FAQ

3D Scanner

How accurate is POP?

A: The POP adopts a dual-camera + unique microstructured light technology which can output up to 0.3mm accuracy. As a result, the POP 3d scanner is accurate and good enough to produce 3D models ready for most 3D printers in the market.

Does it produce color 3D model?

A: Yes, POP has a texture model.

Can the scanned model be 3D printed directly?

A: Yes, the scanned model is accurate enough for most 3D printers. The output file formats include STL, ply, obj. The most 3D printer has software to input those files and produce printable data.

What is the output file?

A: Stl, ply(with color), and obj.

Software

Is the software free?

A: Yes! The scanning software Handyscan and the post-editing software 3Dmodel Process are free.

Is it compatible with MAC and IOS?

A: Yes.

How long does POP take to scan an object?

A: We have three modes:

The first mode is Feature Scan and is for everyone; it takes only around 1-minute to scan a simple object. But, of course, a turntable would help you speed up and make scanning much more effortless.

The second, Marker Scan, is for skilled users to scan large and non-feature objects. Before the scan, you have to stick markers to the object randomly. The bigger the object, the longer it takes.

The third, Person Scan, is made to scan people with proper exposure and gain settings. It usually takes 5-10 minutes to scan a person.

What`s the computer configuration for use the software? GPU?

CPU:I5 or above

RAM:8G or above

Operating System:Windows 8/10

Screen resolution:1280*720

The integrated display card is fine; no independent display card is needed. Furthermore, thanks to POP’s strong computing power, it does not require very high-performance CPU/GPU from the connected computer or phone.

Where can I see more 3D models scanned by POP?

A: We’ve updated 3D models on https://sketchfab.com/Revopoint3d. Or Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/revopoint/designs
