How-To Guide for 3D Scanning

Which 3D Scanner to Use

The Innovation Space at HSHSL offers two 3D scanners.

Sense 3D scanner

  • Use the Sense 3D scanner if you need to scan an object that is larger than a football.
    The Sense 3D Scanner is handheld, and you can scan even a person with it.
  • The image quality will be lower compared to the NextEngine 3D scanner.

NextEngine 3D scanner

  • Use the NextEngine 3D scanner if you need to scan a small object that can be placed on a turntable with the diameter of approximately 10 inches.
  • You will get a 3D model image that is of higher resolution.
