RangeVision, a manufacturer of 3D scanners, has developed a new low-cost 3D scanner.

Spectrum, which is based on structured light technology, is intended to be the most affordable professional 3D scanner on the market for a variety of applications at a price under US$5,000, the company claims.

The RangeVision Spectrum package includes a scanner unit, a tripod, an automatic turntable, a case for easy transportation and storage, and unlimited software license with free updates.

Due to adjustable fields of view, it is possible to digitize objects from 1 cm to 3 m with accuracy up to 0,04 mm and 3D resolution up to 0,072 mm.

The 3D scanner has three modes for object digitization:

  • Scanning with markers: a fast and an accurate way to merge multiple scans in an automatic mode in a professional way
  • Scanning with an automatic turntable: a quick and an easy way of scanning small and medium-sized objects in an automatic mode
  • Free scan: the user can easily render complex geometry and large items with the latest automatic algorithm of meshes registration by geometry of the object. The manual modes are also available for professional users to have full control over creating of 3D models.
