3D Scanner


What is it?

The EinScan-Pro 3D Scanner is used to scan 3D objects in order to make full-color digital 3D representations of those

objects. You can scan objects in hand-held mode or using a tripod and turntable. The digital file can then be printed

(subtractive or additive) using another piece of Fab Lab equipment. 


How do you use it?

  • Bring the object you'd like to scan to the media center. 

  • Check out the directions to learn the best method for scanning your object (hand-held, automatic, or free scan).

  • Scan your object and save your file to a flash drive, to your Google Drive, or email the file to yourself.

  • If you'd like to print the object, use a computer at one of the other machines to upload, edit, and print your object. Check the dimensions of your object before it prints. All prints must be paid for in advance and are non-refundable.  


What is the largest object the EinScan scan?

  • No real limit, but quality may be affected when scanning large objects.


How much does it cost?

  • There is no cost to use the scanner, but you will need to pay the cost for 3D printing the object if you choose to print it. All prints are $0.10/gram of filament used. Mrs. Henning will give you a price quote before she prints your file, and jobs must be paid for before they are completed. There are no refunds for lost or damaged base materials used in the Fab Lab as failure and mistakes are part of the activity.


How long does it take?

  • Prints usually take several hours, depending on the sizes of the objects. Objects will be printed on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, objects that are school-related will be printed before objects that are not for school.
