SOL PRO, a professional-grade 3D scanner from Scan Dimension, is said to be one of the most accurate desktop scanners in its class for quality assurance, product inspection, prototyping, and 3D printing tasks. The SOL PRO 3D scanner enters the market at a fraction of the cost of comparable solutions and exceeds standards for high-quality 3D scans.

The SOL PRO automates the entire 3D scanning process of calibration, scanning, and meshing, delivering an impressively high accuracy of up to 0.05 millimeter. SOL PRO utilizes a combination of laser triangulation and white-light technology to achieve high-quality results. 

View 3D texture, X-ray, and wireframe-rendered scans directly in the included software, or export the files for use with third-party 3D software. Integration with Sketchfab, an online resource to publish and source 3D models, makes it easy to share 3D files with collaborators.

“Following the success of our entry-level SOL 3D scanner, we saw an opportunity to grow our scanner line with a professional-grade solution that delivers results like no other in its class,” comments Jacob Bendix, chief commercial officer, Scan Dimension.

Array of 3D applications

SOL PRO is a 3D scanner for engineers and QA professionals, who can use 3D scanned objects to ensure exact copies of an original. SOL PRO 3D scanned objects can also be used for 3D printing or product inspection to ensure that manufactured parts comply with industry tolerance standards. For reverse engineering, users can scan replacement or discontinued parts when original drawings are unavailable.

Ready to scan in 3D

SOL PRO scans objects up to 170 millimeter in height × 170 millimeter in diameter (6.7×6.7 inch), with a minimum object size of 20×20 millimeter (0.8×0.8 inch) and a maximum weight of 2 kilogram (4.4 lbs). SOL PRO scans objects in as little as eight minutes in Turbo scanning mode.

SOL PRO 3D retails for US $1,899.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
