I've just gotten hold of the MINI and did my first scans recently. Is it a plug-and-play scanner? No. But it is as close as one can get to a plug-and-play with this type of resolving power. I purchased the MINI after I wasn't getting the results I wanted from 3D photogrammetry. I needed something that was able to capture sub-millimeter detail efficiently, accurately, and quickly without breaking the bank. I am digitizing a large corpus of stone stamp seals created in late antique Western Asia, ranging in size from a few millimeters in diameter to a few centimeters, so I needed a scanner that could do both incredibly small objects just as accurately as coin-sized objects.
After doing some reading on the Revopoint forum on scanning best practices I plugged my MINI in for the first time and was able to get a decent scan of an object almost right away. I still have a lot of learning to do, and the learning curve is quite steep, but I know that after I use the MINI for a few weeks, getting to know the intricacies of 3D scanning with blue light, I will be able to achieve the results I am after. I will update this review with some more images and detailed review of the MINI after I can utilize it to its full potential.
For now, this scanner seriously deserves a 5/5. Even with my clumsy, inexperienced use of the MINI I was able to obtain decent results. I can't wait to see what it will be like when I can use the scanner to its full potential.
