About this project
Using the latest 3D technology Smart 3D Ltd has created Pixelio. Pixelio is an innovative, modern and easy to use 3D scanner that can be used by everyone!
Until now, the market has lacked a good and low cost device for 3D printer users that allows to copy objects, make spare parts, or archive collections in the form of 3D files.
Smart 3D Ltd team creates a device that fill this gap. The company also wanted to add some simple and clever features to their small devices. That is why Pixelio – the first baby of Smart 3D became also a device that helps to improve your photos or even movies.
Pixelio will introduce you to a new dimension in 3D photography.
With Pixelio scanner you can enjoy high-tech features for a reasonable price. All you need is a smartphone or gopro camera.
Everyone will find Pixelio useful!
Affordable and user-friendly it should satisfy the most demanding photographers and 3D printer users. Pixelio does not have its own optics as for that purpose, it uses your smartphone camera and a free app (eg. 123D Catch). That makes it even more accessible.
Featuring a wide range of functionality Pixelio will be perfect for:
• sellers on eBay, other auction sites
• bloggers and vloggers
• real estate developers
• architects, engineers etc.
• or even tourists who want to take the best panoramic pictures.
With Pixelio you can scan any object you like in an easy and intuitive way. 3D model can be printed directly using your 3D printer. The scan is of high quality and it captures fine detail (which is not possible with hand-held scanners). Thanks to a universal holder it can be connected to any smartphone.
Pixelio is a simple and fast way to create amazing 360 degree photos! This option will particularly appeal to you if you sell on the Internet, write a blog or deal with professional product photography. The process of creating pictures is automatic. 360 degree photos can be saved to MP4 or GIF format.
Fantastic panoramas taken with Pixelio scanner are characterized with precise, steady image (no movements) and high resolution (depending on what smartphone you are using the photo quality can be excellent). To meet the needs of the most demanding photographers Pixelio allows you to set intervals, speed of the arm movement and many other parameters. The device timer can be programmed for any time you like. This function will help you to create incredible timelapse shots.
Pixelio also has a tripod mount so it can be easily attached to any tripod. Pixelio can be connected not only to smartphone, but also to a full HD GoPro-type camera so your photos and videos can become even better.

Better if you watch it on your smartphone. It takes only 2 minutes to create it and the cost is pretty low
Timelapse movies are made by taking hundreds of photos of one scene (for example the sunset or sunrise). It looks quite effective but Pixelio gives you even more! Pixelio has a buil-in feature that allows to move a camera/mobile phone (placed in the holder) centimiters by centimiters and triggering the shutter every few seconds, minutes or hours – as you set it. It gives you possibility to create incredible panoramic time-laps video. Pixelio allows for panning with excellent precision at the speed you set. Pixelio costs much less than other devices for panning and time-lapse movies and for its price offers offers so much more.
Smart 3D has created imitation of a human finger, or more specifically, its resistive capacity, so Pixelio works easy. For that purpose we had used patented Virtual Finger technology with unique material with 0.3% of graphene. Virtual Finger is used to activate the shutter release button in applications that do not have Bluetooth support or in mobile phones that do not support Bluetooth 4.0. With Virtual Finger you can release the shutter at the moment set on Pixelio in a completely automatic way. Thanks to that function you do not need to manually start the filming process.
Each of us is a part of the creative process at Smart 3d Ltd. You will not find a “boss” or a “Mr-know-it-all product manager”.
At Smart 3d, everyone does what they do best, but we do it together. We listen, we encourage participation and constructive criticism and we end up building great things together. We scrape all hierarchy and bureaucracy and focus on the beauty of developing the products.
What makes us different is that we're not working, we create.
Risks and challenges
We obviously realize that there are always threats to every project. We also know, that the creation of efficient and working software for 3D scanning doesn’t happened accidentally. It requires years of hard work and lots of testing.
Therefore, not to reinvent the wheel again, we based our project on software that already exists and working.
We directed our whole creative energy towards creating one device, which in a simple and reliable way use applications available on the market, eliminating the imperfection of the human hand.
Pixelio have now been fully tested. We will begin productions as soon as we reach our financial goal.
We will proceed with ordering injection molds which will be the most expensive part of the production.
All other aspects of production like electronic parts, production site and our experienced team members are now in place.
We are European company and whole production process from design to final assembly of Pixelio will be made in European Union.
Please, we want You to part of our great project, Pixelio is the beginning.
