SKD-S2 Solvent Based Developer - Matte Spray for 3D Scans
The SKD-S2 is an Aerosol spray is an essential aide to 3D Scanning with Light based scanners such as the Einscan, Shining3D series of 3D scanners.
For optimal scanning accuracy and tracking, white light scanners work best on when used on a matte white finish so the camera can pick up the projection lines clearly. But in the real world, not all objects you want to scan is an ideal finish. If you wanted to scan a glass mug, or a metal enclosure for instance, the transparent and metalic surfaces can interfere with tracking accuracy.
To remedy this, spraying on the SKD-S2 developer will impart a matte white finish onto the object making it an ideal finish for scanning. The spray is quick drying so you can begin to scan just minutes after application. When you're finished, the spray is designed to easily wash or flake off the object. (imagine a dry coating of fine chalk on your part)
We recommend testing on a small area, and washing/brushing it off to see how well the spray cleans off, but based on our testing, it's ideal for hard surfaces like glass, metal, plastic even 3D prints.
Originally developed for testing applications, SKD-S2 happens to have all the qualities that make scanning a much easier task and cleanup a breeze. While many scanners suggest to apply a paint primer onto your object, if you want a non-permanent solution. SKD-S2 is a fantastic way to achieve better scanning and preserving the integrity of the original after a quick wash.
From the manufacturer:
A bright white, non-aqueous developer, SKD-S2 creates an opaque white background for high-contrast penetrant testing and quickly draws penetrant out to create stronger, clearer indications for better inspection reliability and sensitivity.
