*SLS-1 Structured Light Scanner*
We are finally offering a complete scanner package for Structured Light
*Features and advantages*
The SLS-1 scanner combines the latest DAVID software with perfectly
suitable hardware for comfortable and flexible 3D scanning at a great value
With an industrial camera, a high-quality lens, a specially adapted
projector and solid calibration panels, the SLS-1 is suitable for
industrial applications, however still affordable for ambitious hobbyists.
Tripod, mounting rack, cables - the package contains all you need (Windows
As you may know, SL scanning is really convenient: No manual scanning, only
one mouse click, and the 3D scan result appears on screen within just a few
seconds. The calibration panels are no longer required during scanning -
the SLS-1 scanner is mounted on a tripod and can simply be placed in front
of the scanned surface. As usual for all DAVID solutions, the scan size is
very flexible, from coin (0.08 mm resolution) to couch (500 mm scan area),
And 360-degree scans can be created easily: Just like with our laser
scanners, you simply collect several scans from all sides, then let the
well-proven Shapefusion software align and fuse them into one closed model.
*Experience and results*
The first customers are already working successfully with the scanner, and
we receive a lot of positive feedback about its convenience, speed and
flexibility. Our forum is full of great scan results - Thank you for that!
Some of our users have had a few initial difficulties (especially those
using 3rd party webcams), since every scanner and its settings can be (and
must be) correctly adapted to various scan conditions and surface
properties. Of course most users' problems have been solved, not least
thanks to great support that our forum community gives each other! With
these experiences we have been able to improve the software and the user
manual. Now all users can achieve decent scan results quickly.

*New DAVID Version*
For version 3.4 we have concentrated on making things easier, both for
beginners AND experts. DAVID now shows fewer unnecessary controls and
pop-up windows, it projects a helpful setup pattern into the scene between
scans, etc... Also the camera compatibility has been improved: DAVID now
supports more camera models than ever. Also it can directly and precisely
control the exposure time, which is the most important camera setting.
Of course there are more improvements under the hood, so please update!
