Thor3D, based in Dusseldorf and Moscow, has released its latest handheld 3D scanner, the Calibry Mini, which it says will be of use to jewellers and jewellery designers.

The Thor3D Calibry Mini is designed to digitise small objects from 2-30cm in length.

This makes it the most precise of the company’s scanners to date, with high resolution of up to 0.15mm.

The lightweight device utilises blue light to scan small objects, and ships from September.

The company said that it is very easy to use and also has uses for medical professionals, museums, and educational institutions.

“During development, our R&D engineers conducted a series of tests and we can say that the quality and detail of the data is very compelling”, commented Anna Zevelyov, CEO of Thor3D.

She continued: “By adding the Mini to the original Calibry in our product portfolio, we created a complete 3D-scanning toolbox. Doctors will now have all the tools they might need to digitise any part of the human body (from a finger to a full-body scan). Museums will now be able to capture entire collections (from jewelry to full-sized vintage carriage).”

The product is part of Freeform Fabrication’s family of products.
