NextEngine 3D Scanner

The NextEngine 3D Scanner is the most precise 3D scanner available at the FabLab. It is capable of creating an extremely high resolution scan of any object about 30"x30"x30" or smaller, and can automatically capture a full scan via the motorized turntable.

Recommended for people who need very accurate 3D models. The quality of the scan is mostly limited by the time you spend setting up the software and learning the basics of 3D scanning.  Full-definition scans can take up to 2 hours to complete.
