Scan Dimension


Designers – Businesses – Start-ups

Show your product and inventions to the world for co-partners, prototyping, processing, pre-manufacturing, funding.

Workflow: Scan – improve – modify – share – copy

Benefits of Scan Dimension 3D scanners: Ease-of-use -precision – portable - affordable – straight-forward workflows

Prototyping and pre-production

Getting your product ready for production often takes iterations of sharing, modifying and printing prototypes with potential manufactures.

A 3D scanner helps you improve and share your original ideas with an all-in-one workflow.


You sit in San Francisco and your partners are in New York. Share your ideas across borders for instant step-by-step feedback.


No invention goes to market without capital. Present your products in 3D for potential investors. 

Common uses for Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are using 3D scanners to help design, build, test, and sell their products.  Typically, they are using one of three broad use cases or workflows:
  • Scan-to-share (Learn More)  - This scenario is about sharing scans with others.  Sales and marketing want to show products consistently in a multitude of formats and platforms.  Scan Dimension 3D scanner software can export a completed scan into the most commonly used file formats for further publication or distribution.  Scans can also be uploaded to Sketchfab or for easy online sharing.  Finally, scans can be imported into industry-standard tools in order to support Augmented Reality(AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications and workflows.
  • Scan-to-print (Learn More)  - With this use case, the focus is on allowing users to create a duplicate or replica of an object easily.  These scans will primarily be used for importing into a 3D printing program (slicer) and then output to a 3D printer with the option of printing in multiple mediums.  Objects may be scaled up or down prior to printing depending on the user’s needs.  
  • Scan-to-model (Learn More )- This workflow is about using scans as a starting point or reference point for more complex 3D modeling.  Users create a scan, and then import the OBJ or STL file into their modeling software of choice.  Once imported, they can use the scan as an 'outline' of the model they wish to create, iterate, or incorporate the scan into other work projects.

Sharing the 3D viewer:

Once you have your 3D model, upload it to P3D.IN
Quickly share using the Sketchfab or P3D sharing options
Place your scan into your web-shop, social media, or blog using the customized options available
