MetraSCAN 3D

Discover the fastest and most accurate 3D scanner and portable CMM for shop floor environments


Speed and accuracy combined with versatility


Speed and accuracy combined with versatility

The MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanner line-up is specifically designed for manufacturing and metrology professionals who do not want to compromise on quality or efficiency. It can withstand any production environment, including shop floor vibrations, part movements and environmental instability—all while accelerating 3D measurement workflows. This optical CMM scanner has been engineered to perform highly accurate and repeatable metrology-grade measurements and 3D geometrical surface inspections.

When paired with the HandyPROBE, Creaform’s handheld optical coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) with probing capabilities, users can also harness the power of both 3D scanning and probing for complete, end-to-end inspection processes.

    30 blue laser lines
  • Ultra-quick setup
    No warm-up time; users can be up-and-running in less than 5 minutes
  • 360° Magnetic Targets
    For quick and easy setups
    Optimized visibility for dynamic tracking

Enhanced Accuracy on Large Parts

The AVE feature allows for automatic acquisition volume extension only by moving the C-Track, without requiring extra measurements. With its advanced integrated photogrammetry and scaling algorithms, the MetraSCAN 3D ensures more accurate, repeatable, and human-error-free measurements on large parts.

  • Accuracy
    0.025 mm (0.0009 in)
  • Automatic Volume Extension
    0.025mm + 0.015mm/m (0.0009in + 0.00018in/ft)
  • Reliable acceptance tests
    Based on VDI/VDE 2634 Part 3 standard
    Based on ISO 10360 standard
    ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 accredited laboratory
  • Shop floor accuracy with dynamic referencing
    Measurement accuracy insensitive to environmental instabilities
    High resolution
    Measures all types of complex and highly detailed parts

Unmatched versatility

Highly versatile, the MetraSCAN 3D can be used to scan various part sizes and surface finishes in real time—all with the same device.

With its extendable measurement volume, parts of any shape, complexity, and geometry can be measured easily without loss in accuracy or requiring leapfrog.

  • Blue laser technology
    Ideal for shiny and reflective surfaces
  • Large and easily extendable measurement volume
    Wider than other portable CMMs
    No leapfrog required
    Integrated photogrammetry
  • Optional HandyPROBE
    Combination of both 3D scanning and probing
    No targets required
  • New Setup Assistance Tools
    Guidance volume display
    High-level setup diagnostics
