Comfortable for Eyes, Easy to Scan Hair

The Einstar does not use a projector light while scanning, making it extremely easy on the person being scanned! Paired with the new "hair mode", the Einstar is capable of picking up hair data for a human scan and improves the overall data capture.

High Colour Fidelity

By utilizing a built-in RGB color camera, the Einstar is capable of generating 3D data with authentic colors.

Streamlined User Experience

The Einstar works smoothly and quickly with a scanning speed of up to 14 FPS. The Einstar also has smart tracking capabilities, as well as an intelligent algorithm and automatic alignment.

High Quality Data

With a point distance of up to 0.1mm, the Einstar allows you to collect high density point cloud data quickly and easily.

How can I scan dark, reflective objects?

The Einstar has a mode specifically for scanning dark or reflective objects. However, if additional detail is needed, the best solution is to spray your object with a matte spray like Aesub. This allows the scanner to accurately pick up all the details of your object.

Which scanner is right for me?

Depending on the size of the object being scanned, there may be a better solution for your project within the Shining3D line-up. To figure out which machine is best suited for you, feel free to contact us at
