The Sense 3D scanner can scan the volume as small as 8 inches, to as large as 118 inches. You use the 3D scanner by holding it in your hand and move it slowly around an object. The software will take the input from the 3D scanner and will start creating the image on the computer screen.
In the end I found that Handheld Capturing works a lot better because of the freedom to point the scanner at difficult-to-reach areas to complete the mesh. I can totally imagine doing this with a Surface tablet (or an iPad with iSense / Structure Sensor) for even more flexibility. Handheld Capturing also resulted in nicer scans with less artifacts in both the mesh and color information.
Geometry-wise the Sense scanner works quite well on human-sized objects, from heads to busts and probably also full body scans if you can find a subject that can stand completely still for a few minutes.
hi deargood manI have sense 1, can I have joined it with Skanect?how to join sense scanner 1 with skanect software?please help me.ID yahoo: firstname.lastname@example.org you.
I will test the SR300 with the Sense for RealSense software soon to compare the scan results, but my expectations are high because according to Intel it has a better 3D scanning range (25-70 cm vs. 25-54 cm), higher RGB camera resolution (1920 x 1080 @ 30fps & 1280 x 720 @60fps vs. 640 x 480 @30fps in the XYZ 3D scanner), and better texture quality in low-light conditions due to auto-exposure.
Hello NickCan you please tell me if I can use this scanner with an i7 26##DesktopIf so please could you send me the details pleaseI have just bought a refurbished i7 computer and this scanner with no availIf possible could you please contact me as soon as possible because I need to return them to the seller if unluckyMany many thanksRegards Dennis J Keattch
This sensor should even work on an i5 processor. It might help to install newer versions of the Intel Depth Camera Manager which includes newer drivers. You can download it here: -RealSense-Depth-Camera-Manager?product=92255
I think I have the exact same laptop and setup. The mid-2012 Retina MacBook Pro. Windows 10 actually runs pretty well. What does help is installing the latest nvida graphics card drivers. Also, make sure the Boot Camp partition is not too small. Having a few GB of free space is always good.
I have used one of the 3d systems scanner, the one that hooks into the iPad mini and it was incredibly useful. It was a game changer to be able to digitize a physical part that would have not made sense to model due to complexity.
Hey there, at this point in 2018 is it still reasonable to buy this scanner?? My use for it will be for scanning objects and people and touching up the scan models through Zbrush and other 3D Softwares. Do you recommend this scanner for that purpose?
Thanks for the useful review of these mid priced scanners. I am interested in buying a scanner for larger items up to and including people and similar complex detailed shapes, as well as small objects for engineering and design purposes. It appears the accepted method of getting precise detail is through the use of a turntable calibrated with the scanner. You mention using a turntable manually, but is it possible to integrate the Sense with a turntable under digitized control for scanning machined and other exact dimension objects in order to achieve more accurate and consistent results?I am sure the EinScan SE is precise and easy to use, but it costs over twice the amount and does not appear to do handheld scans, that being reserved for their $10,000 pro series which is unaffordable on my budget.
Have you been using the Sense 3D scanner and will you be downloading the free update from Cubify? Are there other features you hope to see included further down the line? Tell us your thoughts in the Sense 3D Scanner forum at 3DPB.com.
The Sense scanner from 3D Systems is a fantastic portable 3D scanner that produces high resolution, usable 3D scans. We used this scanner to scan the faces of some of the employees at the office and had terrific results. The scanner is fully portable so you can scan any object regardless of whether it is large or small.
The Sense has a very useful feature called automatic object recognition. This allows the scanner to only capture the object you are scanning and to ignore any background objects. Additionally the scanner uses a class 1 laser which means that this scanner is safe and will not harm people.
The scanner lost tracking at times. This could happen if one moves across the human too fast. One should avoid to lose tracking. If the tracking is lost, one should come back to wherever it was lost.
However, with the human head, I was losing tracking frequently on the back side even though I was slow so I was not able to get the entire human head. It also missed some parts in the front where the tracking was not lost. It was also not very convenient to hand hold the scanner for so long. A tripod use might have been helpful.
