Oceanographic Campus Library 3D Scanner

A guide to the use and best practices of the OCL's 3D scanner.

Booking and Usage Policies

The EinScan-SE Scanner may be reserved for class projects and assignments.  

Students and faculty may book appointments here:

    • Choose a time slot that works for you.  Please add your name in the main field in the Notes, include the names of all additional group members.
    • Don't procrastinate!  If you wait until the last week to scan, you may find that there are no time slots left.  This has happened in the past and students were not able to complete their scans.


The following policies apply to appointments:

  • Initial Scan Appointments are for 2-hour long sessions.  If it is your first time using the scanner, you should select Initial 3D Scan with Staff Training.
  • There is a 1-hour follow-up option for touching up your scanned object. 
  • Students may not schedule more than one consecutive appointment.
  • An appointment will be canceled if a student is 15 minutes late and someone else would like to use the scanner.
  • If there are no current appointments booked, scanner use is first-come, first-served.
