The new DAVID SLS-3 is the bigger brother of the well-proven SLS-2. It offers a higher scan resolution and a higher speed at the same time! The main improvement is the new Full-HD camera, the DAVID-CAM-4-M. It has a fast high-resolution chip and a USB-3 interface, that's why it's possible to scan with 54 FPS at maximum resolution (1920*1200) and still be about 50% faster than the SLS-2.
Furthermore, we have improved some details in hardware and software to make handling even easier.
Here are the specs:
- Scan size: 60-500 mm
- Resolution/Precision: 0,05% of scan size (up to 0,05 mm)
- Scanning time: One single scan within 2 seconds (or up to ~10 seconds, depending on settings and computer speed)
- Mesh density: Up to 2,300,000 vertices per scan
- Export formats: OBJ, STL, PLY
And this does not mean that the SLS-2 has lost its value! We have many customers who don't need the highest speed or resolution, in fact often the SLS-2 resolution is even too much and some users reduce the data afterwards. You may want to go for the SLS-2 and save some money. And if you need the extra speed and resolution, or simply want the best there is, the SLS-3 should be your choice. We will keep offering both, SLS-2 and SLS-3, and you can decide which model you prefer.
