Taiwan-based company SKY-TECH has launched their handheld 3D scanner called 3D Hermes.
Based on Intel’s RealSense, it is an affordable alternative to create 3D-Modells for 3D printing. The device can scan objects in full colour from the size of 200 x 100 mm up to 3 x 3 m, with an accuracy of up to 1 mm. It can either be positioned on a tripod or used as a handheld device.
The software automatically edits and prepares the scan for 3D printing.
“3D Herems users can now focus on what you want to scan, but forget about complicated 3D post-editing. 3D Hermes is ideal for 3D FDM printer application since it is cost effective and no barrier for learning of 3D technology,” states SKY-TECH.
