Recently, a Kickstarter campaign for Revopoint POP 3D scanner has raised more than US$2 million from more than 5,700 backers as of press time. It makes Revopoint POP a "history-making 3D scanner" both in terms of the amount of money raised and the number of backers. Of course, Revopoint POP is not the first 3D scanner to be successfully funded through a crowdfunding platform. Historically, outstanding results included C$651,091 for PeachyPrinter in 2016 and US$599,925 for Eora3D in 2018. To add to it, the crowdfunding campaign for Revopoint POP is not over yet, which means the support and trust from people across the globe will keep growing stronger.

POP is a consumer-grade high-precision 3D scanner developed by experts at Revopoint from Shenzhen. Compared to existing products in the market, POP has the advantages of high precision and low power consumption while offering an affordable price. Simultaneously, it has multi-terminal coverage, i.e., it can be used with mobile phones, notebooks, or computers, making it user-friendly.
As a representative revolutionary technology in the manufacturing field, 3D printing has been gradually receiving more attention. Since the invention of affordable household 3D printers, millions of them have entered consumers' homes every year and have become scorching property. However, the challenging part for 3D printing remains to be 3D modeling. Therefore, precise 3D scanning is a perfect starting point for 3D printing creativity. Besides, 3D scanners can also be used for customized product design, cultural relic conservation, VR/AR, and other applications. Hence an affordable, precise, and handy 3D scanner like Revopoint POP could very well be the next big thing.
Mr. Hassan Iftikhar, a product design researcher from the School of Design, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, recently designed customized facial personal protective gear for protection during the COVID-19 pandemic, using 3D scans acquired from the POP scanner. This is one of the best examples of how 3D scanners like POP can address everyday challenges using 3D scanning technology.
As the age of 3D printer has arrived, the future of 3D scanners is coming. Such a grand success of this crowdfunding campaign may well pave the road for promoting similar 3D scanners. I believe that ordinary consumers like you and me will get to know shortly.
