Discover the Scan Dimension SOL 3D Scanner. This tool creates 3D files for 3D printing by scanning small objects. A scan typically takes 20-30 minutes, with most items requiring multiple scans. Scannable objects must measure between 1 inch and 6.7 inches in all directions (length, width, and height), with a maximum weight of 4.4 pounds. Please ensure that your item isn’t translucent, transparent, or black. Additionally, it should remain stable in at least one position (preferably two or more for multi-angle scans). 

But why stop there? Embrace your inner artist and become a human 3D printer with our 3D Pens! These pens extrude plastic filament that solidifies rapidly, bringing your designs to life in real-time. Use stencils to create flat designs, then assemble them into 3D wonders. If you’re up for the challenge, try drawing in mid-air! No matter how you decide to design, 3D Pens offer an exciting way to turn your imagination into reality. 

Using the 3D Scanner is free of charge. However, an additional appointment is required to print your 3D file with our 3D Printers. 3D printing (including using the 3D Pens) costs 5 cents per printed gram. Don’t wait any longer! Unleash the artist and innovator in you by booking an appointment at the Boone Innovation Lab.
