Drake is a portable, wireless 3D scanner 

that can capture almost any object, 

large or small.

It is the first hand-held 3D scanner that 

has interchangeable 

lenses which allow the user to scan any 

sized object: from a coin to a yacht.

           three swappable sets   of lenses which 

           are often called “heads”.

               Each head has a name (Mini, Midi, Maxi) 

               and is used for scanning different types 

               of objects.

               So one scanner with all three heads will 

               let you scan almost any object (except 

               maybe a building or a mountain) with 

               one device.





This device is truly portable, as it weighs 

around two kilos, is hand-held and comes 

equipped with a built-in touch screen, 

a battery and an on-board computer.


This means you can take it on a plane, 

a train and out to a heritage site in the 

desert and easily digitize any object 

away from the office and those 

often-hard-to-find electrical outlets.


The battery life is approximately 1.5 

hours (of non-stop scanning) and a 

complementary carrying bag is 

included in the price. So you are 

good to go!




      The Drake 3D scanner enables you to scan the most 

    difficult items. Historically, certain types of 

    objects, such as thin walls, sharp edges, human 

    hair, and shiny surfaces were difficult to scan 

    due to their physical properties. 

    Drake uses sophisticated algorithms and patented 

    mathematical methods to overcome these difficulties 

    and produce great results. Read more about Drake’s 

    exclusive hardware and software technology.



The powerful, yet simple-to-use, Thor3D Suite is complementary and is included with the purchase of every Drake 3D scanner. There are 

actually two programs: one that is built into the scanner which facilitates real-time image acquisition and a second one, which is meant 

to be installed on your desktop for data export and editing. The software on the scanner is simple. It only has a few buttons such as 

“Start”, “Stop” and “Shut Down”.

The desktop software has two modes: Simple and Advanced. The Simple Mode has just four buttons, while the Advanced mode has many 

features for expert users who want to correct texture, simplify the mesh, align several scans into one or do any one of a dozen other 

operations to prepare a scan for 3D printing, for example.



Drake is sold through Thor3D’s vast, international reseller network which will continue providing excellent customer service after your 

purchase. Every reseller has gone through extensive technical training and will offer you, their customer, a complementary training 

session and unlimited technical support.

The scanner price includes a one-year warranty and Drake was designed in such a way that many potential issues can be solved remotely 

by logging into the device via WIFI. Moreover, keeping in mind certain difficulties in importing/exporting battery powered devices in 

some countries, we’ve designed the battery to be easily swappable by the reseller.







         SUPER COOL


                    Scanning without markers sounds easier – why bother? Most 

                    industry professionals will tell you that even though markers 

                    sound like an extra layer of work (you need to affix the markers 

                    to the object before starting to scan), they help in several ways 

                    and often, even make the job of 3D capture easier for the 

                    person doing it. And here is how:


                    Doing the job without markers frequently causes hand-held 

                    scanners to lose their orientation during the 3D scanning 

                    process. That means you have to start over. Scanning with 

                    markers prevents that from happening, making the process 

                    very easy and fast.


                    Scanning without markers leaves you unsure of the quality of 

                    the gathered data. In the absence of markers, the software 

                    relies on geometry or texture information it captures to “glue” 

                    all the data together.


                    This information is frequently unreliable and the algorithms do 

                    not always work well. This means when the software produces a 

                    final model, although it may seem right to the naked eye, the 

                    geometrical inaccuracies could be as much as 5-10mm. Using 

                    markers eliminates that problem and ensure the most accurate