3D Scanning is an exciting technology to know about. But for the 3D scanners that we explored, there is scope for a lot of improvement in terms of accuracy and user friendliness. I would like to see the more expensive scanners used for reverse engineering applications to find out their performance.
Hacker and engineer Ben Heck tackles new projects each week. This week Ben takes his use of 3D printers to the next level and tries 3D scanning. He attempts to scan a variety of objects with the Cubify Sense 3D scanner to discover how to get the most out of the device and to create the best prints possible. Ben shows you how to build a rotational device for the scanner and shares what he learns about 3D scanning along the way.
(03:23) Ben and Rusty tape the scanner to the laptop to make the scanning process a little easier. Plus, they suspend an object from the ceiling to get a better scan of the bottom of the object.

We were unable to find drivers for your product. Try manually selecting your operating system. If your operating system is not listed then HP may not provide driver support for your product with that operating system.
updating all the windows drivers, the intel realsense and graphic card drivers, did get it working for a short time on the original pc. but there was no SD card. and the apps never prompted for a driver. i think it is just a bad scanner they need to replace.
Officially it is recommended that - like with the F200 - a 4th generation Core processor is used with it, though the reviewer in the above link reports that it worked fine with their 3rd generation processor. The XYZ scanner's user interface is based on a UI that is apparently overlaid over the top of the RealSense SDK, which has to be installed first before scans can be made.
Officiellement, il est recommandé que - comme avec le F200 - un processeur Core 4ème génération est utilisé avec lui, bien que l'évaluateur dans le lien ci-dessus indique qu'il fonctionnait bien avec son processeur de 3ème génération. L'interface utilisateur du scanner XYZ est basée sur une interface utilisateur qui est apparemment superposée au-dessus du SDK RealSense, qui doit être installée avant que les scans ne soient réalisés.
This week I unboxed a new 3D printer, two 3D scanners, and began work on reproducing an award using 3D printing and scanning. This post assumes a basic understanding of filament based Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing. An excellent introduction to the topic can be found at 3Dprinting.com.
After hours of frustration and fighting with the primitive interface of ReplicatorG as well as strange errors in dual extrusion I chose to research alternatives. Luckily, I found that thanks to the close relation between the Wanhao 4S and Replicator Dual it is possible to install MakerBot drivers and use Makerware Desktop, the 3D printer management software developed alongside the MakerBot family. This software has a much more polished design, and by hiding its advanced options in configuration menus it manages to be very simple to learn and use while still allowing for decent customization. The printer can be run either directly over USB or by exporting the print file to an SD card and moving it to the printer. I initially used the USB connection, but after a computer crash 3 hours into a 5 hour print job I began to use the SD card exclusively, something I would recommend for any print more than 10 minutes long.
The Cubify Sense 3D scanner is basically a handheld Xbox Kinect. Using the included Sense software one can choose an item and scan it by moving the Sense device around the object. The scanner measures the distance of multiple points on the object to build a 3D model while it measures the relative movement using onboard accelerometers, simultaneously recording color data using a traditional camera. After scanning a 3D model is automatically constructed and the software allows the user to edit and refine the model before exporting. After some experimentation I found that a distance of around two feet and low, diffuse lighting produces the best scans of objects. Even so, I was not satisfied with the quality of the scans I took of the Acorn Award, or impressed with the performance and feature set of the Sense. I am excited to use the new Fuel3D Scanify we have acquired for the Maker Hub. The Scanify is a point and shoot scanner, so there is none of the hassle of rotating around with a USB tether, and the software included can stitch together scans from multiple angles for a complete model. I think this new scanner will open up some very cool opportunities for Maker Hub workshops and interactive marketing. The portable nature of the Scanify means a student worker could take snapshots of people at a Mosely table and invite them to visit the Maker Hub to print out a personalized action figure of themselves. Just an idea. 2b1af7f3a8
