Eora 3d makes possible 3d scanning in high precision with a smartphone

Eora is a 3d scanning technology that allows you to scan object models with high precision from
your smartphone. The technology employs green lasers rather blue lasers. The advantage of eora
over other 3d scanners is that it is low cost compared to the scanners that operates at the same
accuracy. Below is the image of the EORA 3D scanner

Eora 3d offers fast, affordable and also portable 3d scanning functionality. The scanner can be
integrated with all the modern smartphone versions that has pretty good optics. It can work with
both android and ios powered smartphones. The device needs to be connected to the smartphone
through the Bluetooth 4.0 channel. The application for Eora 3d is freely downloadable from both
Google play store and ios apple store.

Eora 3d scanner precision

The precision of eora 3d device is sub-100 microns. We get colored digital 3d models as the output
with the device. Up to 8 million vertices is the resolution available in eora 3d.

Range of eora 3d, the smartphone 3d scan technology 

The range of the device is one metre or about 3 feet.

Green laser: The Technology behind Eora 3d scanning

Most scanners use red laser for capturing details, but not eora 3d. The feature that isolates eora
from other 3d scanners is its use of green laser for scanning. This allows to get a quality scan in low
light conditions and also from outdoor scans.

Turntable Accessory

Eora doesn't normally need a turntable for scanning models. It can integrate images taken from
different angles and stitch it to make a full 3d model. But to scan easier very small objects,turn table is a good option for easier scanning. The Eora 3d also has a turntable wireless accessory if u need to scan very small objects. The turntable is connected wireless through Bluetooth. The turntable has a diameter of 125 mm (that is 12.5 cm).

The eora 3d scan app

To make the scan, tap on the scan button from your smartphone. The dropbox integration is available to store to your dropbox cloud storage space.

Eora 3d scanned file

The files will be stored to library. The file can be stored viewed and navigated through the app.
The files can be exported as .PLY, .OBJ and .STL.

How to choose the best 3d scanning service for you?

Before we confirm a 3d scanning service we have to ask three questions ourselves to know if it is the best service provider for us. We have to look and question three aspects of it. Is it fast, will it give the accuracy we require for our project and is it affordable.

How to choose the best 3d scanning service for you

Three questions: Is it fast enough, accurate enough and affordable?

The fastness of the service depends on the type of technology they use. Most modern technology ensures faster service and faster renderings. You have to ask which is the technology they use. Whether they use Lidar technology or structured light technology etc.

The accuracy requirements varies on the after-application of the 3d scanning. The accuracy requirement for the heritage conservation may not be the accuracy required for a construction site. For construction we may need accuracy in the order of meters or centimeters while for a heritage site conservation site the order of accuracy must be in the order of millimeters.

Is it affordable? This factor is important and correlated to the above two factors. The cost varies with the technology or equipment used, accuracy etc.

Here are some of the factors that will affect the 3d scanning costs.

Complex geometry

For complex geometry, the scanning has te done in great resolution. For greater resolutions take greater time to process. More processing time or more complex in less times means higher cost.


Texture is another factor that determines the cost. To reverse engineer something to its finest appearance with texture details onto a digital output,
we need more advanced technology. The more advanced the technology is , more likey is its range of cost.


As said above finer resolution capture needs more processing time and more processing time means more money.

Area of Capture

The area of capture is directly proportional to the cost of scanning services.

Post scanning measurement documentation

For some the 3d scanned models are just for visualizing it in a digital environment. While for some other projects, there may be requirements for printing or surveying. If its for surveying, they may need a post scanning measurement documentation service too in addition to the scanning service. For them, skill of survey experts are additionally needed to record and visualize each and every elements of it in a meaningful data form. This is required for authorizations or in licensing.

Suppose if owner of an oil rig needs a site-plan for authorization purposes, he may need to interpret the 3d scanned data to the form of real drawings for submitting to the authorities. To achieve that he may need the service of a survey professional to prepare a dimensional survey drawing out of the 3d scan. While employing a survey professional, the cost of project is affected too.
