    It's a 2006 Triumph but you're probably wanting to know which scanner.

    The scanner is a revopoint which is getting good reviews. I was waiting for the einstar to port to OSX and gave up. I won't buy a PC to run a scanner, that won't ever happen.

    The revopoint still runs intel code on a OSX but it's fine. It has many operational modes, I prefer to scan and capture on my laptop using the wifi hookup so there's no cable. In the end, the data is on your computer and you don't have to transfer it.

    Is it better than the einstar? I have no idea. The resolution is so much better than my old scanner from 10 years ago. If you're designing something, I'd still have a pair of calipers handy.
