Texel, Inc.
Russian engineers from Texel, Inc revealed a 3D scanner capable of generating a full body scan in 30 seconds.

Texel is a Moscow-based startup company that managed to raise more than 50 million rubles. The company produces devices for 3D body scanning. These scanners can also capture any object of the similar size as long as it doesn’t fall from the rotating platform.

A full body scanning takes about 30 seconds. This is enough for the scanner to take 4,000 photos. It will take another minute to process the scan and prepare a 3D model. The machine works much faster compared to portable handheld devices.

Preparing the file for 3D printing will take another five minutes.

The machine can...
