Slick LCD screen

This multi-function and intuitive touchscreen gives you a brand-new way to interact with your peel 3d scanner. It can also be used as a distance meter to easily scan without looking at your computer.

Feel the difference with haptic communication

A world premiere for handheld 3D scanners, peel 3 features several recognizable vibration patterns to guide you as you scan narrow and hard-to-reach places without a direct line-of-sight. That’s real-time feedback at its best!

How it works

Easy as 1, 2, 3 - literally!

STEP 1 - Scan the Object
Both the object and scanner can move freely: you see what you’ve scanned and what you’ve missed in real time.

STEP 2 - Finalise Mesh
Clean up and align your 3D scans like a pro with tools you simply will not find in any other affordable solutions..

STEP 3 - Extract Entities & Surfaces

Use geometrical entities, surfaces, and cross-sections to define the valuable information about your object.

Got questions? We got answers!

Is this CAD software?
peel.CAD is a bridge to a CAD module; it is the missing link you will need to extract usable information from your scan and transfer it to CAD.
What file formats does it generate?
Entities and created surfaces can be exported in .stp, .igs, .csv and .dxf format.
What is the compatibility with different CAD software?
peel.CAD is perfect to work with SolidWorks, Autodesk, Inventor as well as other popular CAD platforms.
How does the licensing work? Yearly subscription? Payment? One-time purchase or?
peel.CAD is available as a permanent licence (it will basically work for life) or yearly basis (payment must be renewed on a yearly basis). Software updates are available by subscribing to the V.I.peel club.
Are the targets really required?
Targets are more of a complement; the scanner can use geometry and texture for positioning. They are highly recommended for flatter or smoother surfaces as well as when accuracy is important.
