NO SHARP ANGLES but works okay for gnomes, pot belly pigs, coffee cups if they are white and in perfect lighting. As a product design engineer I did all I could to try to get this scanner to work as I desperately wanted it to help me save hours of work and also having to rely on the help of others (or lack of) to provide 3D print files. I have to say that I am terribly disappointed with this scanner.Out of the box, and with poor result after poor result, and of course, thinking it was me, I spent so many hours testing all kinds of lighting scenarios even configuring lighting arrays and racks of LED 256 capable programmable lighting, The R&D lab has 12 florescent, 4 bulb fixtures, all mounted above and controlled by 4 circuits for perfect light control. Tried several color backgrounds, distances and angles. Used all the different software settings for light, medium, dark scanning, tried lighting from below, 3 sides above and absolutely NOTHING WORKED! All scans looked like they were melted. We emailed tech that the mesh looked good while scanning, and it looked good while forming…

Defective unit and Bad customer service I ordered the scanner for research purposes. Since this is a new company, and a new product, I decided to add the service plan ($150) to make sure that any issues can be resolved easily.The scanner arrived about three months ago. We tried to use the scanner but for some reason, the scan always failed, even for the simplest objects. Upon contacting the customer service (and sending the message logs back and forth), it was found that one of the lasers was not working. After the customer representative made absolutely sure that it was indeed the laser issue, they decided to send us a new laser unit with instructions to install the laser. We did everything that they suggested. After hours of trying different steps and talking on the phone with the representative, we could not figure out what the problem is. Over two months have passed in this process. Still, instead of sending us a new scanner, they want to take a look at what the problem is. They have just sent us the…
