Mephisto EX

“The Mephisto EX is a white light 3D scanner which is fast, flexible and powerful. White light scanning technology allows scans to be taken very quickly and accurately so is great for scanning people as well as inanimate objects. The system allows for the scanning of a huge range of objects from the very large to the very small. The Mephisto EX is ideal for capturing highly detailed objects and with the Micro add-on, can capture incredibly fine detail. The EX is also fantastic for scanning people and multiple scanners can be linked together to make an incredibly fast and detailed 360 body/face scanner.”
