The power to innovate using 3D scanning

Taking an object from the physical world and bringing it into the digital world is a very important knowledge that students who aspire to become engineers must acquire. 3D scanning is therefore highly relevant for engineering students because they will be called upon to use it once working in the industry.



Benefit from the unprecedented speed, remarkable portability, and unrivalled accuracy for which Creaform 3D scanning solutions are renowned. Your ahead-of-the-curve research projects and teaching curricula will only be enhanced with our innovative and award-winning 3D scanners.

  • Selection of metrology-grade 3D measurement technologies from the Creaform lineup
  • Creaform ACADEMIA software covering reverse engineering and inspection
  • 2-year ACADEMIA Customer Care Plan
  • Optional accident coverage, warranty extension, and calibration services
  • E-learning courses for hardware and software
