EinStar, the most accessible 3D scanner from SHINING 3D and its use in the Metaverse

SHINING 3D is known for technologies ranging from 3D scanning to additive manufacturing, metrology and digital dentistry. Just a few days ago, it unveiled a new scanning solution that it hopes will transform the sector in 3D. The EinStar is the company’s most affordable portable 3D scanner, designed with the goal of making 3D scanning technology available to everyone. This new scanner highlights SHINING 3D’s goal of continuing to develop solutions for a thriving market. In fact, according to Allied Market Research report, the global 3D scanning market is expected to reach $16.66 billion by 2030, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.3%. This figure highlights the potential of the market and the possibilities it offers to both businesses and end users.

In April of this year, SHINING 3D introduced a new scanner, FreeScan UE Pro, which they considered the most multifunctional portable solution developed to date. Now, with this new achievement, the company continues its mission to be one of the leading manufacturers of 3D technologies, not only on an industrial scale, but also for entry-level users looking for affordable 3D scanners. Rebecca Koe, Product Manager, Professional Digitization, explains, Our mission at SHINING 3D is to make high-quality 3D digitization technology accessible to everyone, helping organizations and individuals enter the digital world. EinStar was developed, allowing everyone to digitize the world around them like never before.” This is certainly great news for the 3D scanning market, but what are the characteristics of this new solution? And what can we expect from the new EinStar 3D scanner?

EinStar 3D Scanner Features

EinStar is a low cost solution capable of delivering high quality results. It is equipped with three VCSEL infrared optical projectors (for clear and stable scanning even outdoors), two stereo depth cameras and an RGB camera that reproduces the true colors of the scanned object. These elements allow users to capture clear and stable scanning details by generating high-quality data with chromatic texture. In terms of scanning quality, EinStar can capture high-density data in the form of a point cloud with a point spacing of up to 0.1 mm. Compatible with EXStar software, the scanner integrates optimization technology that optimizes point cloud for complete data, routing scanning smoothly and improving data quality.

Due to the different output formats it offers, it is ideal for a wide range of projects, industries, and applications. It can be used for additive manufacturing, digital file design, virtual and augmented reality, as well as in the fields of education, culture and art. In terms of user experience, EinStar meets all expectations. It has an ergonomic design and a clear and streamlined workflow, not only for scanning, but also for post-processing of data. In addition, with no optical projection required during the scanning process, the EinStar is comfortable and safe for the eyes when scanning the human body. With its accessibility and ease of use, EinStar is the perfect “plug and play” tool for entering the world of 3D scanning for the first time, and even experiencing 3D modeling in a simple and effective way. The versatility of this new 3D scanner allows you to take your ideas and creativity to the next level.

3D scanning in Metaverse

To test the capabilities of the 3D scanner, artist Will Huff decided to implement it in his project to explore the Metaverse. This concept refers to an immersive digital world where space is not physical, but a hyperrealistic 3D representation seen through virtual reality. Hof’s goal in bringing the two ideas together was to have a copy of it in this virtual space, so EinStar was the most appropriate choice. To do this, Will Huff began the process of 3D scanning and its subsequent analysis of the scanned model in Unreal Engine. Later, he customized the Metaverse model into Metahuman. The main goal was to have a 3D scanned model containing the real data of the scanned person and then the ability to customize it and turn it into a Metaverse avatar.

Hof adds,EinStar is a great addition to SHINING with this complete line of 3D scanners. It is a full-featured, versatile scanner based on 18 years of research and development in high-resolution 3D digital products. EXStar is equally impressive, capable of handling large batches of point clouds. There are many use cases for AI and star in the metaverse. But did you know? I’ll leave that up to you to find out.” If you want to take a closer look at the features of this new 3D scanner and how to use it, you can visit the SHINING 3D website over here Or follow them on social media (@einstar3d).
