Conventional 3D scanners lack built-in data processing chips and require a PC connection to function. They are difficult to move when scanning large objects and are virtually impossible to use outdoors. In fact, you can easily use our 3D scanner app - Connect by 3DMakerpro - to achieve mobile scanning with Mole and Lynx scanners. The scan data can be easily edited and used for various purposes. With Connect, 3D scanning has never been easier, more efficient, and more versatile. Want to know how to 3D scan on Mac, iPad, and Android devices? Read on.How to Achieve Mobile Scanning
How to Achieve Mobile Scanning
To achieve mobile scanning, a high-power processing chip needs to be attached to the scanner. 3DMakerpro has launched Connect, a cloud-based platform that can process point cloud data and store it on smartphones. Compared to PC connections, Connect can unleash 95% of the scanner's performance and provide excellent mobile scanning capabilities. The 3DMakerpro Connect currently supports the Mole and Lynx scanners.
Connecting to Connect
Connect requires a mobile power source with a minimum specification of 12V PD 22.5W Type-C interface. The power cable, mobile cable, and device cable need to be connected to Connect as shown in the images above. Both the desktop and mobile versions of JMStudio need to be downloaded from here.
Once the scanner is connected to the PC, open JMStudio Desktop and go to "File," then click on "Import _calib." The scanner's QR code needs to be scanned to successfully connect and start scanning.

7. After the data transfer is over, you can work with your scanned data on the desktop. Well done, the entire steps to connect have been completed.
Exporting the Scan Data
After the scan data is collected, it needs to be exported into JMStudio Desktop for further editing. You must ensure that the PC and smartphone are connected to the same WiFi, the firewall is disabled, and the network is set to private. Open JMStudio Desktop and click on "Import from Mobile," then select the exported file from JMStudio Mobile and tap on the "Export" button. Scan the QR code generated on the desktop, and the data transfer will be completed.
