3D FAQ's

1. What is a MacJac 3D Scanner?

The MacJac 3D Scanner is a full-body, no contact, 3D body Scanner and combined measurement system. It detects over 100 landmark points and takes more than 60 body measurements, including circumferences, heights, lengths, volumes and surface area.

2. How does it scan my body?

The MacJac 3D Scanner uses infrared depth sensor technology similar to the devices used with home interactive video game systems, to map the surface of the scan subject. The sensors are positioned at six angles and seven different heights around the body to get full coverage in less than six seconds. The software then converts the sensor data to a 3D image of the subject from which measurements can be obtained and displayed.

3. Do I need to take off my clothes to be scanned?

The MacJac 3D Scanner is a surface scanner, so there is no requirement to remove clothing.  It can’t see through your clothes like an airport. For those interested solely in body measurements, you can be scanned in your undergarments if they are form-fitting or a leotard, gym clothes or even a bathing suit.

5. Describe the scanning process for me. What should I expect?

The MacJac 3D scanning process is fast, safe, and private. You will enter a private enclosure attached to the scanner. Upon entering the scan area, you will find footprints to stand on and a handle to hold. The scanner operator will start the scanner and you will hear audio instructions to remain still while the scan is in progress. Stand still for a few short seconds and you’re done!

6. What is the purpose of the handle in the scanner?

The handle helps the scan subject to stand motionless during the scanning process. Its only a few seconds but our experience in 3D scanning has shown that the handle helps limit unintentional body swaying during the scan process.
