Creaform ACADEMIA’s 3D scanning solutions help researchers and teachers in Czech colleges

For years, Creaform has been dedicated to the educational sector, providing advanced 3D scanning solutions and software to enable researchers to conduct advanced research and teachers to train the engineers and designers of tomorrow.

What is Creaform ACADEMIA?

Creaform ACADEMIA, the company’s affordable educational solution suite, includes a wide range of 3D measurement technologies for many different fields of learning, including science and engineering, applied sciences, industrial design, natural sciences, archaeology, as well as research projects and university service centres.

For teachers, Creaform ACADEMIA features easy-to-use tools and didactic material to allow students to better understand metrology principles and get valuable hands-on experience with professional-grade ACADEMIA 3D scanners. ACADEMIA software is also available to extensively teach about reverse engineering and inspection methods.

For researchers, Creaform ACADEMIA provides powerful metrology-grade 3D measurement technologies (3D scanners or portable CMMs) and other complimentary add-ons for industrial research projects. As with the teaching offer, Creaform ACADEMIA for researchers is also comprised of Creaform’s reverse engineering and inspection software modules.

Creaform ACADEMIA takes on the world of research and education in the Czech Republic

3D Scan, one of Creaform’s strategic partners in Europe, has been making impressive inroads with 3D measurement technologies in educational institutions and research centres across the Czech Republic. Multiple projects have been completed or are currently underway with many of Creaform ACADEMIA solutions. Read on to learn about these amazing projects!

Teaching 3D scanning and metrology to Czech students

  • SPŠ,SOŠ a SOU, a vocational school located in Czech city of Hradec Králové, recently taught students how to use the ACADEMIA 10 3D scanner, along with VXmodel software, to scan students’ statuettes in order to make a copy of them using 3D printers.
