David SLS-3 (now known as HP 3D Scan Pro S3) is a professional, desktop, structured light scanner developed by the German company David Vision Systems and 3D Solutions, now acquired by HP. It is a new version of the previous David Structured Light Scanner 2. The HP 3D Scan Pro S3 (David SLS 3) ships as a kit and includes all the components you need to start 3D scanning. Thanks to the structured light technology, the scanner can capture colored textures and complex geometries in short times. This portable device can be placed at your convenience in front of the surface to be scanned. It can perform a single scan in one click capturing up to 2.3 million DPS.
It is equipped with a variety of high-quality, well-finished components, including an HD video projector with a special lens for a large focus range, steady calibration panels made of glass, and a tripod for stable shots. It can work with the 3D Automatic Turntable Pro for faster operation.
The device is able to capture single scans of small-to-medium parts in 2 seconds. You can start the scanning process with a single click in the proprietary software. A real-time preview of the digitized model immediately appears on the screen. By stitching the captured surfaces, the software is capable of generating accurate 3D models of complex, physical products with up to 0.05 mm resolution. The digital files created can be imported in a variety of 3D CAD programs enabling 3D printing or CAD/CNC manufacturing. Keep on reading for additional information.
One user 3D scanned a little lion model. The final result is amazing. The scanner, along with the software, has been able to produce a watertight model with fine texture and capillary details.
The lion’s face is smaller than a fingernail. Despite the sizes, it shows a great resolution.
The HP 3D Scan Pro S3 (David SLS 3) is a professional 3D scanner based on a patented structured light technology. Thanks to this advanced technology, it can produce precise, colored scans with an accuracy of up to 60 microns in short times. It is even able to scan reflective surfaces with ease. A single click on the dedicated David software lets you perform a scan and generate a real-time preview of the digitized model in just a few seconds, making it convenient to use.
It is engineered with an Acer K11+ Projector. The high focal range of the lens enables easy calibration for both large and small scanning area. It runs at twice the speed (50 fps) of its predecessor and offers a better resolution (2.3 million DPS). It generates models with high mesh density and rich in detail.
Look at the accuracy of this scan. You can even see the tiny grains of the hand.
The HP 3D Scan Pro S3 (David SLS 3) 3D scanner has no capturing area limitations except when using the calibration panels provided. In that case, its maximum shot size is 300 x 500 mm.
The scanner is controlled via a USB-wired computer and a remote controller.
The scanner works with the proprietary HP 3D Scan software. This one-click operation software is able to transform each shot into point clouds. Then, it automatically aligns and assembles the various scans to produce a complete 3D textured model. It allows exporting the scans into a variety of 3D file formats, such as STL, OBJ, and PLY, compatible with the most common 3D printing and CAD applications. The software runs on Windows.
