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
lenses which allow the user to scan any
sized object: from a coin to a yacht.
Thor3D’s Drake is a device that has
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
So one scanner with all three heads will
let you scan almost any object (except
maybe a building or a mountain) with
ONE SCANNER. ANY OBJECT.
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.
EASY-TO-USE, COMPLEMENTARY SOFTWARE
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.
EXCELLENT AFTER-SALES SUPPORT
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.
TWO MODES OF SCANNING
TRUST US, MARKERS ARE
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
