The Scan3D Universe is a highly-mobile white light 3D scanner suitable for both reverse engineering and national heritage preservation tasks. Accuracy up to 50 microns allows the accurate measurement of complex geometry. White light LED projection allows the capturing of an object's true surface color for museological applications. An included compact flight case fits in carry-on luggage for transportation to on-site locations. An optional rotary table can automate data collection for a decrease in scanning and data post-processing time.
