I need a tool to create a scanning-type sensor. On STK you can only select a spinning-type sensor. I found one guy who made this sensor on STK but I don't know how.

The information below the linked video (from 2012) says the following, but there are no links provided:

This is an example HTML Utility that can be opened inside of AGI's STK (Systems Tool Kit) which allows users to enter some defining parameters to set up a scanning sensor profile. Selection criteria can define the overall Field of Regard of the scanning pattern, Azimuth/Elevation of the Field of Regard, Number of interior scanning rows, Field of View of the scanning sensor, Scanning Rate, and the scanning patterns (such as Top/Bottom, Bottom/Top, Left/Right, Right/Left).

This utility takes these parameters from the user and creates a native STK Sensor Pointing file for the sensor.

The video look and feel makes me think it was generated by AGI, so you could easily mail support@agi.com

The short answer, is that you cannot do it just out of the box. You have to generate pointing data external to STK and feed it in as a .sp file. The external data file could be generated with Matlab, python, or any other tool of your choice. AGI has a great example on their website which seems very similar to the one on the video:
