David sls-3 HD Structured Light Scanner

High-precision and high-speed 3D scanning at an unbeatable price: Experience the innovative DAVID SL scanning system!

The DAVID-CAM-4-M now has improved firmware which insure greater alignment accuracy between scans. Its resolution (1920x1200) it has a really crisp image and allows scan resolutions of 0.1% of the object size (down to 40 micron)! Also we include a new megapixel camera lens from Computar - better image quality and easier to handle.

The new DAVID-SLS-3 HD scanner employs the innovative Structured Light technology, which allows precise 3D scanning in a matter of seconds. The scanner is mobile and can be placed easily in front of the surface to be scanned. A single click in the well-proven DAVID software starts the scan - and a few seconds later the digitized 3D model shows up on your screen!
This way you can subsequently scan all sides of the object, and finally combine them to a closed 360° model. The modular hardware setup allows a flexible adaptation to your object - any size from coin to couch is possible!
The results can be exported into common 3D file formats (OBJ, STL, PLY) and processed in other applications, e.g. for rapid prototyping, inspection, product presentations, archaeology and cultural heritage, works of art, computer animations, video games... The limits are set only by your imagination!

Training Tutorial Videos-

The DAVID SLS-3 HD 3D scanner mainly consists of a camera and a projector. This tutorial will run you through how to set up and install you 3D Scanner.

One of the great advantages of the David SLS-3 3D Scanner is its modular setup is that it can be adjusted for small and large objects. This 3D scanning tutorial shows you how to set up your scanned for the object size you wish to scan.

This video tutorial runs you through the process of Calibrating your DAVID SLS-3 3D Scanner to ensure the DAVID software knows your 3D scanners exact configuration. Only then can it can create precise 3D scan data.

This training tutorial will show you how to 3D scan with the DAVID SLS3 HD 3D Scanner and collect three Dimensional information as well as colour textures.
