The Freescan UE Pro is our latest and most impressive handheld laser scanner. Similar to the UE11 and UE7, the UE Pro also has settings for reflective and black parts, making it a very durable option to scan multiple part textures without the need to spray the surface. Developed by Shining 3D, this scanner’s accuracy specification is +/- 20 microns or +/-.00079”. More importantly, the Pro’s resolution can be dialed into an incredible 10 microns or .00039”.
Resolution is a scanner’s ability to capture fine detail. Many scanner manufacturers refer to resolution as “point spacing” or “point density.” So when set to 10 microns, this scanner can essentially capture sharp edges on parts.
While the UE Pro has an incredible resolution for capturing tiny details, it also has built-in Photogrammetry for error reduction when scanning very large objects. Unlike many scanners that deploy photogrammetry, the UE Pro doesn’t require serialized targets to be placed onto the object. Two scale bars that come with the scanner are all that are needed to tie photogrammetry into your scanning sessions.
Finally, through a USB3.0 connection, the 26 crossing lasers can scan at an incredible rate of 1.85 million points/second, making the scanning of very large objects incredibly fast and easy.
