Creality has introduced the latest in its line of scanners, namely the CR-Scan Ferret 3D scanner. This compact and easy-to-use device offers an unprecedented level of scanning quality and convenience at a price comparable to the company’s Ender 3 series 3D printer.
With its advanced features and unmatched portability, the Ferret will revolutionize the way we digitize the world around us, just as the company made 3D scanning more accessible with its previous scanner, the hugely popular CR-Scan 01.
Read on for more information.
Ferret’s superior performance is powered by a dedicated ASIC depth computing chip, which processes megapixel images at 60 frames per second. This ensures smooth and fast scanning with low power consumption. The device offers two scanning modes: wide range and high precision. The wide range mode allows fast scanning of large objects, while the high precision mode offers precise scans of small to medium sized objects with an accuracy of 0.1mm and a 3D resolution of 0.16mm.
One of the standout features of the Ferret is its full color scanning capability. Its built-in high-resolution color camera captures real textures and automatically maps them onto the 3D model, producing vivid, realistic scans. Furthermore, the Ferret can scan outdoors even in bright sunlight, thanks to its advanced optical technology and intelligent algorithm. It is also very adaptable when scanning black and dark objects, which can be a challenge for other 3D scanners.
Weighing in at just 105 grams, the Ferret is incredibly lightweight and portable. Its compact design allows it to easily fit in a pocket or backpack, making it perfect for scanning on the go. The device can be powered by 5V power bank or even Android phone, further increasing its convenience.
Creality has developed a dedicated scanning app and software to accompany the CR-Scan Ferret. With easy-to-use features such as one-click model optimization, automatic multi-position alignment, automatic noise removal, simplified topology, and color texture mapping, users can effortlessly achieve clean scans and complete models. Creality Cloud also allows users to upload, share, split, and send scanned objects to a 3D printer with just a few clicks.
