Scan Dimension

3D printing workflow


Reproducing an object can be time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone. The SOL and SOL PRO 3D scanners and software allow you to create a replica of objects easily. Using your preferred printing software, easily scale your scans up or down to meet your needs.


Simple Steps Using SOL or SOL PRO

  1. Scan the object using the SOL or SOL PRO 3D scanner with the included Creator software
  2. Review your scan in the Viewer software
  3. Export in one of the supported formats: OBJ, STL, XYZ, DAE, and PLY files
  4. Import your 3D model into your slicer software (such as Slic3r, Simplify3D, and Cura) for evaluation and clean-up, if needed
  5. Resize or transform your scan as desired
  6. Print, save, or export to have someone else print it
