Einscan SE

The EinScan-SE is a desktop 3D scanner produced by Shining 3D. This scanner is the successor to the EinScan model. Launched in April 2017, the EinScan-SE is considered to be a cost-effective model. It is characterized in particular by its ease of use, its short scan duration, and its user-friendliness. It was designed to capture the geometry of small to medium size objects and is based on the structured light technology offering two modes: Fixed Scan and Auto Scan. 

EinScan-SE is a high-quality desktop 3D scanner that delivers highly accurate (<= 0.1mm) printable 3D models. It takes less than 8 sec for a single scan and less than 2 minutes for complete 360 degrees scan. The EinScan-SE is an upgrade in terms of performance and design from its predecessor Einscan – S. Einscan – SE has two scanning modes – (a) Free Scan Mode (b) Automatic Scan Mode. In Free Scan Mode, EinScan-SE can scan up to 700*700*700 mm and in Automatic Scan Mode, it can scan up to 200*200*200 mm.


Fast: The EinScan-SE takes around 8s for a single scan, and can complete 360° scan under 2 minutes using the automatic turntable. 

High-quality scans: this 3D scanner is capable of capturing fine details with a high resolution (0.17mm points distance) and offers an accuracy of 0.1mm. 

Optimized for 3D printing: The EinScan-SE is designed to be fully compatible with most desktop 3D printers. This 3D scanner can generate watertight meshed ready for 3D printing and offers an API to connect with any brand of 3D printers. 

Easy-to-use: The 3D scanner is easy to set up and operate. Besides, its software includes an interesting auto-alignment feature and a one-click scanning option.

Accuracy: The SP version offers a 0.05 mm accuracy while the SE has a 0.1mm accuracy only. 

Scan volume: with the EinScan-SP it is possible to capture areas up to 1200 x 1200 x 1200 mm in Fixed Scan mode, against a maximum scan volume of 700 x 700 x 700 mm with the EinScan-SE. 

Scan speed: The SP version allows to scan faster, with only 4 seconds to capture an object in Fixed Scan mode vs 8 seconds with the SE, and under 1 minute using the Auto Scan mode for a 360° scan using the automatic turntable for the SP, versus 2 minutes for the SE. 

Alignment options: The EinScan only allows manual alignment while the SP version comes with a set of markers to be positioned on the object. The SP turntable also has markers on it, thus allowing for greater precision alignments.
