About 3D Scan Spray

To achieve optimal accuracy and results with 3D laser scanning it is often necessary to apply an anti-reflection coating. Helling 3D Scan Spray is especially designed for this purpose, providing a great solution for coverage.

Why choose Helling 3D Scan Spray from Laser Design?

  • Provides more uniform coverage using less spray material due to proprietary reflective qualities
  • Using less spray means this 3D scan spray is more cost effective than other commonly used reflective sprays!
  • Because of the fine grained structure of our spray it is possible to apply evenly layers of spray with minimal thickness (average particle size of 2,8 µm).
  • The Helling 3D Scan Spray is anti-glare and easily removable
  • 3D Scan spray is imported from Germany, and specifically designed for 3D scanning. As the leading spray used in Europe we are excited to be the exclusive North American distributor.


Is 3D Scan Spray Removable?

Yes, this spray is not only the least harmful of all sprays to your parts, it also gives the best coating too.

Small white particles coat the surface, and if the surface is porous like wood then the particles can get embedded. They don’t fuse or melt to the surface, so elbow grease and a brush can remove the particles.On non-porous surfaces like machined surface metals, the spray wipes cleanly off. Craggy surfaces like cast metal surfaces require more than just a rag to wipe over it, but a couple scrubs back and forth to make sure the cloth brushes through all the crags.

The Helling 3D Scan Spray is the optimal product for accurate laser technology and is available in a 400ml spray can. Order Your 3D Scan Spray today.

Is 3D Scan Spray Good for Use in the Dental Market?
This spray is ideal for dental applications especially for single tooth scanning/measuring for re-building (synthetics, synthetic coated models) and mold/wax figure models. Note: this spray is not safe for use inside a person’s mouth.  It is intended to be used only on inanimate objects.

Does this 3D scan spray work with white light 3D scans?

Yes, the 3D spray is suitable for use with all types of 3D scanners including white light systems. It dulls the surface of any shiny or reflective part.

What is the HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) code for spray?

The HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) code for spray is 3824.90.92.


How does the spray work with scan targets?
Best practice in using 3D Scan Spray with scan targets is to:
– Apply before or after a light coat of spray
– Wipe scan spray off the targets using a cotton swap, tissues, or your fingertip
– For parts that require a heavier coat of spray (like glass), apply the stickers first, then spray, and then wipe off the spray from the stickers.


Can 3DScanSpray be used on polished/coated optical surfaces? Whats is the cleaning process for such surfaces?
Yes, it can be used on polished/coated surfaces. You will need to be careful while cleaning due to low but existent abrasive properties of the product. We’d recommend washing the spray off under water and then using some kind of washing up liquid (if necessary).


Can all particles from the 3DScanSpray be removed from a part?
We are unable to guarantee a complete removal of all particles because it depends on the surface of the part. However, we have found that the spray is very low in detrimental material and a recent customer performed this Chemical Analysis PDF on a fine surface finish.


How well does this spray work on clear glass?
Our engineers advise that the spray works very well for clear glass. You just need to spray on a thick enough coating.


How does Helling 3D Scan Spray compare to dulling spray?
Dulling spray is designed for photography not for 3D scanning. Our experience is that a large quantity of dulling spray needs to be applied to achieve the desired effect for 3D scanning of shiny objects. The result is a coating that is way too thick / uneven and a process that is way too messy. Key differences are the uniformity of application and the particle size of the spray. The Helling spray is designed for demanding, high-accuracy applications where you want the minimum possible spray thickness applied as uniformly as possible.
