The new Afinia ES360 3D Desktop Scanner delivers high-accuracy 3D scanning faster than ever before and is now In Stock at Octave Systems. The scanner is a perfect fit for educators, designers, and home hobbyists looking to expand the capabilities of their 3D printer.

Using safe, white light scanning, the ES360 Desktop 3D Scanner is easy enough for anyone to use. Just “click” the start button, and the scan process will turn your object into a 3D model that can then be printed on a 3D printer, like Afinia’s award-winning H480 or H800. The ES360 is light-weight, at less than 8 lbs, allowing for easy transportation, too.

The ES360 is the only two-scan-mode scanner on the market. Choose between automatic scan or free scan, depending on your needs and the size of the object. Automatic scan mode allows for a maximum scan size of 215x215x200mm while the free scan mode allows for a maximum scan size of 700x700x700mm.
