How to use Amazon’s free 3D scanners
The world’s biggest online retailer has unveiled a free 3-D scanning service, which allows shoppers to scan and print clothes or bags at home.
Amazon will offer the service to its users at the end of June.
The service allows shoppers who are not part of the Amazon Prime program to scan products at home or at retail stores to produce a digital photo that can be viewed and downloaded by others.
Amazon has a reputation for making its customers feel as though they are part of a big, global company, and the new service will offer that same feeling of belonging, according to co-founder Jeff Bezos.
The service, called Free 3D, allows shoppers the option to scan items and create a 3-dimensional image of the item, and also to print out the scan and place it in a reusable, durable storage box.
The item can then be placed in a bag or wallet, or sent home with a digital gift card.
Users can scan and save the image in any of the following ways:A person can select one of three categories of 3D images: 1.
A photo of a product or a product part.
A 3D image of a person or a person’s face.
A digital photo of an object or a object part.
A person’s 3D photo can be scanned with the Free 3 D scanner, or a 2D scan can be created.
The 3D scan will be sent to Amazon’s servers and will be uploaded to the site’s website within 24 hours.
The scan can also be sent with a printout to a computer that will then upload the image to Amazon.
The printout can be sent as a PDF file or scanned with an image scanner such as Amazon’s Kindle 3D Scanner.
