REVOPOINT MIRACO

Please note that this is a beta prototype, and the product ID and packaging are for reference only. The final mass-produced version may have differences.

Welcome to the unboxing of the highly anticipated REVOPOINT MIRACO scanner. Revopoint has consistently delivered outstanding products in terms of build quality and functional results, and the new addition is no exception. In fact, it stands at the forefront of the scanner family with a fresh concept and new applications.
The MIRACO is a standalone scanner, which means it can operate independently of a PC or smartphone, introducing advanced scanning functions.

Let’s dive into this step by step, starting with the unboxing of the STANDARD EDITION.

The MIRACO arrives in typical well-packaged Revopoint fashion, with an impressively large box this time.


Upon opening the package, you’ll immediately notice the MIRACO kit’s packaging, with calibration boards for the scanner beneath. It’s worth noting that Revopoint scanners come pre-calibrated and do not require additional initial calibration. The calibration boards are for potential future recalibrations to ensure top-notch scanner performance.


Inside the actual packaging, we find an additional smaller calibration board. This smaller board is used for calibration in “Near” mode, as this scanner is the first to offer the ability to work in two ranges: “Near,” up to 300mm, with a precision of 0.02mm per single frame, and “Far,” up to 600mm, with a precision of 0.2mm.


The package also includes a booklet with test certificates and a black shielding cloth for scanning on flat surfaces with objects placed on them.


There are high-reflectivity markers for “Marker” mode scanning, a reusable adhesive paste stick used to hold small pieces in place during the scanning process, and the Magic Mat.


The Magic Mat, a significant innovation introduced by Revopoint, is a 500x500mm carpet with high-reflectivity markers printed on it. This allows you to perform marker-mode scanning simply by placing objects on the mat, without the need to apply markers to the object itself.


A portable turntable with a pad, also featuring high-reflectivity markers, is included for scanning small objects. The turntable is powered via USB-C and offers simple clockwise or counterclockwise rotation controls, with adjustable rotation speed.


You’ll find a fast charger with 65W output and three adapters for various regions. This 65W charger, labeled Revopoint, enables rapid charging of your MIRACO, reaching 80% charge in just 30 minutes.


There’s a more substantial and more widely adjustable tripod to securely support the MIRACO.


The iconic Revopoint bust, often associated with the brand, is included for initial scanning tests.


Various USB cables are provided for different purposes, including:

  • a smaller USB A - USB C cable for powering the turntable;
  • a USB C 3.0 cable for both recharging our scanner and connecting it to the PC for data transfer;
  • a USB C - HDMI cable for connecting the MIRACO to a monitor and comfortably viewing the work.


A 1/4" screw attachment strap is included, allowing you to secure the scanner for handheld use, similar to a camera.

Now, let’s get to the most anticipated part and take a closer look at the MIRACO scanner itself.


The MIRACO impresses with its compact size, making it the world’s smallest standalone scanner, weighing only 700g and measuring 132x45x27. It feels solid and well-balanced to the touch. The two side grips allow for a secure and comfortable hold without interfering with the sensors.


On the front, you’ll see the sensor bar housing four depth cameras, two outer cameras for “Far” mode and two inner cameras for “Near” mode. To the right, between the two depth cameras, is the 48-megapixel RGB camera with two LED lights, ensuring perfect texture capture regardless of external lighting conditions. The depth cameras each have two infrared illuminators. In the center of the lens bar, there’s the Class 1 infrared laser projector.

The system speaker is located at the bottom front.


The right side of the scanner features the charging and connection port, which is a USB-C, a standard connection adopted by Revopoint starting with the POP3.


On the left side, you’ll find the power button for turning the device on/off or putting it on standby.


The top has the capture and scan start/pause button. This scanner introduces a new Single Shot scanning feature, allowing for highly precise scans using the scanner like a camera. It takes a series of photographs of the subject, which are automatically captured by the depth cameras and fused together to create a 3D model that is coherent in shape and dimensions.


