scanners for CAD CAM options

Aaron Laster

Hello everyone!
We are looking into options for scanners (we have ipads with structure
scanners) and are interested in peoples feedback. It can be overwhelming!
Also the priciing of these range drastically so we are wanting to find out
what is going to give us great results but also not be overspending. Are
these $6000 and up scanners worth it? Seems excessive but I’m not sure. Of
course every manufacturer thinks there’s is the best and necessary. It just
seems like with advances in technology and additive manufacturing that
there are so many more options for scanners and it is overwhelming just for
the shape capture device alone.

Points we want to consider:
-We would prefer not using a tablet just because we have found it to seem
awkward going around a limb.
-using for as many items as possible (BKs, afos, FOs, etc)
-in a perfect world we wouldn’t need to do reflective dots for landmarks
– not a huge hand piece
– we are not wanting to spend 20 minutes prepping a patient to scan so
efficiency and ease of use is key
-what if patient moves?

Thoughts on Einscan shining H vs Peel 1 vs peel 2 vs structure scanner vs
comb vs Einsscan pro 2x, XYZ handheld scanner, creaform, M4D, fast scan,
thor3d, etc

I know softwares get to be a whole other topic so we are now just trying to
see opinions and experiences with he handheld scanner options in our

Thank you,
