3D scanner-related hardware consists of 3D laser scanners and structured light 3D scanners. A typical 3D scanner has a scanner head, a platform, and software for measuring the dimensions of objects. The integral part of the scanner hardware includes a projector and camera(s). The projector emits coded light patterns onto objects in the form of strips or dots, which get deformed when the light strikes the surface of the object. After the projection, the camera captures the deformed image. A handheld 3D scanner may contain 1, 2, or more cameras. Advancements in 3D scanning systems drive their adoption across several industries and thus, contribute to the overall growth of the hardware segment of the 3D scanner market.
