Technology in the Libraries

Details of technologies & labs available at Georgia Southern Libraries

Henderson Library has an Afinia EinScan-SE (Elite) 3D Scanner with Turntable.  Basically, it's a tabletop 3D scanner for scanning smaller objects between 1.5 and 10 inches in any dimension.  A video about how the Einscan-SE works is available here .

To make a 3D scan of an object, email and ask about making a 3D scan. Library employees will schedule a time to meet with you and help you 3D scan an object.

Objects should be larger than 30x30x30MM (1.2x1.2x1.2 inches) and smaller than 250x250x250MM (10x10x10 inches) in any dimension. Objects should weight less than 11 lbs.

Items larger or heavier than the above specifications can be scanned using a tripod using Fixed Scan Mode. To see a demo of scanning a larger item a similar 3D scanner, watch this video .  Instructions on large object scanning with the Einscan-SE are here .

Armstrong Campus

Learning Commons has an Afina Einstar Handheld 3D scanner. You can see a video demo here . As you can see, this scanner can be used to scan people and other large objects.
