How It Works

The Lantos 3D Ear Scanning System uses patented technology to map the unique geometry of the ear. The Lantos membrane, which protects the camera and the patient’s ear canal, is placed into the ear where it gently inflates and conforms to the curves of the ear. This controlled environment inside of the membrane, free of wax and debris, facilitates the accurate capture of over one million data points. The single-use membrane ensures maximum safety and hygiene while delivering a deep, precise ear scan that can be used to make any custom-fit earpiece product.

Modern hearing aids are able to compensate for any hearing loss and meet the needs of the most demanding users. But there is one caveat - all devices have a standard shape and do not take into account the individual features of the structure of the ear canal, which will house the body of the hearing aid or its sound guide (liner). The sound pressure on the eardrum and its frequency response will directly depend on the quality of the individual otoplasty. Even the best hearing aid will not do the job if it is not properly positioned in the ear canal.

The standard manual technology for the manufacture of otoplasty products (inserts, shells, earplugs) in the modern world has long given way to digital 3D printing.

Our company has been using digital printing since 2018 and already has enough experience in this field. We are constantly improving our technology for the manufacture of individual otoplasty and can provide high quality to our customers.

  1. Impression taking . The impression procedure is performed by a hearing care professional. An otoblock is installed in the ear canal, which prevents contact of the impression mass with the eardrum. Then a two-component silicone mass is introduced into the canal, which hardens after mixing for 5-10 minutes. The mass fills the cavity of the canal and the entire auricle to create a complete imprint of the outer ear.

  1. Impression scan . A special optical scanner creates a 3D impression model for further processing. We use a high-precision scanner that allows you to simultaneously scan both impressions of one patient.

  1. Create 3D model . Special software allows you to process the scanned model of the ear impression and give it the desired shape. Thanks to the digital method of calculating the acoustic characteristics and the position of the components of the hearing aids, the most optimal cosmetic effect is achieved for in-canal and deep-canal hearing aids.

  1. 3D printing . Finished 3D models of future otoplasty products are sent to a 3D printer for printing. The printer's laser beam cures the biocompatible photopolymer resin in layers. Depending on the technical characteristics of the product, the layer thickness can be from 25 microns (40 layers in 1 millimeter!). Printing time directly depends on the resolution of the product and averages 1.5-2 hours.

  1. Workpiece wash . The printed blank is sent to an ultrasonic cleaner to remove residual liquid resin.

  1. Preform Curing .After washing, the preform must be placed in a photopolymerizer to eliminate the “stickiness” of the outer layer that has been in contact with oxygen and give the material final hardness.

  1. Finishing . At this stage, the final processing of otoplasty products made of hard materials is carried out - grinding, polishing, varnishing. To make silicone products, a printed hollow mold is filled with silicone, then demolded, sanded and varnished.

  1. Mounting . In-the-ear or behind-the-ear receivers are mounted in a printed housing. In individual liners, a sound-conducting tube is installed, in earplugs - acoustic filters. The finished product is sent to the customer.

Rules for 3D human scanning

For the greatest similarity of the resulting 3D copy with the original object and the successful implementation of the process of digitizing a human figure, several important rules must be observed.

By adhering to these recommendations, you can always achieve the highest quality and realistic results. Order a peel 3d scanner from iQB Technologies and you will be able to make a high-precision 3D model of yourself or any other person, and then print it using 3D printing.

All scanner models are in stock in our warehouse.

  1. Scan each body part once, especially when scanning a human face. If you scan the face several times in a row, the program will recreate the model as something in between all the received 3D scans. As a result, you will get an option that is completely different from the original face of the person being scanned.
  2. In the process of work, the person being scanned must absolutely not move - otherwise any movement, whether it be tilting, turning the head or stepping from foot to foot, can lead to image deformation. It is advisable to freeze in one position for a while and remain motionless until the very end of the procedure.
  3. If you want to create a figurine using 3D scanning, then you do not need to use additional light. To get a high-quality 3D figurine, LED flashes are enough.
  4. When using a turntable, its speed must be made as slow as possible. Thus, a 3D scan of a person will be much more accurate, and difficult places such as palms or ears will be much easier to scan.

The process of scanning a person with a 3D scanner

If you need to scan a person, you can order a scan of any part of the body from us at a bargain price.

The process of 3D scanning and modeling in software generally takes from 10 minutes to several hours.

The obtained data of 3D scanning of the human body is processed in specialized software: errors are corrected, problem areas are eliminated. The finished 3D model with an accurate texture and a clear rendering of the smallest details, if necessary, is sent for 3D printing. At the same time, a high-precision copy of a person can be obtained on a 3D printer, which in the future can become a memorable gift or souvenir. It is possible to scan with the transfer of the color of the object.

Also, the finished model can be used to create individual products that are ideally suited to the human figure.

It should be mentioned that 3D human scanning is completely safe, painless and does not harm the human body.

Scanner options

3D scanners for scanning a person are divided into:

  1. Optical:

    Optical 3D scanning technology uses a lamp flash designed to take measurements with the highest accuracy. Projection distortions of the object are recorded by the scanner's video cameras, thereby allowing to determine the shape and dimensions of the scanned object, and then transferred to a specialized PC program for further processing.

    Optical 3D scanners are fast, allowing you to scan people even in motion and in full growth.

    Scanning a person with a 3D scanner using this technology takes from two minutes when using a special cell and up to 20 minutes when using a handheld scanner.

    Most optical handheld devices are capable of color scanning and texture reproduction of the original model and various details, including jewelry and clothing.

  2. Laser:

    Traditional laser scanners, as a rule, are developed for the tasks of metrological measurements, and therefore require special reflective marks to be fixed on or near the object, the position of which is read by the device for precise positioning.
