The Scan 1 sensor is suitable for simple and quick measurements of small and medium-sized parts even in confined spaces.

GOM has introduced a compact and mobile 3D scanner that can digitally capture objects and achieve precise 3D meshes for applications such as 3D printing, reverse engineering and dimensional inspection.

The Scan 1 sensor is suitable for simple and quick measurements of small and medium-sized parts even in confined spaces, the company said. It is available with three measuring volumes: 100, 200 and 400 mm field of view.

GOM says that the scanner incorporates blue light technology which captures the complete surface of components with narrowband blue light, recorded by two cameras that work based on GOM’s stereo camera principle, and mesh editing functions which makes it easier to reproduce parts, create precise 3D models or develop new products.

These software functions can also enable users to smooth, thin and refine polygon meshes, fill holes or extract curvature lines, achieving very accurate meshes, the company said.
