Exploring the High-quality Features of the MINI 2 3D Scanner

The Revopoint MINI 2 is a high-performing 3D scanner crafted to expertly capture intricate details on miniature objects with outstanding accuracy. With its blue light technology, it delivers a single-frame precision of up to 0.02 mm and an incredible accuracy of up to 0.05 mm. This implies an ability to capture even the smallest details on scanned objects with consistency.

When it comes to its scanning capabilities, the MINI 2 showcases a single-frame scanning range of 168 mm × 132 mm @ 250 mm. This offers enhanced object tracking and a diverse approach to scanning different objects. Coupled with scanning speed of 16 fps, it presents fast and efficient capturing of detailed objects.

Having gone through considerable enhancements, the RGB Camera now displays a pixel count that is twice the previous and a larger aperture, increasing its capability to capture detailed color information. The introduction of the LED flash system enhances color capturing by eliminating shadows and providing uniform and life-like color representation. Fortified with a 9-axis IMU, the MINI 2 maintains stability during scans by tracking every movement and eliminating unstable frames caused from unsteady handling or sudden movements, ensuring the scanner is always aware of its precise positioning.

Regarding connectivity, the MINI 2 features a new USB Type-C port for data, power, and swift setup. Wi-Fi 6 adoption improves connectivity, ensuring lower latency and stability for mobile scanning applications. Leveraging three tactile buttons for scan control, one to start/pause scans and the other two “+/-” buttons for adjusting Depth Cameras’ exposure during the scanning process, the MINI 2’s enhanced control contributes to a user-friendly, convenient, and efficient experience during operation.

The accompanying software, Revo Scan 5, serves as an intuitive portal for 3D scanning and powerful editing. Compatible with iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices, this software supports exporting models in STL, PLY, or OBJ formats, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of CAD, 3D modeling, and slicer software.
