The SILVER series is a mashup of old and new recipes, combining the HandySCAN 307/700’s excellent reputation with ongoing updates to an already highly capable software.

We reviewed the HandySCAN 700 (HS700) twice; it is identical to the HandySCAN 307 aside that it features a single laser line mode and offers a slightly higher accuracy (0.03mm versus 0.04mm).

In short, we believe that the HandySCAN SILVER Series is an excellent option with a well-rounded and professional software suite. We highly appreciate the fact that the software saves every bit of information from each scan before letting you decide (reversibly) what you keep and which mesh resolution you want.

Portable 3D scanner buying guide

Before choosing a portable 3D scanner, it’s important to take certain elements into account.

Purpose: What do you need your 3D scanner for?

Today’s handheld 3D scanners are very versatile and can be used for multiple use cases in various industries. Nevertheless, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to help make the right choice.

  • How big or small are the parts you’re going to scan? This will determine your field of view. Some 3D scanners have multiple modes or fields of view to handle small, medium, and large parts, while some are specially designed for small pieces.
  • Are you already familiar with 3D scanning? If you’re new to 3D scanning, you may want to look out for streamlined workflows. Some brands have several product generations of experience and provide more intuitive software.
  • Do you need to acquire colors? Many recent handheld 3D scanners boast texture/color capture, but this feature isn’t standard. It is quite rare on 3D scanners that focus on metrology applications, as having color maps could be superfluous when you just want to inspect a part’s shape.
  • Will you be 3D scanning every day? Perhaps you’d prefer a 3D scanner that’s easy and quick to set up and put away.

3D scanning can serve an amazing amount of purposes– determine yours before you choose a handheld 3D scanner.

Handheld 3D scanner specifications


A 3D scanner’s accuracy is its ability to obtain exact measurements. In certain industries, like quality inspection, high accuracy is of utmost importance. Entry-level handheld 3D scanners generally boast accuracies around 200 microns, while more premium products can go down to 20 microns.


Just like with photos or screens, the level of resolution will count more or less depending on the amount of detail you need. In 3D scanning, resolution is generally measured in point-to-point distance.


The speed factor is especially important when 3D scanning large objects and landscapes (where SLAM/iMMS scanners shine), or for 3D body scanning.

Large objects take a while to scan, and some 3D scanners require you to stand still for a few seconds before moving on to the next perspective. Keep in mind that you’ll be “pointing and shooting” with your handheld 3D scanner in your hand; the longer you carry it, the heavier it feels.

Nonetheless, some 3D scanners like the Go!SCAN SPARK or the EinScan HX allow you to easily pause and resume from anywhere thanks to efficient automatic scan alignment.


Last but not least, and as is the case for so many other products, budget is definitely something to take into account. There are cheap handheld 3D scanner options for under $1,000 if you’re willing to sacrifice accuracy and performance (see our “Affordable 3D scanner” selection here).

Industrial 3D scanners are the most expensive, with advanced 3D scanning technologies and prices around $100K. Unless you need a 3D scanner for 24/7 automated quality inspection or other very specific use cases, an entry or mid-level 3D scanner will suit you.


How much does a handheld 3D scanner cost?

Mid-range handheld 3D scanners tend to cost between $10,000 and $30,000. There are affordable handheld 3D scanner options under $1,000, and high-end, metrology-grade handheld scanners priced at over $50,000.

How accurate are handheld 3D scanners?

High-end handheld 3D scanners can reach an accuracy up to 0.020mm. Entry-level, affordable scanners offer a scan accuracy of around 0. 10mm.

VueScan Scanning Software Overview

29 March 2013 sitemaker

VueScan is inexpensive scanning software , which supports many (if not all) film scanners and some flatbed scanners. There are versions of this program for Windows, Mac and Linux.

The main advantage of VueScan is the ability to easily and accurately correct color on color negatives. This is a fairly complex procedure, but VueScan makes it a lot easier. VueScan allows you to take advantage of some of the special features of scanners, such as batch scanning, autofocus, infrared to eliminate dust and scratches, multi-pass scanning to reduce noise in dark areas of the slide, and others. With VueScan, you can perform multi-pass scanning even on scanners that do not support this feature. VueScan also allows you to extract the maximum color depth of a slide from a scanner, which by itself only provides a depth of 24 bits.

VueScan is a separate scanning software , which communicates directly with the scanner hardware. TWAIN interface is not provided. VueScan is often faster than the original scanner software, both in terms of scanning and focusing. If you wish, you can always return to the "native" software.

Selecting the type of negative film allows you to correct a specific orange tint, and VueScan "knows" about 200 types of film. It should be noted that this is a rather complex problem, since color shift can occur due to any inaccuracy in exposure setting or film processing. But VueScan has special tools for this task.

VueScan is easy to use, almost completely automatic, and is set by default to produce results with the best color development. If it seems too complicated for you, you may be delving too far into the jungle - just try to trust the program more and try the "default" settings. All you really need to set is the scan mode and possibly the film type. The program will do the rest for you. In this case, you can increase the preview window and the histogram to the size you need.

