FreeScan X7 is a handheld metrology 3D laser scanner. It adopts a 14-line laser ray classified as eye-safe (Class II). It uses the Hybrid of Optics and Inertia scanning technology for higher accuracy, speed, and reliability of the point cloud registration. It is mainly purchased alongside the DigiMetric Photogrammetric stereo system. In case of large scans, DigiMetric technology allows obtaining an accurate global frame point without the risk of cumulative errors.
Its handy design is suited for complex and narrow environments. Also, its low weight makes it exceedingly easy to carry and use. The FreeScan X7 can work in either indoor and outdoor environments and can operate without external clamping positioning. It provides professional accuracy and stability delivering optimal results. It boasts a large scan area, giving you the possibility to benefit from an almost unlimited scanning range. It also features a flexible and convenient scanning mode for industrial-grade results.
The FreeScan X7 works wired. The manufacturer also released a wireless, improved version, the FreeScan X7+. It gives you wider freedom in 3D scanning. It features the AirMaster wireless computational processor and a long-life battery for continuous scanning.
The FreeScan X7 series has been widely used in several fields for reverse engineering, quality inspection, custom-fit design, and more. Continue reading our comprehensive review.
For example, it has been used to scan and inspect some pieces of large gas turbines. Look at the precision of the below-pictured 3D model. Despite the big sizes, the scanner has been able to deliver great dimensional accuracy.
Thanks to its advanced technology and flexibility, the FreeScan X7+ has been used to scan a Jeep Wrangler.
FreeScan X7 and X7+ are professional, portable 3D laser scanners. Both devices grant a point accuracy of up to 0.03 mm, 0.05 mm resolution and a fast speed scanning of 480,000 points per second.
The 3D photogrammetric system DigiMetric provides an accuracy range from 0.l mm to 4 m. It is a great improvement in measurement speed and accuracy. It is able to reduce cumulative errors and data delamination when scanning large workpieces.
If combined with DigiMetric, the X7 scanner ensures a volume precision of 0.020 mm+0.025 mm/m.
FreeScan X7 series offers a single scan range of 300 x 275 mm. The global scan area ranges from 100 to 8,000 mm. It is ideal to measure large objects. Both X7 and X7+ can work at a stand-off distance of 300 mm with a 250 mm scan depth.
FreeScan X7 works wired to an external computer via USB 3.0. For wireless operation, you might opt for the improved X7+ edition.
The Plus version displays the collected data in real-time on your smartphone or tablet for an easier and more convenient scanning experience.
The collected data can be post-processed using the proprietary Shining 3D scanning program. It can export the files in a variety of formats, including STL, OBJ, ASC, DGM, and more. It is also compatible with the most popular 3D software. The software runs on Windows.
The X7+ features a built-in, multi-core SOC processor able to provide a hardware-driven calculation of the image data.
FreeScan X7 package includes:
