List of Depth Cameras Supported by Dot3D

The following cameras are fully supported for 3D scanning in Dot3D Pro, Dot3D X, or Dot3D Lite:

1.
DPI-10 (complete hardware kit with built-in, DP-Calibrated Carmine 1.082 sensor) - $2500 USD
     or DPI-X (smaller, mountable, but less rugged/complete version of DPI camera kit) - $995 USD
  1. 0.5-3.7 m range (1.5-12 ft). Recommended for room-scale indoor scanning in varied environments.
  2. Doesn't work in direct sunlight. Will work outdoors in shaded/overcast/morning/evening conditions.
  3. Most complete data capture indoors (performs well even with ambient lighting, dark blacks, metals).
  4. The DPI-10 is only compatible with Microsoft Surface Go or Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 tablets.*
2. DPI-10SR (complete hardware kit with built-in, DP-Calibrated Carmine 1.09 sensor) - $2500 USD
     or DPI-XSR (smaller, mountable, but less rugged/complete version of DPI-SR camera kit) - $995 USD
  1. 0.25-2.0 m range (0.75-6.5 ft). Recommended for indoor scanning equipment/objects/tight spaces.
  2. Best option for capturing discrete details at close range. Not ideal for room-scale scanning.
  3. Doesn't work in direct sunlight. Will work outdoors in shaded/overcast/morning/evening conditions.
  4. The DPI-10SR is only compatible with Microsoft Surface Go or Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 tablets.*
3. Intel® RealSense™ D455 Depth Camera - $399/$795 USD (from Intel / from DP with custom calibration & magnetic mounting)
  1. 0.33-4.2 m range (1-14 ft). Recommended option for outdoor scanning, or combined indoor/outdoor scanning.
  2. Will also work indoors. However, the data quality/accuracy is typically inferior to other options.
  3. Longer range and improved performance over its predecessors (D415, D435, D35i).
  4. Includes mounting kit, USB C-to-C cable, and custom calibration if ordered from DotProduct ($595).
  5. Compatible with wide range of Windows/Android tablets/phones. USB 3.0+ port/cable required.
  6. Also compatible with DPI-10 and DPI-10SR hardware kits.
4. Intel® RealSense™ D415 Depth Camera - $259 (from Intel)
  1. 0.5-3.0 m range (2-10 ft). Most affordable option for scanning indoors or out.
  2. Delivers the most accurate colors in the resulting data, even in direct sunlight.
  3. Will also work indoors. However, the data quality/accuracy is typically inferior to other options.
  4. Compatible with wide range of Windows/Android tablets/phones. USB 3.0+ port/cable required.
  5. Also compatible with DPI-10 and DPI-10SR hardware kits.
5. Intel® RealSense™ D435 / D435i Depth Cameras
  1. Not recommended over the other options (DPI/D455/L515/D415) for any 3D scanning purposes.
  2. Compatible with wide range of Windows/Android tablets/phones. USB 3.0+ port/cable required.
6.  Intel® RealSense™ L515 LiDAR Camera - $589 USD (from Intel while available)
      *While the L515 LiDAR Camera is still supported, its production HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED BY INTEL. For this reason it is not recommended.*
  1. 0.5-6.0 m range (1.5-20 ft). Longest range option for indoor scanning when minimal ambient light.
  2. Does not work in direct sunlight. Also sensitive to ambient lighting (window light).
  3. Not ideal for dark surfaces (black/gray). Challenging lighting/surfaces can limit the range.
  4. Includes magnetic mounting kit and approved USB C-to-C cable if ordered from DotProduct ($495).
  5. Compatible with wide range of Windows/Android tablets/phones. USB 3.0+ port/cable required.
  6. Also compatible with DPI-10 and DPI-10SR hardware kits.

*Past models (DPI-8, DPI-8X, DPI-8S) also support the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2S4, and NVIDIA SHIELD tablets.
