Surphaser – 3D Laser Scanners

surphaser-3d-laser-scanners3D scanning is a practice that is growing in popularity. With Surphaser 3D laser scanners, users are able to scan three dimensional objects and duplicate them on a 3D printer. Objects of different sizes have easily been converted into smaller models for study. For instance, the car industry will scan the parts of competitor vehicles in order to determine what sets them apart.

Everything from mechanical parts to tools can be duplicated.

Features & Requirements

For the best quality 3D scanning, the Surphaser offers the following:

  • High scanning speed, scan data quality, and high accuracy
  • Achieves a scan ranges between 1m and 120m
  • The scan rate is up to ½ million points per second
  • Low noise
  • Millimeter-scale for medium range models and sub-millimeter accuracy for short range
  • Image quality is similar to a 100Mpix digital photo
  • The design is splash- and dust-resistant, allowing the Surphaser to operate in outdoor and industrial environments
  • The datasets that are exported are clean and will export into 3rd party cloud processing applications
  • Lightweight and portable

This is a device that makes 3D scanning much easier. The host computer only needs to possess the requirements that many laptop computers have today. This means that there should not be any need to invest in a new computer just for the ability to scan objects for 3D printing.


Surphaser 3D Laser Scanners also come with a number of options. Some of those options are:

  • B&W targets and target case that are SMR-compatible
  • A tilt sensor
  • Laptop-free data collection scanner control through a built-in scan controller
  • Li-ion battery that proves up to 2 hours of battery operation
  • Battery charger
  • Carrying case that is also size approved for most domestic airlines, allowing for easy travel. Weight limits can vary from airline-to-airline.
  • Tripod

The options you choose may depend on the type of 3D scanning that you intend to do. Surphaser 3D laser scanners are used for reverse engineering, architecture, historic preservation, forensics, the creation of replacement parts, animation and special effects, modeling, dimensional control, and much more. Nearly every industry can benefit from three dimensional models in some way. For instance, mechanics can use Surphaser 3D printers to ensure parts are fabricated perfectly versus using the standard trial and error. The end result is an investment that pays for itself again and again.
