Semiconductor etailer and distributor RS Components has added the CES award-winning Scanify handheld scanner from Fuel3D to its range of affordable desktop systems for 3D digitisation and printing. Scanify uses a combination of stereoscopy and photometry to create an accurate, high-resolution digital model including 8-bit RGB colour data. Setting a new benchmark for affordability among high-performing handheld 3D scanners, Scanify is fast, versatile and easy to use. The user places an optical tracking target on the object, as a reference for movement correction, and a one-click shot (0.1 seconds) then captures all the images needed to create the model. The scanner exports various file formats including STL, as used by many 3D printers, thereby allowing scanned objects to be replicated quickly and easily. In addition, support for OBJ and PLY formats allows direct export to popular design or animation software environments, hence making numerous creative avenues accessible for users such as designers, artists, educators, makers and hobbyists. RS is among the first distributors to offer Scanify to the market through its offices in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, following its launch at CES 2015 in January. Scanify joins the rapidly growing portfolio of 3D scanners, printers and printing materials from various manufacturers such as 3D Systems, BeeVeryCreative, MakerBot, RepRapPro, Ultimaker, and the own-brand IdeaWerk FDM printer, now available from RS.
