What Are The Features Of The Second Peel 3D Scanner?
After the successful launch of Peel 1 on the market, the company has continued to innovate and has now brought out its sibling, the second Peel 3D scanner. Equipped with the same functionalities as its predecessor but with even greater power and at a more affordable cost, this piece of kit is worth every penny. Suited to the professional and hobbyist markets alike, you can buy this impressive 3D scanner right here at Solid Print3D.
One huge positive with this machine is that it boasts a lightweight and streamlined style, so picking it up and moving it around at will is pretty easy. Just 950g, the Peel 2 is lighter than its older counterpart, so using it to work on your scans is nowhere near as tiring as it was with the previous model.
With dimensions of 150 x 171 x 251mm, it’s also quite a compact machine, eliminating the usual inconvenience of travelling with scanning equipment. And for those looking to take the scanner with them on their travels, there’s also the option to buy its own special carry-case to keep it safe and snug while not in use.
The scanner works using structured light technology with white LEDs, which are safer for the human eyes than the ones used in laser-based scanning. It is fitted with three different cameras, each having four LEDs, plus a white light projector. These mean that Peel 3D scanners bring out 3D scans in full colour and texture.
The Peel 2 has a sleek and modern design that’s very user-friendly. The trigger is unmistakable as it’s a bright yellow colour, and this also helps you keep hold of the machine securely while scanning objects.
In terms of functionality, the machine doesn’t need to target any points with its scanning range of 0.3m to 3m. Its volumetric accuracy reaches as high as 0.5mm/m. This piece of equipment can also take 550,000 measurements per second within a scanning area of 380 x 380mm, which is the standard in the scanning industry.
The machine works with proprietary Peel 3D scanner software, which has impressed many users with its large selection of tools for the optimisation of the scanning process and the end result. Special features, such as the ability to put the scanning on pause when needed, are helpful and convenient.
There are tools for cleaning the mesh; aligning and merging the scans; correcting or deleting any distorted frames; and smoothing, mirroring, and simplifying models, as well as for filling holes that have been missed by the scanner. The software also offers numerous file formats like STL when exporting the completed models. With all these first-class features, there’s no wonder this product has garnered so many positive Peel 3D scanner reviews.
A defining feature of the Peel 2 3D scanner is its ability to scan an object’s texture as well as its geometrical features. With this, you end up with a complete picture, an essential feature when using the machine for art, designs, and even VR.
Peel 3D scanners are particularly effective at scanning people. Because of its effectiveness at scanning fabric along with its Semi-Rigid Positioning setting, the software is a lot more forgiving of any slight movements your subject might make.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I choose a 3D scanner?
- Resolution. While accuracy is one of the key aspects to look for when selecting a portable 3D scanner device, it is also crucial to check other factors, such as the scanning device’s resolution.
- Ease of use.
- Part size.
- Software Features.
How accurate is a 3D scanner?
The accuracy of Peel 3D scanners, and indeed all scanners, differs depending on the technology used in each specific model. Usually, the higher the accuracy, the more expensive the machine will be. With accuracy in the range of 0.1 mm or better, structured light scanners and lasers are suitable for use with high-resolution 3D printers.
What is a 3D scanner?
3D scanning is a technology used to capture high-resolution 3D prototypes of real-world objects. A 3D portable scan device takes a huge number of snapshots of the object and then fuses them into a 3D model. Because it creates a three-dimensional copy of the object, you can easily rotate and view it from different angles on your computer.
Does a 3D printer need a 3D scanner?
Peel 3D scanners in the UK can be underappreciated tools in supporting the marvel that is 3D printing. There are professional-grade 3D printing objects that don’t require a scanner, such as those that use open source or pre-made 3D models ready to be used. But generally, without a 3D scanner, models must be built from the ground up using software.
What is a handheld scanner used for?
A 3D scanner from Peel 3D is a portable electronic gadget that performs the job of scanning all kinds of three-dimensional objects in the real world. With this device, it’s now easy to capture 3D models of real-life objects, which can then be used for various purposes.
History Of 3D Laser Scanners
3D scanners were developed during the 20th century with the goal of recreating various objects and places accurately. Most industries use this device in their research and design departments.
The very first 3D scanning technology was built in the 1960s and made use of lights, cameras, and projectors to carry out the task. This had many limitations, though, making it tedious and time-consuming to scan objects properly.
In 1985, however, scanners that use white light, lasers, and shadowing to capture objects were introduced. With this new technology, almost everything could then be scanned effectively.
3D scanning has come a long way since then, and many products such as those from the Peel 3D range have perfected the process, making it faster, more detailed, and more convenient. Because of their astounding performance, the company and its products have received many positive Peel 3D scanner reviews online.
Things To Know About 3D Scanning
- Where to use it. If you want to print an object in 3D, but have no available 3D model file, you can use a 3D scanner to provide you with a starting point. By using this portable three-dimensional scanner, you can also cut down on the need for revisions and improve your workflow.
- How to use it. This depends on the object you are hoping to scan. Smaller items are better suited to a table-top scanner, and a Peel 3D scanner for large objects.
- Why use it. Since a 3D scanner is similar to a camera, you can use it to collect data from your preferred 3D model. With this data, you can simply build a new prototype.
Benefits Of 3D Scanning
While some Creaform Peel 3D scanner price ranges are indeed expensive, below are some of the well-known benefits of investing in one:
- A three-dimensional handheld scanner improves the efficiency of working with complex shapes and parts.
- It helps with designing the products to accommodate someone else’s part of the job.
- A 3D optical scanning device can replace the older or missing parts easily.
