Handheld 3D Scanners

Need a mobile, handheld 3D scanner? Not sure which one to rent?

Let the professionals at HTS Advanced Solutions advise you which 3D laser scanner will work best for you; our rental pool includes the following scanners: Artec Eva, Artec Spider, DotProduct DPI & FARO Freestyle.

These handheld laser scanners are 100% portable and can easily be held with one hand. They capture video, (each frame being a three-dimensional image) from objects as small as a mouse to a vehicle. The operator simply has to walk around the object while holding the scanner. Because these handheld scanners can be orientated at different angles they are ideal for getting into tight spaces. And the software is incorporated within the unit so a laptop or computer is not needed, making these units extremely user-friendly and very easy to operate.

Call to discuss the details of your assignment so we can advise you which 3D scanner is best suited for your project.

The Artec Leo is the first 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing and able to provide the most intuitive workflow, making 3D scanning as easy as taking a video.

As you scan your object, see the 3D replica being built in real time on Leo’s touch panel screen. Rotate the 3D model, check if you have captured all areas, and fill in any parts you may have missed. The Artec Leo has a working distance from 0.35m – 1.2m (where as the EVA was 0.4m-1m and the Space Spider 0.2m-0.3m), so effectively combines the scanning area of the EVA and Spider. As with all Artec 3D scanners, the applications are wide and far-reaching, including industrial manufacture and quality control, healthcare, forensics, VR and e-commerce. Furthermore, Artec Leo’s new wireless functionality and internal processor allow for a wealth of integration possibilities, making it even easier to streamline your application, regardless of the industry.

Key Features:

  • Built-in touch panel screen and simple interface
  • Built-in 9 DoF inertial system
  • Enhanced color capture
  • Unparalleled texture to geometry mapping
  • No need for targets
  • Built-in SSD drive
  • Capture even small details
  • 3D HDR
  • A wealth of integration possibilities
  • Large, professional grade lens system