The bottom includes a 1/4" screw attachment for mounting on a tripod or for use with the provided carrying strap.


At the rear, there’s a large 2K Amoled touchscreen display with a 6.1-inch diagonal. The display is mounted on a hinge, allowing it to be tilted or flipped 180°.


Now, let’s delve into the technical specifications of this scanner:

  • 2.4GHz 8-core CPU

  • 16GB RAM (optional 32GB)

  • 256GB Hard Drive

  • 5000mAh battery, allowing 2 hours of continuous scanning, with 50W

fast charging, enabling it to reach 80% charge in just 30 minutes.

  • IP45 protection rating suitable for industrial use

  • Connection via USB 3.0 or WiFi 6

  • Android 12 operating system

  • IMU 9-axis

  • Frame Rate 15 fps

  • Scanning Environment Indoor and Outdoor

This scanner represents a breakthrough as it is entirely standalone, allowing all operations, from scanning to post-processing of point clouds, mesh creation, to be performed directly from the scanner without the need for a PC or tablet. You can still export data at any processing stage (from point cloud to textured file) for external processing.

Another significant advantage of the MIRACO is the ability, for the first time, to have a versatile device with a DOUBLE OPERATING RANGE that allows it to be used in both “Near” mode for small scans with high detail, such as small mechanical parts, coins, jewelry, providing precision down to 0.02mm at distances of up to 150mm, and by simply selecting “Far” mode, it can be used for scanning large objects like people, car parts, entire vehicles, statues, with a precision of 0.2mm at distances of up to 300mm. It’s easy to see how the MIRACO is the best choice for anyone needing to scan objects of various types in diverse environments, from reverse engineering to environmental surveys, from the automotive sector to industrial inspections, through rapid prototyping, virtual environment creation, video game development, artistic creations, boat and camper furnishing, and more.

I must say that the MIRACO has truly impressed me both in terms of build quality and usability. I’m no stranger to 3D scanning, but having this scanner in my hands has opened up new possibilities that, before, if not impossible, would have been much more difficult and cumbersome to achieve.

I hope these initial impressions are interesting to you, and please stay tuned for future showcases of the MIRACO by Revopoint.

Please note that the MIRACO is currently in crowdfunding on Kickstarter with a 40% discount off the list price.

Let’s start with a very simple experiment, the scanning of an olive branch retrieved from the garden.
The branch measures 400x200x160 and was scanned freehand in Near mode with high precision and feature tracking.
The subject was repositioned 4 times, and a total of 1793 frames were captured.
All settings related to the exposure of the depth cameras and the RGB camera were left on automatic.
The point cloud was fused in Advanced mode at 0.3mm, and the mesh was created at level 6.
The resulting model is perfect, both in terms of the shapes captured without any tracking loss, even in very dark or almost black areas, and in the surface texture of the wood bark or the marks left by the cut.
The texture has truly impressed me! The colors are vibrant and well-contrasted, and the level of detail is exceptionally high this time! What can I say, the 48MP resolution of the RGB camera makes a significant difference!
The scanning phase was really easy and fast, considering that I have never been a big fan of freehand scanning until now. But with this scanner, things change radically: finally, the scanning phases are no longer limited to the laboratory or the studio but can be performed practically anywhere, greatly expanding the possibilities for professional applications as well.
This was a quick and simple home experiment, just to warm up the engines…
I hope you find it interesting!

New showcase with the Revopoint MIRACO, scanning a marten skull.
The subject has dimensions of 92x63x50.
The model was created by combining two scans done with two different methods, namely continuous scanning on a turntable and single-shot scanning.
The turntable scan was performed at a rotation speed of 100s and 3 subject repositions.
The single-shot scan involved approximately 60 shots from different angles with the subject placed on a manually rotating platform.
The point clouds were merged in Advanced mode at 0.2mm and then combined in RevoStudio5.
It’s not possible to have a texture in this case because the model was generated from the fusion of multiple scans.
The model is perfect, with all the features of the original skull clearly visible.
These experiments were conducted in collaboration with a local natural science museum, and I will soon be able to share more related content.
I hope you find it interesting.

