Highly versatile, they can be used for a wide range of applications, helping professionals throughout the entire product development process.

Easy. Fast. Reliable. Introducing the Go!SCAN 3D™ scanners.

Go!SCAN 20

Go!SCAN 20

Thanks to its increased resolution, the Go!SCAN 20 is perfectly suited for scanning small parts with intricate details.

Go!SCAN 50

HandySCAN 300

with its larger field of view, the Go!SCAN 50 model is ideal for scanning medium to large objects quickly and effortlessly.


  • Hybrid positioning: uses the parts’ natural geometry and color.
  • Point-and-shoot: no need to prepare parts. Just go!
  • User-friendly: no experience required, up-and-running in minutes.
  • Scan in color: allows for seamless capture of high-quality geometry and colors simultaneously.
  • Real-time visualization: look at the computer screen to see what you are doing and what is left to be done.


  • Stand-alone device: the part is the reference, no external positioning system needed.
  • On-the-go scanning: fits into a carry-on case, so you can use it both in-house or on site.
  • Lightweight and small: weighs under 1 kg (2.2 lb.), can reach confined areas. Fits into a carry-on.


  • Fast: typical objects are scanned in 5 minutes or less.
  • High measurement rate: capture large amount of 3D data for faster scanning.
  • Automatic mesh output: ready-to-use files (geometry and color), right as you complete acquisition.
  • Quick workflow integration: usable scan files can be imported into RE/CAD/3D printing software without post-processing.


  • Professionnal-grade measurements: accuracy of up to 0.1 mm (0.004 in.) and resolution of up to 0.1 mm (0.004 in.).
  • Built-in intelligence: ensures that 3D data is high-quality and accurate.
  • Optional targets: possible to use targets to compensate for an object’s lack of positioning information.
  • No rigid setup required: both the part and the scanner can be moved during scanning.


VXelements : Creaform’s 3D software platform

The Go!SCAN 3D scanners come with VXelements, a fully integrated 3D software platform that powers our entire fleet of 3D scanning and measurement technologies. It gathers all the essential elements and tools into a user-friendly, simplified and sleek working environment. Its real-time visualization provides a simple, enjoyable scanning experience.

An optimized scan file is automatically created and available upon completion of the data acquisition step, which contributes to greatly shorten your part inspection or design process.

VXscan: Scan Software Module

VXscan is entirely dedicated to the acquisition and optimization of 3D scanning data. It delivers high performance for that specific task, yet it is simple and user-friendly enough to suit any user's experience level.

  • User-friendly interface: VXelements was designed to simplify the whole scanning process to its essential core, through a powerful and simple process.
  • Surface optimization algorithm: avoids the creation of multiple scan layers and ensures a more accurate mesh without any post-treatment;
  • Direct mesh output: an optimized mesh can be exported in all standard formats, right as you complete acquisition. No complicated alignment or point cloud processing needed;
  • No limitation to the scan resolution: you simply need to input a resolution value, independent from the size of the scanned object. Resolution can be changed at any time before/after the scan;
  • Real-time visualization: the user can view the 3D surface as the object is being scanned;
  • Scan results enhancement: hole filling, smart decimation, boundary filters, etc.

VXmodel: Scan-to-CAD software module

VXmodel is a post-treatment software that directly integrates into VXelements and seamlessly allows to finalize 3D scan data for use directly in any CAD or 3D printing software. VXmodel provides the simplest and fastest path from 3D scans to your CAD or additive manufacturing workflow.
