We have a dedicated room for 3D scanning:

Software

Stucture Sensor (iPad-mounted): All the scanning software is built into the iPad you check-out with the scanner. You will email an .stl file to yourself through the app, which can be opened + edited using Mesh Mixer (free, go here to download) or other mesh editing software. Mesh Mixer is installed on all of the CAE computers in the Makerspace.

Einscan SP: The scanning software is installed on the CAE computer next to the scanner (ask our staff to help if needed). Or you can install it yourself here and use your own laptop. You email an .stl file to yourself, which can be edited using Mesh Mixer (free, go here to download) or other mesh editing software. Mesh Mixer is installed on all of the CAE computers in the Makerspace.

Creaform HandySCAN: The scanning and mesh editing software is called VX Elements, which is only available on Makerspace computers. See our staff for more info. You can also use your own software such as DesignX, etc. Talk to our staff for more info.
