Scan Dimension releases Mac Version of its SOL 3D Scanner

Scan Dimension’s new Mac SOL 3D Scanner.

Scan Dimension (Chantilly, Virginia), developer of 3D scanning, imaging and realization technology, has unveiled the macOS version of its 3D desktop scanner, SOL. Scan Dimension’s SOL is the 3D market’s “most user-friendly 3D scanner, ideal for the engineer, maker, designer or hobbyist. Now, customers can use SOL with macOS Mojave,” said the OEM. “The feedback on SOL has been fantastic. Designers, engineers, and other macOS users can now experience SOL’s capabilities,” said Chip Coons, Product Manager at Scan Dimension. “Our goal is to provide our customers with an easy-to-use 3D scanner with professional accuracy, yet without a premium price — and SOL for Mac and PC delivers just that.”

SOL has 0.1mm scan accuracy “outperforming the more expensive scanners in the marketplace.” The technology eliminates three important obstacles to 3D scanning – complex calibration, time-consuming software manipulation, and manual mesh alignment. The portable 3D scanner creates 3D renditions of objects of up to 6.69 inches. Users can save files in standard formats such as OBJ, PLY, STL, DAE and XYZ. The SOL package includes the hardware, software, tent, cover, cables, cleaning cloth, plus a sample object to scan.
