It is a portable scanner of dimensions 178x129x330 mm and able to scan objects with a precision of 0,9mm to 50 cm distance. The Sense is designed to be handheld vertically using the grip, but it is also possible to mount the device on a tripod thanks to the designated mounting hole on the bottom.

Sense 3D scanner features
The Sense 3D scanner by Cubify was designed as a low cost scanning solution. This portable 3D scanner uses the structured light technology. Sense is capable of producing textured /colored 3D scans from a variety of subjects that includes people and objects not exceeding the specified dimensions. This scanner is a good option for scanning for 3D printing process initiations or simple demonstrations. However, since this Sense is a rather low-cost option, the user probably should not expect to achieve outstanding results or produce extremely accurate scans.
