The ExaScan is able to scan most materials as long as they are not reflective or highly polished surfaces, however this can be overcome by painting with matt based paint or applying talc like powder to dull the surface.

Benefits of the EXA SCAN HANDY 3D SCANNER
The ExaScan uses a high resolution camera to capture its detail. The ExaScan picks up positional information from the surface of an object, registering the location of points in space, so that a 3-D model of a form can be reconstructed. It makes 25,000 measurements per second at a resolution of .05mm. This makes it capable of use in parts inspection, Finite Element Analysis, and other demanding applications as well as useful for digitizing various objects with more detail.
