3dp_3dmakerjet_logoFull body-dimensionsd 3D scanners are becoming one of the additional sought-after 3D scanning applications in the industry. So far there are only a tiny number of human-dimensionsd 3D scanners on the market to the public, but which number is expected to quickly increase in the coming years. Primarily these scanners can be utilized to generate 3D avatars which can be utilized for online shopping and virtual clothes fitting, and retailer stores throughout the country are expected to begin offering scanning booths for this purpose. Today many 3D scanning booths are dimensionsable, circular booths fitted with dozens of cameras or dimensionsable rotating camera rigs, but a few companies are attempting to shrink which down into a additional manageable dimensions.
