How does a p40/30 compare to an rtc360 in speed and quality ?

I guess it depends on your needs. P40 = bulky, top notch data, S150/350 = ultra light weight, data still very good

2 days ago, I did a project of 180 coloured scans with S70 and Panocam in one extended day. Cant imagine I carry P40 for 12hrs.

It would be beneficial for us to know what the aim of the scanning is.

Architectural and mainly indoor?
Only industrial outdoor?
Engineering with high accuracy?
.......


Maybe have a look at the new faro premiums.

Depends on your use case.

But a used P40 makes a lot of sense.

Agreed, comes down very much to intended usage. If getting top notch data and keeping fit and strong are your goals, P40 is a great option :D . That said, buying a 2nd hand scanner can have other problems. You really need to look at its service history, transfer of any current guarantee or maintenance contract and ongoing service and maintenance options. Buying 2nd hand from a reputable scanner outlet is the better option here, where you have some kind of comeback in case of failure and an ongoing service relationship. Buying 2nd hand from an individual is potentially more problematic, particularly if you're importing from another region.