You may want to adjust the brightness as VueScan sometimes makes the image too bright. But still, the main thing you will work with is color balance. Although, it all depends on the content of the image.

With the white balance option, you can adjust the RGB settings and make the image look more natural. For example, when selecting the Auto Level mode (automatic level), the maximum value of the histogram is corrected, which are subsequently displayed as white. For scenes with artificial lighting or for an orange sunset, the Neutral mode may be better. Images without neutral colors (grays and whites), such as photos with green grass or flowers in the background, may not need white balance correction, but for all other shots (portraits, landscapes, still lifes), this option is very relevant. Using the Auto Black and White Points values, you can change the preset overall pixel value and preserve as much detail as possible in dark areas, conveying shadows and penumbra as naturally as possible.

The values ​​of Auto Black and White Points can be changed in the direction of increasing the contrast by moving the Black slider to the right (but not much, no more than 0.5%). However, as practice shows, it would be better to leave the default values ​​and adjust the contrast later in Photoshop. For typical scenes, a 0.5% shift often produces fantastic results. Sharply increases contrast and saturation. However, it is still not recommended to abuse it, as a loss of detail in shadowed areas may occur. which VueScan is trying to save.

VueScan is not an image editor; for editing you can use Photoshop. The main task and main advantage of VueScan is the ability to quickly and efficiently correct color balance. And this is already a lot, especially when it comes to negatives.

Benefits of 3D Scanners | What tasks does 3D scanning solve | Criteria for choosing a 3D scanner | Professional 3D scanning for fast and efficient production solutions

Modern 3D scanners have a wide range of features and a variety of functionality. They are used everywhere - in manufacturing, construction, education, the entertainment industry and are used even in everyday life. In order to choose the scanner that suits your needs, there are a number of aspects to consider, which we will discuss in this article.

Advantages of 3D Scanners

What is a 3D scanner? This is a device designed to quickly analyze a physical object and create its accurate 3D computer model. The principle of its operation is based on calculating the distance to the object using two cameras. In addition to the cameras, a backlight is used - LED or laser.

3D scanners are classified both according to their form of execution (stationary and portable) and according to the areas of use, mainly divided into professional and household.

3D scanners make it possible to significantly reduce the time and costs at the development stage, improve the quality of products and, ultimately, speed up the release of the product to the market. They can be used at any stage of product lifecycle management and will help to optimize the production process of enterprises in various industries, including:

  • automotive industry,
  • mechanical engineering,
  • aerospace industry,
  • oil and gas industry,
  • shipbuilding,
  • construction and architecture,
  • arts and culture,
  • medicine,
  • jewelry,
  • science and education.

3D scanning devices remove many of the limitations of traditional measuring equipment. Such tools familiar to the metrologist as templates, micrometers, calipers are inexpensive, but they are characterized by subjective readings and are not suitable for complex measurements. Coordinate measuring machines are more accurate than 3D scanners, but they are more expensive, larger, and require specialized operator training.

Optical inspection systems, which include 3D scanners, are the best solution in terms of price and quality, as they provide:

  • measurement speed,
  • high accuracy of digitizing objects of complex geometry,
  • can work autonomously,
  • are easy to operate.

Thanks to a 3D scanner, the work of a designer, technologist, and constructor is greatly facilitated: the performance of time-consuming complex measurements and the creation of a design from scratch are a thing of the past.

What tasks does 3D scanning solve?

  1. Quality control: the ability to check any geometric parameters, including input and output control, metrological control of parts and production equipment.
  2. Reverse engineering of products for prompt receipt of design documentation and product upgrades.
  3. Design and simulation for the purpose of prototyping and evaluation of the appearance of products, modernization of production facilities and equipment.
  4. Digital archiving of any required assortment (eg discontinued parts). Models stored in digital libraries are available remotely from anywhere in the world.

Selection criteria for 3D scanner

The main criterion is scanning accuracy . High-precision devices (10-30 microns) will help to get a phenomenal result: they are able to transfer the most complex surface geometry into 3D with minimal errors. Such 3D scanners are used in reverse engineering, quality control, medicine, and are used to digitize molds, device parts, etc. 3D scanners with an accuracy of 30–100 engineering.

ZG AtlaScan is the world's first 3D scanner with hole capture

When choosing a 3D scanner, you should also take into account resolution (detail) , i.e. the degree of discreteness that is available when digitizing an object. The highest level of detail allows you to display the smallest elements in the 3D model.

Р the size of the scanned objects and, accordingly, the mobility of the 3D scanner are directly dependent on the type of device you select. When digitizing parts and objects of small and medium parameters, hand-held scanners are usually used. Stationary scanners are suitable for capturing complex small and medium-sized products with small details. Scanning of large objects (buildings, structures, communications) is performed using ground-based laser devices (range finders).

When studying the functionality of 3D scanners, pay attention to such points as the conditions of use, scanning speed, the surface of the scanned object, and color.

Please note that the next step after scanning is to obtain and further work with the CAD model, and for this you will need specialized software.
