Getting Started

Welcome to the 3D Scanner Guide!

The 3D scanner in the Fabrication Lab is an excellent tool to help digitize objects. You can bring your own object into the Fabrication Lab and take a 3D scan of it that can be used to create a digital video, a SketchFab design, or a 3D printed replication. 

Before you start

Make sure all of the cables are well connected:

  • Turntable cable, connected to the scanner head and the turntable
  • Power cord, connected to the scanner
  • USB, to the PC computer and scanner

Turning the Scanner ON/OFF

The scanner has a touch button. Tap ONCE to turn it ON, and tap TWICE to turn it OFF

Note: If this does not work, apply slight pressure while tapping.
