MetraSCAN 3D


The MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanner line-up is specifically designed for manufacturing and metrology professionals who do not want to compromise on quality or efficiency. It can withstand any production environment, including shop floor vibrations, part movements and environmental instability – all while accelerating 3D measurement workflows. This optical CMM scanner has been engineered to perform highly accurate and repeatable metrology-grade measurements and 3D geometrical surface inspections.

Speed and accuracy combined with versatility

When paired with the HandyPROBE, Creaform’s handheld optical coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) with probing capabilities, users can also harness the power of both 3D scanning and probing for complete, end-to-end inspection processes.

Accuracy of 0.025mm

ISO 17025

Large Scanning Area

Scan-to-Mesh in seconds

Patented Technology

Faster 3D scanning

The MetraSCAN 3D features 15 laser crosses and a high measurement rate to accelerate 3D scanning processes. Thanks to quick setup and onboarding, real-time scans and ready-to-use files, your 3D scanning workflow will never have been faster.

• High measurement rate
1,800,000 measurements/second
• Large scanning area for all types of parts
15 laser crosses
• Ultra-quick setup
No warm-up time; users can be up-and-running in less than 5 minutes

Impressive shop floor accuracy

Free from any rigid measurement setup requirements, the MetraSCAN 3D is designed specifically for use on shop floors. It delivers accurate results, regardless of the measurement setup quality and user experience level. Thanks to the C-TrackTM optical tracker that enables dynamic referencing, the scanner, the part and the optical tracker can move during inspection and still provide accurate measurements.
