HDI Compact 3D Scanner

Plug and play system that captures a high resolution 3D scan in less than one second at sub-thousandth of an inch accuracy.

Delivering Accurate And Repeatable Results

The HDI Compact 3D scanners (next generation of the HDI 100 series) are designed for demanding industry applications that depend on accurate and repeatable scanning results. These portable systems combine the best of both worlds: the convenience of consumer-grade 3D scanners while producing industrial grade quality results of professional 3D scanners. They use LED structured-light technology to deliver stunning 3D scan results at an ultrafast scan speed of a fraction of a second.

How It Works

The HDI Compact takes a 3D image of what it can see at one time. To create a digital model of the entire object, scans have to be taken from all angles. It uses the following components to capture a 3D scan:

  1. Capturing Unit: The light source (LED light) projects a series of patterns onto the scan target. The patterns become distorted when projected onto the object’s surface. Duo cameras capture these images and send them to FlexScan3D.
  2. FlexScan3D Software: The control center that runs the entire operation. It uses the captured images to calculate the object’s depth and surface information to create a 3D scan. FlexScan3D then cleans, merges, and stitches multiple scans together (known as post-processing) in order to create a complete digital 3D model.

New Models for 3D Scanning Large and Extremely Small Parts

The HDI Compact series have now expanded to a full spectrum of 3D scanners for digitizing physical objects large and small with the addition of two new models: L6 and C504.

HDI Compact L6

HDI Compact L6 3D Scanner

The L6 produces the largest field of view out of all the 3D scanners in the HDI Compact series measuring approximately half a meter. The 3D scanner scan big parts with an accuracy of up to 80 microns (0.0020”).

HDI C504 scanning of a sea shell

HDI Compact C504 3D Scanner

At the opposite end of the spectrum, the C504 is the ultimate go to macro 3D scanner. The scanner can scan an object size of 1 to 1.5 cm with a remarkable accuracy and detail at just 6 microns.

Results You Can Trust

All HDI Compact 3D scanners are fully enclosed factory calibrated systems that make 3D scanning easy, similar to a point and shoot. With a robust exterior body while being unbelievably lightweight, the HDI Compact line of 3D scanners deliver accurate 3D scans with measurement repeatability you can trust.

Ready to Scan With Simple Setup

HDI Compact series of 3D scanners are ready to capture 3D scans with millions of 3D measurement points accurately only minutes after setup. Simply connect the scanner and install the included FlexScan3D software on your computer, and the system is ready for scanning. The system slim and portable which makes it easy to take along for traveling. The scanner will produce digital 3D models with the click of a button from real-world objects. FlexScan3D handles all of your post-processing needs from cleaning up scans to aligning and merging them into a complete 3D model. There’s no need to calibrate or recalibrate after scans, saving you time and improve on productivity.

Automate the 3D Scanning Workflow

HDI Compact with rotary table

Automate the 3D scanning process with the use of the rotary table, empowering you to produce better digital 3D models faster than ever before. Simply place the object on the rotary table and let the system do the work for you. The HDI Compact captures one scan each time the rotary table stops at predefined intervals. Post-processing of scan data is also automated as the system merges all the scans together to create a full digital 3D model. Automation is a time saver, especially when scanning similar objects in volume. Reduce the manual work and get amazing digital 3D models everytime.

The simple-to-use software development kit (SDK) and connectivity options give developers complete control over all aspects of the 3D modeling process—from capture to alignment to the final model—so you can fully customize the process to your needs. The scanners can output into a variety of common output formats (PLY, OBJ, STL, ASC, FBX) to accommodate different systems with ease.

Ultimate Inspection Solution

Get all the comprehensive 3D measurement data you need in one system to eliminate any product defects during the manufacturing process. To create larger fields of view, multiple scanners can be connected together using one computer to further reduce the scan time. This is an alternative low cost solution for quality inspection compared to using a robotic arm.
