How it works

Once placed flat on your desired surface, the Nix Mini blocks out all ambient light from its internal high precision sensor. This allows for an accurate scan in any environment, from direct sunlight to total darkness.

Our finely calibrated, broad spectrum, white LED light source is then shone down to the measurement surface at a 45 degree angle. This industry standard approach helps to reduce errors that can be introduced with different material gloss levels.

The material’s diffuse light is then collected from the scanned surface into the Nix Mini’s internal sensor array.

The results of the scan are instantly transmitted to your smart device via Bluetooth where the data is converted for your specific workflow.
