Other applications

The other applications where 3D scanning provides impressive benefits are multiple. They include heritage preservation, art and architecture, and multimedia.

Heritage preservation is where old objects meet new technologies.
As archaeologists and researchers, you have the delicate task of preserving our cultural heritage. Thanks to non-contact 3D scanning, you can efficiently scan rare objects and artifacts and digitally create 3D models with maximum quality and realism in order to study, restore, or duplicate them, document and classify them into catalogues, repositories, and databases, and share them among the researcher community.

Art and architecture are the areas where a vision can be presented in a realistic 3D model.
As artists, sculptors, and architects, you may be asked to scan art objects or elements of an architectural design and make changes digitally in order to see the outcome before reprinting them. Thanks to 3D scanning, you can now create 3D models, and then alter, reproduce, enlarge, or minimize them as needed as the project evolves.

Multimedia is the world where 3D computer graphics and visual effects (VFX) fuel new technologies.
As 3D computer artists—whether for video games, movies, or other military, training, scientific, or education purposes—you have to produce highly realistic simulations of the real world. You can create your content from scratch, but you can also incorporate real-life objects into your models to produce rich visual effects or lifelike 3D objects. Thanks to 3D scanning, this is now feasible with little additional effort.

Creaform Solution

With Creaform’s handheld 3D scanning technologies, you can now do things that were impossible to achieve with traditional tools. You can push your projects further and obtain superior results.

Easy-to-use, high-resolution, versatile, and portable 3D scanning tools and software are the solutions to fulfill your goals and overcome your challenges.

  • Simplicity:

    With plug-and-play devices and user-friendly interfaces, no expertise in 3D scanning is required. You simply hold the object, press the button, and scan.
  • High level of detail:

    With high-resolution cameras for geometry and color cameras for texture, you get very precise, high-quality 3D models specifically suited for your needs.
  • Versatility:

    With advanced laser and optical technologies and limitless scanning volumes, you can scan any part, regardless of size, shape, material, surface finish, and complexity.
  • Portability:

    Since it fits inside a small suitcase, you can bring your 3D scanning tool wherever the object, artifact, or element is and scan it without preparation.
