The iSense 3D Scanner from 3D Systems snaps onto your iPad 4th Generation, transforming it into a 3D scanner that allows you to capture images in three dimensions right from your device. Optimized settings allow you to effectively capture objects of all sizes, up to full bodies and scenes as large as 10 feet tall and wide. The iSense was engineered for indoor use, as bright sunlight can reduce the quality of the scanned images. The scanner can also operate in complete darkness, although it will not be able to capture any color data.
The iSense will work optimally at a distance of 1.7 to 4.2' from the target object, although the full operating range is 16" to 11.5'. Closer objects will be scanned with more detail than objects further away, and if you get too close to your object, your screen will turn white, alerting you that the iSense is unable to capture any image information.
The iSense features customizable settings, a versatile scan range and scan volume, and automatic object recognition. Together with a variety of editing tools, you will have all you need to capture your object, adjust it, prepare a 3D file, and upload it to your 3D printer for creation.
To operate the scanner from your iPad, download the free iSense app from Cubify.com. This app provides you with a variety of editing tools that will help you crop, enhance, and solidify your scans, and prepare them for printing. Afterwards, upload them straight to your Cube printer from home, or send them via cloud printing from wherever you happen to be.
Included with the iSense are a bracket that will fit the scanner firmly onto your iPad 4th Generation, a battery charger, and a cable that transfers your data from the scanner to the iPad.
