This year’s 2017 TCT Show located Birmingham, UK promises to bring out the best and the brightest in Printing, Additive Manufacturing, and Product Development. Whether it’s visionary manufacturers, disruptive designers, early adopters, or motivated investors, the goal is universally the same: to accelerate 3D technologies.


Democratizing 3D Scanning Technology

RangeVision 3D Scanners, a world renown developer of structured light 3D scanners, has chosen the 2017 TCT Show to unveil its latest state-of-the-art technology. Judging from the initial buzz from the RangeVision and industry experts, the company’s newest models are poised to democratize 3D technology – bringing semi-professional digital scanners into homes and smart offices across the globe.

The two new scanners – the PRO 2M and the Spectrum – are capable of digitizing objects of different shapes and sizes in the most user-friendly way imaginable. The RangeVision PRO product line comes equipped with 2Mpix or 5Mpix industrial cameras and allows for seamless switching between scanning zones. “The user can select the equipment depending on the desired outcome. Owing to the superior calibrations both models produce excellent results while offering an optimal price and quality ratio,” said Yuri Chaykin, founder and CEO of RangeVision 3D Scanners.

The PRO 2M Scanner

With an accuracy of up to 0.18mm and a 3D resolution of up to 0.03mm, the PRO 2M is user-friendly enough for DIYers and at the same time, can handle the projects of small manufacturing companies looking for quick 3D model prototypes. The PRO 2M has a widespread application that includes manufacturing and design, reverse engineering, quality control, education and science, art and jewelry. Designed by a leader in 3D scanners since 2010, the PRO 2M promises to provide “highly detailed data from complex, intricate and freeform geometries of different sized objects.”

Striking the perfect balance between simplicity of setup and high-quality 3D modeling, the revitalized PRO 2M is a super fast scanner designed to strategically “lower user engagement in the process of scanning.” According to RangeVision’s most recent press release, there is absolutely no need to adjust the project and there is a transition between one scanning zone to the next is a seamless experience.

RangeVision’s Spectrum Scanner

Based on structured light technology, RangeVision’s second product is a semi-professional 3D scanner equipped with three scanning zones. Just like the PRO 2M Scanner, the Spectrum is designed to digitize objects of various shapes and sizes. Even the most geometrically challenging objects are easy to model using the Spectrum’s state-of-the-art technology. Equipped with 3.1 Mpix industrial color cameras and an accuracy of up to 0.04mm, complex surface object geometries come out looking super precise for small manufacturing firms.

Designed for portability, the Spectrum and its accessories weigh less than 23 lbs – making this one super lightweight 3D scanner compared to competitors. Transporting the Spectrum to a customer’s office for a design presentation is a smooth process.

The 22nd TCT Show 2017 is from September 26th – 28th and will be held in Birmingham, UK. Outside of RangeVision’s two revolutionary 3D scanning technologies, the TCT Show “covers all technologies dedicated to accelerating the adoption of 3D technologies, be that software, inspection, and metrology, or simply new and innovative takes on conventional manufacturing.”

About RangeVision 3D Scanners

RangeVison is a cutting-edge developer of structured-light 3D scanners founded in 2010. While most of the 3D scanners available on the current market are targeted at digitizing objects of specific size and dimensions, RangeVision 3D scanners are capable of giving the full digital representation of any type of objects, from an earring to a car. The company’s mission is to produce affordable 3D systems which can be easily integrated into the existing workflow of different companies.
