3D Scanner // NextEngine



Suitable for Beginner to Advanced Users


Our professional-grade NextEngine 3D scanners capture objects in full color HD with multi-laser precision to support our breakthrough atoms-to-bits-to-atoms workflow. Use advanced scan technology to digitize physical objects with a remarkably diverse range of sizes and in a variety of materials.

There are no preset size limits. The NextEngine operates from macro to wide fields and you can composite multiple views together to capture objects larger than the field size. Many typical surfaces can be captured in their natural state. For difficult surfaces, you’ll learn easy techniques to prep objects. Built-in studio lighting provides an array of spatially diverse, diffuse illumination for shadow-free imaging. And these lights are specially designed to provide a wide color gamut for excellent color rendering. NextEngine captures full color optically-locked to geometry to produce rich full-color photo data for every surface point. NextEngine ScanStudio software, an integral part of the system, let’s you place “virtual beads” on your screen images to instantly align different views into a single model.

NextEngine can output 0.005 inch accuracy with clean data fidelity. The surface data is so clean, you can often use it straight from the scanner or use ScanStudio tools to process surface files. Your results can be exported to STL, OBJ, VRML, XYZ and other formats so you can bring scans right into popular design software like Fusion 360, SolidWorks, Rhino, 3ds Max, and more.
