A hand-held 3D scanner with accuracy up to 0.030 mm and resolution up to 0.050 mm. Capable of accurately scanning parts ranging from 0.2 m to 10 m in size, it can be used to scan objects to create models that are 3D printable, models that can be further manipulated in CAD programs or models that can be compared to the original 3D designs to determine how accurately the object was manufactured.
