HandyScan 3D Scanner

The HandySCAN 3D handheld scanners of new generation have been optimized to meet the needs of product development and engineering professionals on the lookout for the most effective and reliableway to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects.

Creaform’s flagship metrology-grade scanners underwent a complete re-engineering, building on its core assets. They are now more portable and faster at delivering accurate and high resolution 3D scans compared to the previous generation, while remaining overly simple to use.

Other Applications

• Arts and architecture: Artists, sculptors and architects can scan art objects or elements of an architectural design. They then digitally make design changes and then reprint them.

• Education and research: Professors use 3D scanners and 3D printers to better teach students in industrial design, mechanical design, engineering, and a variety of other fields. Researchers can leverage 3D scanning and printing to analyze physical objects. More Info >>

• Heritage preservation: Archaeologists and researchers scan rare objects and artefacts for archiving and research - and print 3D models for exhibits.

• Healthcare: The medical field uses 3D scanners to scan the human body for research. Companies also use scan data to develop better adapted equipment for the human body. 

• Multimedia: 3D computer artists - whether for video games or other military, training, scientific or education purposes - use 3D scanning to produce highly realistic simulations.

These are just some of the ways organizations are using 3D scanning and 3D printing today.

With such infinite possibilities, only time will tell what other amazing applications will arise!

New Features
