Designers, architects, engineers, we’re all collectively known as creators. The Revopoint MINI handheld 3D scanner just amplifies our creating (or rather re-creating) abilities.

Designed to be about the same size as a podcasting microphone (with the tripod and all), Revopoint MINI is an industrial-grade handheld 3D scanner with a staggering precision of 0.02mm. It uses a Class 1 Blue Light that lends it its high accuracy, while still allowing it to be safe on the skin. Just hold it against the object you want to scan and wave it around and like magic, the Revopoint MINI gives you a high-accuracy 3D model, complete with tolerances, textures, and even color information. This makes it perfect for a wide degree of applications, from 3D modeling and animation to medical design, automotive design, jewelry design, even archaeology.

For its size, Revopoint MINI is an incredibly affordable high-precision 3D scanner. Priced at roughly $436 USD, it gives you the ability to turn real objects into highly accurate 3D models that can then be used to generate CAD files, measure tolerances, perform simulations, reverse-engineer designs, and even 3D print product replicas.

The Revopoint MINI can be used in a handheld capacity or while kept on a tabletop surface thanks to the built-in tripod. As a handheld device, it allows you to scan much larger objects, and for smaller objects, Revopoint MINI comes with a compact, dual-axis turntable that allows it to automatically perform a 360° scan of your object without any blind spots. The A230 turntable (an optional accessory) comes with a 360° rotating ability and a 30° tilting ability. It automatically works with Revopoint MINI, so all you need to do is sit and watch your 3D model come to life.

Reverse Engineering – Quickly scan industrial spare parts with complex shapes and surfaces and output the models with a point distance of up to 0.05mm.

Fossils and Cultural Relics 3D Modeling – The scanner reproduces the original color and appearance of cultural relics. Its ability to output models with a precision of up to 0.02mm results in perfectly clear and detailed models whether scanning small objects such as insect fossils or larger ones such as dinosaur remains.

Jewelry Design – The MINI allows for the efficient redesign, engraving, and customization of jewelry, placing professional-level design capabilities and techniques in your hands with ease.

Medical Application – The bility to capture complete facial and body data in seconds, allows customized healthcare solutions that can be used to perform pre-and post-operation analysis and gather data needed for procedures such as plastic and restorative surgery.

3D Animation Production and Modeling – Animation, virtual reality, and augmented reality industry practitioners can use MINI to quickly scan objects, resulting in high-quality models and significantly improving game animation models’ design and production efficiency.

Quality Inspection – Accurately collect the surface data of objects without contact and compare the obtained 3D point cloud model with the designed CAD model, to judge whether the model meets the acceptable tolerance.

Revopoint MINI has a scanning frame rate of 10fps and relies on an upgraded algorithm that provides a smooth scanning experience without errors, weird glitches, or surface stitching errors. It supports both marker-based and feature-based scanning modes, for a variety of applications, and if you’re scanning something highly reflective or transparent, it works with AEBUS’ scanning spray, which creates a non-reflective temporary coating on your product that automatically vanishes in 4 hours, giving you enough time to scan even larger surfaces.

All 3D data gets captured to Revopoint MINI, which can then be transferred to a computer using a MicroUSB cable, or via Wi-Fi. It supports three common output formats (PLY, OBJ, and STL) and is compatible with major professional application software, although the Revopoint team has also developed three of its own software to help with the overall product experience. Revo Scan, as its name suggests, allows you to make immaculate 3D scans that can then be sent to a whole host of devices. Revo Studio, on the other hand, is a self-developed 3D model editing software that allows you to make edits to your captured model. Finally, Revo Calibration helps you re-calibrate the scanner and reset the camera’s internal parameters. It guarantees the precision of the MINI remains the same as the factory standard, ensuring you a high-quality and accurate 3D model every time.

At $436, the Revopoint MINI is a great investment for all sorts of creators. For people in entertainment media, it helps translate clay models into production-ready memorabilia, or into 3D models for animation and game development. For designers and engineers, Revopoint MINI is a great tool for reverse engineering, quality checking, and database-creating. Jewelry designers can benefit greatly from the scanning gadget too. By accurately capturing the details of the jewelry, the MINI allows for the efficient redesign, engraving, and customization of jewelry, placing professional-level design capabilities and techniques in your hands with ease. Finally, Revopoint MINI’s most valuable contribution is to the healthcare industry. Designed to be safe on skin, the Revopoint MINI allows you to create customized healthcare solutions that can be used to perform pre-and post-operation analysis as well as gather data needed for procedures such as plastic and restorative surgery or prosthetic design.

Designed to be compact yet limitless, the Revopoint MINI handheld gadget weighs a mere 160 grams (5.6 ounces). It works right out of the box without any preliminary prep, and requires just one single cable for charging and data transfer. The standard kit comes with the scanning device and mini tripod, a phone holder, calibration board, extended scanning plate, and a basic turntable. Upgrade to the $540 premium package and you get a handheld stabilizer and the dual-axis turntable too, completely upgrading your micro and macro scanning abilities (the scanning spray is sold as an add-on). Both the standard and premium kits are available for an early bird 43% discount on Kickstarter, with international shipping beginning in August 2022.
