Professional Handheld
3D Scanner

Take your 3D scanning capabilities up a notch

peel 3d is professional-grade handheld 3D scanning in its purest form. It has no useless gadgets to make it seem more interesting or appealing. It simply lets you make high-quality 3D scans of small or large objects while keeping your project on a budget.

It can scan most items directly without any preparation as it recognizes the shape of objects automatically. Trying to scan something very smooth? No problem! This 3D scanner can also use stick-on markers to let you scan the flattest surfaces.


It’s pretty easy (for real!).

Scan the object

Both the object and scanner can move freely: you see what you’ve scanned and what you’ve missed in real time.

Finalize mesh

Cleanup, improve, align and export like a pro with tools you simply will not find in any other affordable solutions.

Export file

Plenty of export formats are available to let you work with the industry’s best reverse engineering or 3D modeling software.

It can tackle a lot!

peel 3d can handle many different surfaces and materials!

May be challenged by

Here is what you should look out for when using peel 3d

Objects too small

Works best for objects over 30 cm in size (1 ft)

Highly intricate objects

Thin walls and features will be difficult to capture

Hair and fur

There are ways to get a little but it can be a challenge

Translucent, pitch black, mirrored finishes

Putting a bit of spray powder will help to scan these surfaces