Pumpkin
Since we’re approaching Halloween, how could I resist scanning a mini pumpkin???
Easy and super quick!
The pumpkin was scanned in Near mode, high detail, feature tracking as a generic object.
The scanning was done manually with the subject placed on a manual turntable with two repositions to capture the underside as well.
The point cloud was merged in Advanced mode at 0.2mm directly on the MIRACO, and then the mesh was created at level 7, again directly on the scanner.
Once the texture was applied, the file was exported for viewing on RevoScan5 and for 3D printing the twin pumpkin…
Nothing could be easier.
The procedure was fast and simple, with all operations carried out independently directly on the MIRACO!

Boat Cockpit.
3D Scanning of a boat’s cockpit measuring 3100x1773x1172, for custom-made interior furnishings.
Scanning and file processing were done directly on the MIRACO scanner.
The scanning process was performed in Far mode, standard precision, and feature tracking mode, smoothly capturing the cockpit without any tracking issues.
The point cloud was merged in Advanced mode, and the mesh, after a simple process to isolate points, was created at level 7. Texture was not a priority for this model, as the main goal was to capture the dashboard model for design operations.
The operations were carried out quickly and easily, even surprising the shipyard staff (two of whom decided to take advantage of the Kickstarter offer after witnessing MIRACO in action :joy: ).
The model is excellent and requires no post-production processes for use in design and drawing programs.

Cattle Egret (Bubulcus).
In collaboration with the Natural Sciences Museum of Calimera (Italy), I had the opportunity to conduct experimental tests for scanning animals undergoing taxidermy processes and displayed in their exhibition.
This model is a scan of a Cattle Egret with dimensions of 230x303x350.
The scan was performed freehand in continuous mode, Near, high precision.
The point cloud was fused in Advanced mode at 0.18mm, and the mesh was created with a 0.18 mesh size.
As you can see, the model quality is exceptionally high, without the need for any cleaning or post-processing.
The textures are excellent, and the detail is astonishing.
I can only consider myself more than satisfied with these initial field experiments, conducted under far from optimal shooting conditions but excellently managed thanks to the extreme versatility of the MIRACO.
What do you think?

European Bee-eater (Merops Apister).
Continuing the collaboration with the Natural Sciences Museum of Calimera (Italy), here is a new specimen of bird undergoing the taxidermy process and part of their exhibition.
The subject in question has dimensions of 181x98x210 mm. The scan was carried out in Single Shot mode, Near, with high details.
Point fusion took place in Advanced mode at 0.18, and the mesh was created at level 7.
Once again, the model’s quality is exceptionally high, capturing details of the plumage even where it appeared less compact and uniform.
The texture quality is impressive, with astonishing details (you can even clearly read the handwritten label attached to the leg). It’s truly incredible how easily these operations can be carried out ‘in the field’ quickly and with exceptional results!
Undoubtedly, experimentation is opening up new possibilities, especially in the educational and outreach aspects of natural sciences…

Action Figure Sasuke Uchiha.

3D scanning with the Revopoint MIRACO of the Sasuke Uchiha action figure from the anime Naruto.
The action figure has dimensions of 158x172x164 mm without the stand.
The scanning was carried out in three separate phases with approximately 3 repositions of the scanner for each session.
Each session was performed in mixed mode: the first part in continuous mode, high precision, and feature tracking, and the second part with shots in single-shot mode to capture points not scanned in the first phase.
The point clouds were created in advanced mode at 0.15mm, and the models were merged on a PC, with the mesh created at level 6 with a mesh size of 0.15.
As you can see, once again, the model is flawless, with extremely high details and an exceptional level of cleanliness. The scanner successfully captured all the subtle details even in hard-to-reach areas such as the sleeves or the collar. The details of the belt, the sword sheath, or the shoe soles are fantastic.
I hope you enjoy it all, and I hope I’m not boring you with my nerdy side and passion for action figures…
