Cubify.

Sense is a comprehensive scanning solution that’s certainly attractive for the 3D design and 3D printing community at a price of $399, which is obviously putting forth enormous affordability compared to what has been available just in the past few years. As hobbyists began to see the need for affordable 3D scanners, producing their own with open-source designs, many of the main manufacturers also hopped on board with new innovations, features, and best of all – affordability.

Not only is pricing better, but suddenly consumers have extreme desktop and smartphone accessibility with 3D scanning, allowing them to 3D scan—from wherever, at whim—and then zip right over to their 3D printers and produce 3D printed models and objects, as well as sending scanned images directly to 3D printing service bureaus if they don’t have access to a printer or they have other printing equipment or material needs.
