Would you like to scan a human? A car? A ship? How long could it last? Thanks to Thor3D it is possible in relatively short time. This device lets to scan a car in 20 minutes (or even less!). It has has a large field of view (at least twice as large as other hand-held 3D scanners) and can scan in high resolution.

Different 3D scanning technologies rely on different ways for “tracking” during scanning. Thor3D uses a method called “geometry tracking”,  what means that the embedded software analyses the geometry of the object it “sees” in real time thereby tracking the scanner in the physical world. This tracking approach works well for “geometry-rich” objects, such as human beings, but is not generally ideal for scanning objects with very little or no unique geometry, such as car’s roof or a long, flat airplane wing.

To resolve this issue, another tracking method was added: “tracking by markers”. In this approach, sophisticated algorithms constantly monitor and look for black and white circles of a certain diameter during scanning. These markers are affixed to the object before scanning. The software tracks them as you move around your object in real-time. How to get the markers? – You can print them on your office printer or, if you want to scan metal objects, Thor3D can supply you with magnet markers. These magnets are available from Thor3D’s accessory store or from your local Thor3D distributor.
