3D Scanning Services

Professional CAD Systems provides 3D scanning, reverse engineering and inspection services.

We can take your part and transform it into a 3D CAD model.

3D Scanning Locations

We can provide our Portable 3D Laser Scanning Service wherever you are in NZ. Fast and accurate scanning of parts, processes and equipment on site at your facility.


You can send the parts through to be scanned at our office in Hamilton.

Why use 3D Scanners?

  • You need to measure very complex parts

    3D scanners measure every surface at millions of points, making it easy to measure very complex shapes.

  • You need to remeasure parts you don’t have

    When an object is 3D scanned it creates a complete digital record that can be re-measured at any time.

  • You need to measure things in difficult areas

    Creaforms portable scanner and software range are easy to setup and use in any environment.

3D Scanning Applications

Bridging Physical & Digital Worlds

3D Scanners are used to get complete or partial 3D measurements of any physical real-world part or object so that they can be remodelled or analysed for:

• Reverse Engineering of Existing Parts

• Quality Control and Inspection

• Parametric 3D Modelling

• Preparation for Prototyping

• 3D Scanning for Product Libraries

• 3D Achieving

3D Scanning Industries

• Manufacturing

• Industrial Design

• Healthcare

• Film & Stage

• Gaming & Virtual Reality

• Heritage Preservation

3D Scanning Accuracy

The scan data acquired is very high resolution and highly accurate.

0.025 mm (0.0009 in)

Volumetric Accuracy

0.020 mm + 0.040 mm/m
(0.0008 in + 0.0005 in/ft)

Measurement Resolution

0.025 mm (0.0009 in)

Measurement Rate

1,300,000 measurements/s

Part size range

0.05 – 7m (0.15 – 23 ft)

3D Rendering & Visualisation Services

Professional CAD Systems offers architectural rendering - photorealistic images or interactive virtual experiences to showcase to owners and potential buyers what the final design will look like.

3D Architectural Renders

3D Rendered Images

Our team has extensive experience in creating exterior and interior 3D architectural render to showcase design concepts. Help sell your unbuilt property or concept idea with a quality photorealistic or stylised image.

Interactive/VR Walkthroughs

Virtual Reality (VR) is a hot topic in architecture and for good reason. Many companies are experimenting with virtual reality in architecture design and are already using it in their daily business. A VR architectural presentation provides you with a full 360 view – enabling you to get a feeling for space and design and perceive the actual scale of a project.

With virtual reality, you create an immersive 3D experience that touches clients emotionally and presents architectural ideas in the best way possible. Since everyone gets to engage and experience a model in a life-like simulation, it‘s easier to discuss details that may not be so easy to see and comprehend in another format. It’s simple to use as well – just one click, and the VR headset will start displaying your model, allowing everyone to experience a building before it’s built.

Flyover/Simulation Videos

3D walkthrough and 3D flyover animations are very effective for the companies that want to showcase their building or engineering projects in an accurate, photorealistic and eye catching manner.

Our team has extensive experience in creating accurate 3D walkthrough and 3D flyover animations. We can produce photorealistic 3D walkthroughs and 3D flyovers to showcase a realistic vision.

Sun/Light Studies

Get a glimpse of how the sun and other light interacts with your building project. This can help achieve ideal lighting conditions so that demands are decreased significantly for electrical lighting and greater environmental comfort is reached because more occupants are experiencing natural light.

Professional CAD Systems make the process of getting your 3D render or animation as simple and as fast as possible.


The more info you can supply us, the faster and cheaper the process will be. We will require at least a 2D floor plan along with any landscaping plans, materials & colour schemes you may have chosen for your project.


We use all the info you provide us to create a 3D model of your design. At this stage we will send you an initial draft and you will have the opportunity to review the concept and make any adjustments.


We add finer details to the model and any  other final changes you may want, then provide you with a final high resolution image, simulation video, or bim 360° file for you to explore.
