Sense 2 is a handheld laser 3D scanner able to capture full-color images. It is an upgraded version of the original Sense model from Cubify. Like the predecessor, it is powered by structured light technology and an Intel RealSense sensor. It is a practical device with a simple UI, which makes it easy and fast to use. Its lightness and small size make it highly portable and perfect for almost any bag. The high color resolution and the accomplished object tracking deliver good texture quality and high-geometry in seconds. Sense 2 operates in a range of 20 cm to 160cm providing full-color images viewable within a 45-degree horizontal visual field. It gives you the possibility to capture a variety of small-to-medium-sized objects and people with high flexibility.

It is a low-cost device widely used by hobbyists, students and small businesses alike. It is equipped with two front cameras and an automatic object recognition function. Also, it employs a class 1, secure laser. It allows streamlining the archiving and preservation of existing items as well as the production processes of new products and gaming applications through 3D scan data. It is compatible with 3D printers and comes with dedicated software for quick editing the scans and preparing them for printing.

It has been used to scan a variety of objects and people for the production of custom-fit products, miniatures, video game characters, and more. Read on to find out more.

A couple of artists and makers 3D scanned and then printed a model of the Brazilian priest, Padre Cícero, starting from a little statuette. Through 3D scanning with a Sense 3D scanner, they have been able to recreate and refine the figure into a much more detailed and special piece. Have a look at the final result.

Scan accuracy

Sense 2 is a portable laser scanner that can scan objects at 1 mm resolution and close to 1 mm accuracy. The color resolution of 1920 x 1080 provides good color texture mapping. The depth sensor shows a 640 x 480-pixel resolution. It uses two different cameras, one to gather the shape and size of the objects, the other one to capture the colors. The two cameras allow capturing decent quality 3D scan data for prototyping and household. The automatic object recognition detects the product to scan ignoring the background. Sense 2 works well with people’s faces.
