Meso-Scanner V1

Short Description

The Meso-Scanner V1 captures three-dimensional objects in high resolution. It projects a structured light pattern on their surface. Using a patented mechanical lens-shifting method, the pattern is shifted over the object surface in discrete sub-pixel steps. Depth resolution is two to three times higher than without lens-shifting.



The Meso-Scanner V1 captures flat objects with up to 3 cm in height (e.g. coins, seals) and a maximum scan area of 12 cm x 8 cm.



  • Lens-Shifted structured light (linear actuator) for high resolution (up to 2,048 steps)
  • Captures very fine surface details
  • Color calibrated
  • Resolves even very smooth surface gradients
