Hello from Tbilisi, Georgia.
I’m a car enthusiast with R33 skyline as my daily driver(no youtube channel, no instagram just enjoying driving with my friends). Between me and my friends we have 4 skylines and other cool enthusiast cars.
That said, I was searching for affordable and useful 3D scanner to restore and modify parts for my car when I came across Revopoint MINI, I chose mini because I wanted precision for scanning interior details. I purchased bundle with turntable and later added stabilizer with power bank. Calibration and testing went pretty easy and well. So I started my first real project:
I had to repair damaged door pocket of my R33, I decided to scan pocket and then 3D print it with Carbon filament. I managed to scan object after couple of tries using turntable, here are some pics of the process and finished result, I don’t have access to scanning spray so I used liquid chalk instead.
After showing this to my friend who happened to work with fiberglass/carbon/kevlar bodywork manufacturing he asked to help him recreating broken fender for Plymouth Prowler that he was working with. I had to scan undamaged fender and 3D print the mould which would be used to make fiberglass part. We had undamaged left fender and half of the right fender. I had to scan ~70/40cm fender with MINI I used chalk spray and markers which came with bundle and after may tries and 8 separate scans I finally managed to fuse a 3D model that I could work with.
Here is a fiberglass part applied to the actual vehicle. In both cases I used Revo Scan for scanning, Revo Studio for merging and optimizing meshes and 3DSMax for final touchups. As for the printer I have Anycubic Kobra Max.
MINI works great for me so far, picks up smallest details of the object. When I was doing fender there was no Range 3D scanner announced yet.
