Creaform’s mission is to develop, manufacture and market cutting edge portable 3D measurement and analysis technologies that increase productivity. Through its expertise and the passion and commitment of its employees, Creaform helps companies from the manufacturing industry to seamlessly create, simulate, verify, and collaborate in 3D, significantly enhancing their turnaround times and profitability.

Whether you need to inspect a printed part to CAD, reverse engineer or start a new design from an existing part, Creaform’s latest 3D scanners offers all the resolution and accuracy needed in the additive manufacturing processes. With the instant mesh feature, the generated mesh is already lightened and processed, ready to be seamlessly integrated into your preferred reverse engineering, CAD, or 3D printing software. Because your focus must be on your product and expertise, Creaform strives to develop efficient yet user friendly hardware and software packages so you will become scanning experts in hours, not weeks. Where time to market is a huge factor, Creaform’s products combined with additive manufacturing streamlines the process and cuts in the developments calendar.

Featured Technology

Portable and Automated 3D Measurement Technologies

Creaform’s 3D scanning and probing technologies—handheld or automated—enable QC and QA engineers and managers to measure the dimensions and validate the quality of manufactured parts as well as find the root cause of issues detected during inspections.

Accurate, fast, portable, and versatile metrology tools are the solutions to fulfill your goals and overcome your challenges.

Accuracy: With accurate, high-resolution, and repeatable results, regardless of the measurement setup quality, environmental instabilities, and user experience, the measurement quality has never been better.

Speed: With the highest measurement rate and easy setup, the scan-to-results process occurs in minutes, saving precious acquisition and analysis time.

Portability: With dynamic referencing, in which both the part and the instrument can move freely while measuring, inspections can occur in diverse environmental conditions without affecting performance.

Versatility: With advanced optical and laser technologies and limitless scanning volumes, portable 3D scanners can inspect any part, regardless of size, shape, material, surface finish, and complexity.

HandySCAN 3D


The HandySCAN 3D line-up is the reference in portable metrology grade 3D scanners. Now in its 3rd generation, it is optimized to meet the needs of designers, manufacturers and metrology professionals looking for the most effective and reliable way to acquire accurate 3D measurements of physical objects anywhere.

  • Achieve sub-thou accuracy and high resolution without sacrificing ultra-portability.
  • Don’t lose accuracy when you take metrology out of the lab into the field.
  • Save time by bringing the scanner to the part rather than transporting parts.
  • No need to powder shiny surfaces.
  • Easy to operate with minimal training.

This fast and versatile patented handheld 3D scanner is easy-to-use and generates highly accurate and repeatable results—even in difficult environments and with complex surfaces and shiny surfaces.

  • Analyze damage, corrosion and wear.
  • Digitally archive and reproduce designs of legacy parts.
  • Send Scans to your 3D Printer.
  • Qualify production parts.
  • Troubleshoot manufacturing problems.
