The Einscan S Desktop 3D Scanning promises to be one of the best in its category, but does it live up to its claims?
The Einscan S by Shining 3D is a Structured Light style Desktop 3D Scanning unit with an optional turntable allowing fully automated 3D Scanning. The Scanning unit was successfully kickstarted in Jan 2015 and is now available for purchase from Shining 3D or any number of resellers.
I am hugely impressed with the resolution and scan speed of the unit, which puts it ahead in my eyes of all the other units on the market in this price category. I’m looking forward to using the Einscan S for many future videos here on Maker’s Muse!
Because of the huge mesh density captured by the Einscan S, you do need a fairly powerful computer to run the system with a discrete graphics card.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
