EinScan-Pro+ 3D handheld scanner and Einstart-C desktop 3D printer represent the most accessible 3D technologies on the market today for prosumers and consumers worldwide.

The era of real consumerisation trend of 3D industry has just begun: several innovative products are enabling users to digitally capture 3D objects and reproduce them more easily than ever before. With extensive experience and a large number of exclusive patents in the world of 3D scanning, Shining 3D brings the world-class 3D technology to CES 2017. On January 5th the company is officially debuting its new EinScan-Pro+ handheld 3D scanner and the Einstart-C desktop 3D printer.

At CES 2016, Shining 3D launched the EinScan-Pro 3D scanner. It features four scanning modes and is optimised for consumer and commercial applications in manufacturing, engineering, design, development, testing, artwork archival, animation and even human form acquisition. The new EinScan-Pro+ builds on the industry leading line scanning quality of the EinScan-Pro, while introducing a great number of innovations at an accessible cost.

These include:

The Handheld high definition scanning mode (Handheld HD Scan) now adopts a new international proprietary technology, achieving a perfect combination of 3D scanning speed and acquisition details.

The range of single-frame scanning has been increased by a factor of 1.6 times, in order to offer a comprehensive improvement in the scanning speed, in handheld scanning mode.

The new R² (Rapid Registration) scanning module, which has been added to the handheld rapid scanning mode (Handheld Rapid Scan), can be activated in both the EinScan-Pro and EinScan-Pro+. The R² is an optional paid module which needs to be activated after the purchasing of a license.

Shining 3D’s cycle continues with the introduction of the new Einstart-C 3D printer. This new highly affordable desktop system is now offering state of the art features making it easy and intuitive to use for everyone.

The Einstart-C is a stylish and compact 3D printer, based on fused filament fabrication (FFF/FDM) technology. It is equipped with a single nozzle extruder and can print objects as large as 6" x 6" x 6" using PLA, an eco-friendly material. Ideal for homes and schools, this truly plug & play system is fully enclosed to prevent injuries or burns while in operation; a sensor – which can be deactivated if necessary – checks that the door is closed before starting or resuming the 3D printing process. The new system also introduces a new auto calibration function with three built-in sensors inside the printing bed. By detecting the height of the sensors, the printer can fully automate the lengthy calibration process, even compensating for any difference in height during the print.

The Einstart-C features three printing modes:

  • As a standalone printer, it enables printing without any connectivity through its USB thumb drive.
  • Connected to a computer, with the enclosed USB cable.
  • Wireless printing, through a standard Wi-Fi connection.

Users can freely access Shining3D's rich online data library at 3DKer.com (www.3dker.com), select a 3D model and 3D print it on their Einstart-C with just a few clicks. With 4GB of local flash storage, the system will automatically save the print file before printing.
