The EinScan-SE 3D Scanner has the following characteristics to ensure a safe and efficient operating environment

Safety for Users                                                                                  

The EinScan-SE 3D Scanner uses visible white light, no laser, which is safe for the users eyes.

Fine Details                                                                                  

High-quality 3D data is obtained from each scan as the Einscan reconstructs real geometry of the item being scanned with extreme fine details.

Operator Friendly and Faster Scanning

One-click scanning.
Automatic calibration with no rigid set-up required.
8 seconds for a single scan.
2 minutes for a 360-degree scan under auto scan mode.

Compatible with 3D printers

The EinScan can auto mesh to create watertight 3D data.
It seamlessly connects to most 3D printers.
EinScan can provide API access service for any brand 3D printers.

Extensive post-processing functions

The software for EinScan-SE has functions of filling holes,
smoothing and sharpening. The software can also readjust the data coordinates in the post-processing process to provide more
perfect 3D data for subsequent applications.

Technical Properties

The EinScan-SE has a scan accuracy of up to 0.1 mm, and is able to determine a large range of textures and colours.  The quality of the scan is very good, and the colors are identified extremely accurately.

Using the automatic scan setting, this scanner is able to capture objects measuring up to 200 mm3. Using the fixed scan feature, you can scan larger objects up to 700 mm³. These fixed scans can be easily aligned and soothed over with the complementary EinScan software. For a steadier scan you can also mount the scanner head to a camera tripod to capture faces or non-moveable objects.

A mesh-only fixed scan can be performed in 10 seconds, and, if you want to capture color as well, the process will take around 30 seconds. The performance time of the 360° automatic scan function is fully dependent on the number of steps selected for a full rotation. The step size of a full rotation can be set from 8 to 180. The more steps chosen, the longer the scan will take, but the more detail will be captured. This ultimately adds up to about 1.25 min for 8 steps and 11.45 min for 32 steps. 


The EinScan-SE scans an object by projecting sequences of light beams from the middle of the scan head onto the object. This beam is portioned into stripes which vary in size after each scan sequence. Two cameras on each side of the scanner head take pictures of each sequence. The software calculates afterwards the distance between the light beams and projects a point cloud based on the distance between the stripes.

The color of the of the object is detected by projecting the three complementary colors onto the object. Depending on the composition of the object’s color only certain wavelengths are getting reflected and detected by the camera. We found that black is a problem for mesh and color scans, as it absorbs the light.

Shiny areas like polished metal cannot be scanned either because the light is deflected. Glass or transparent material can also not be scanned as the light just passes trough it or gets deflected.


While the EinScan-SE is certainly impressive in its own right, the software is what really makes this scanner.
The EinScan software is exceptionally stable and has an easy to use interface. It takes around 15 minutes to finish a mesh with 2.000.000 triangles (medium size object) for export.

The interface is intuitive and offers informative explanation boxes to help guide you through the scanning process. Objects can be made watertight within the software, ensuring that any missed holes or gaps will be properly filled. You can also choose between high, medium or low polygon export. Visible white light, no laser, eyes secure for children.
