How important is the resolution of your 3D scanner? While the industrial world obviously also requires great accuracy and resolution, this need becomes paramount when it comes to applications related to heritage preservation. Highly visual, detail-oriented and sometimes especially vulnerable to their environment, the artifacts art historians and archaeologists have to handle greatly depend on a high resolution.
There are a lot of 3D scanners on the market, even DIY 3D scanners. And we have to admit we’re impressed by the tinkering abilities and resourcefulness of some people out there! But when it comes down to professional needs and often intricate objects, frankly, there is no contest.
What a high-quality 3D scanner can bring
What is the most important thing a 3D scanning technology can bring to a university faculty or museum? High-quality scan data. Flexibility. Simplicity. And all three are present in our Go!SCAN 3D, which can pretty much revolutionize the classroom (or museum exhibition).
Students no longer have to rely on images to study artifacts. Before, it was the only way since objects and artifacts are often fragile and need to be kept in temperature and humidity-controlled areas.
But a quick and easy task with a fast scanner can change all that. The integrity of the object is entirely preserved, since the surface doesn’t have to be altered nor even covered with positioning targets. And once scanned, the artifact can be 3D printed (in several copies if need be) and made available to students in class. When using a high-quality 3D scanner with great precision and resolution, the copies are simply amazing. Every little detail, flaw and peculiarity of the object is present and palpable, making the experience all the more real.
Of course, 3D printing is only part of what can be done with 3D scans! 3D models can be shared across all the researcher community, containing not only all the artifacts’ features, but adding every shade of every color that is present in reality! One discovery or artifact can thus go from local to global, spreading a highly dynamic from of knowledge.
Invest in the best
Put quite simply, the better the scan, the better the output –whether a 3D printed object (Follow the Link to Download a Free 3D Printer Buyer’s Guide Whitepaper) or a 3D model to share. Precision, accuracy and resolution will always win in a professional context.
Go online to see all of our 3D services, including 3D scanning, reverse engineering/3D modeling, and 3D Printing. The Go!SCAN 3D offers the best resolution and precision in the market, while also remaining an affordable 3D scanner, not to mention an amazing value for its price. Just think of all the possibilities for your own applications!
