The FreeScan Trio is a professional handheld 3D laser scanner from Shining 3D aimed at high speed and accuracy of captured data, ease of use, and portability. To ensure powerful performance and unrivaled versatility, the device is equipped with three high-resolution cameras and four effective scan modes varying in terms of speed, working distance, and level of detail.

The key feature of the versatile FreeScan Trio is its fast and innovative 98-laser-line mode making it the first marker-free laser 3D scanner. While eliminating the need for markers, the device is able to efficiently capture objects with rich geometric details at the ultra-fast scan speed, which significantly accelerates the user’s workflow. Three additional scanning modes with the use of markers deliver unrelenting accuracy and consistency of results. For more information, see the Scanning Modes Specifics section.

Another notable characteristic of the FreeScan Trio is that it features built-in photogrammetry that offers a remarkable volumetric accuracy. Thanks to this functionality, the scanner boasts an extended range of applications. The ergonomic design, weight of only 985 grams, and thoughtful button layout ensure comfortable device management.

The proprietary scanning software from Shining 3D has an intuitive interface and manifold automated tools to provide fast and quality data acquisition. Aimed at a smooth 3D scanning experience, it fits both new and seasoned users.

Considering all the highlighted features, the FreeScan Trio allows one to scan a wide variety of objects, from mechanical parts and engines to whole cars. It makes a perfect solution for multiple spheres, including reverse engineering, digital design, automotive, manufacturing, research, and others.

For example, check out these accurate renders captured by the FreeScan Trio. With this precision, the scanner will also be perfect for inspection, quality control, reverse design, additive manufacturing, and many other applications.

Scan accuracy

The FreeScan Trio is engineered with high standards in mind. It offers fast acquisition of professional-quality data with 0.02 mm accuracy (with markers) and high-precision performance.

Equipped with 3 industrial 5MP cameras, the model is capable of capturing the most elaborate details and the smallest features of the scanned objects, creating highly realistic and reliable 3D models.

In addition, the FreeScan Trio features a built-in photogrammetry mode that can achieve a remarkable volumetric accuracy of up to 0.02 mm + 0.015 mm/m. With markers and just one magnetic scale bar, the scanner will quickly lock in the spatial position of the target frame.


Scanning modes specifics

As a highly versatile solution, the FreeScan Trio offers several efficient scanning modes covering all your project needs:

98 laser lines — marker-free, ultra-fast scanning with the speed of up to 3,010,000 points/s

26 laser lines — 650 x 580 mm FOV for fast 3D scanning

7 laser lines — industrial-grade 5MP cameras to capture exceptional detail

1 laser line — optimized camera angle for pockets and holes

Scan volume

The FreeScan Trio offers a decent FOV of 650 x 580 mm and adjustable working distance depending on the scan mode. This offers enhanced flexibility to rapidly capture objects of various sizes.


Scanner controls and software

The Shining 3D FreeScan Trio operates through a plugged computer and uses a professional yet easy-to-use proprietary scanning software. Due to the control buttons located on the back side of the device, the user gets easy access to pause and resume functions as well as zoom adjustment directly in the process of scanning. 

The overall scanning process looks like this:

The ExScan Pro software ensures rapid data acquisition and features high processing speed as well as advanced post-processing capabilities. It delivers a responsive and streamlined 3D scanning experience with a number of advanced options for data editing.

For instance, the program covers dense point clouds and polygon meshes generation, texture alignment, mesh optimization, and more. It supports the most common file formats, such as PLY, OBJ, STL, ASC, FBX and 3D3.


Look and feel

The FreeScan Trio model is available in gray with black trimmings. Its stylish look and portable design make it ideal for a wide range of professional applications including reverse engineering, design, etc.

The scanner dimensions are 13 x 4.7 x 3 in (331 x 120 x 76 mm). It weighs only 2.2 lb (0.985 kg).
