In this article we will talk about two 3D scanners by Shining 3D: EinScan H and EinScan HX. We will compare their specifications and capabilities and you can use this information to decide which device is more suitable for your needs. 

Chinese 3D equipment manufacturer Shining 3D, mainly known for its 3D scanner, added two models to its portfolio in 2020. The models are EinScan H and EinScan HX. These are hybrid 3D scanners: each of them features two different light sources and offers a wide range of capabilities but they are nevertheless different. Let’s find out how. We will talk about advantages and disadvantages of each model and compare them against each other.

EinScan H and EinScan HX: Capabilities Comparison

EinScan H

The EinScan H 3D scanner uses a proprietary LED scanning technology solution, as well as an additional infrared light source. The latter is what helps it to capture difficult objects such as hair and darker parts. This makes it especially good for scanning the human body and face. 

According to Shining 3D, adding a built-in color camera and increasing scan area helped the device to become faster at full-color scanning. Another useful feature is the ability to change between modes during scanning, as well as an improved overlay removal algorithm that compensates for small deviations caused by body movements.

The built-in color camera allowed the device to capture textures. Various post-processing features, from simplifying data to filling the holes provide effective use of scanning data. 

Despite boasting all of aforementioned features, the EinScan H is very easy to use, being essentially a plug and play device and is a very lightweight solution that weighs just 703 g, ending up being among the lightest 3D scanners on the market. The device comes with a full version of Solid Edge Shining 3D software. 

The device has an MSRP of around $4.999 which is expected considering its capabilities and professional-grade quality.

EinScan HX

The EinScan HX is a high-performance portable 3D scanner that is also easy to use. It features a hybrid light system, combining the LED light source with a blue laser (7 crosspoints) mode. 

Blue laser is a more expensive solution than the IR light, but it’s more effective for capturing black, glossy or metallic surfaces. The minimum point distance is 0.05 mm in the blue light mode, which results in accuracy of up to 0.04 mm which is comparable to many industrial-grade devices. This means that the device can also be used in the industrial setting: for scanning large automotive and aircraft parts, as well as for reverse engineering purposes. Moreover, the device excels at scanning humans as well. 

The device is truly multi-purpose and versatile and there are not many limits to what it could scan. It can be used for industrial purposes, in the medical field, for scanning art objects, interior elements and many other things.

This is an impressively capable device that is both compact and lightweight. It weighs just 710 g. It’s also easy to use. Apart from Solid Edge Shining 3D edition, the bundled software includes Geomagic Essentials Shining 3D edition.

The device costs $9,999. But it’s still more affordable than many comparable 3D scanners of this level. For example, Canadian-made Creaform Go! Scan Spark has an MSRP of $38,000, uses only white light source, is less accurate and heavier. The major advantage over the HX is the speed of scanning, the capability to get smoother angles and higher point density.
