A Ukraine Outfit Have Created The Most Accurate Desktop 3D Scanner

While 3D printers are advancing in print resolution, we can’t say the same for 3D scanner. Now, if you must be asking: what’s wrong with today’s 3D scanners? Well, nothing, really – if you are just scanning a cup or an apple. But if you are looking into scanning objects as complex as the sculpture of Bodhisattva Manjushri (see below for the scan), then it will take more than just two axes and a rotating platform to do the job, and it surely takes more than just laser to map out all the intricate details. This is where the D3D-s Desktop 3D Scanner aims to fill the gap and it wants to do it affordably. About that… affordability is quite subjective, but more on that later.

DELL has taken the wrap a new 15-inch laptop, the XPS 15 and a new AIO, Inspiron 15 7000. Will they be enough to make me ditch Apple? My answer is, maybe, but it is Windows, which kind of a meh. TBH, it is the OS that has kept me away from DELL. OK. Maybe to some extend, the pricing over here. Anyways, so here it is, the DELL XPS 15 and boy, is it a beauty. Just look at those super narrow bezel offers by its InfinityEdge display. Not only does it make the laptop look sleek, but it also makes the overall size a tad smaller.

With Star Trek BORG Cube PC, Your Assimilation With PC Will Be Complete
