Professional Portable 3D Scanners

Since 2002, Creaform has developed a selection of highly accurate industrial 3D scanners.

Our scanners have been designed to accelerate the time-to-market with your product development workflows, all while helping you meet your quality control requirements in non-contact 3D measurements. Discover how our 3D scanners can help you gain a competitive edge, cut the time and costs associated with product development, and optimize production processes.


VXmodel: Scan-to-CAD post-treatment Software

Creaform’s VXmodel software directly integrates into VXelements and seamlessly allows to finalize 3D scan data for use directly in any CAD or 3D printing software. A great addition to any Creaform 3D scanner, VXmodel is simple, yet powerful: it only includes the features necessary to complement your CAD software. No extra bells and whistles you don’t need!

Creaform 3D scanners are the reference tools for all stages of product lifecycle management



Where the ideas take shape

  • Analyze the environment of the object as well as competitive products.
  • Draw the first sketches in CAD software.
  • Validate the concept designs with prototypes until the development team is satisfied.


Where prototypes become fully functional

  • Bring designs to the next level by adding the inner shape to the CAD model.
  • Use rapid prototyping, or other methods, to quickly manufacture the first unit.
  • Ensure that the object meets prescribed standards through crash, tests, simulation & FEA.


Where units are produced

  • Enable the integration of the tooling adjustment into the CAD file to reflect as-built tooling measurements.
  • Assess different parts before producing a large number of units
  • The first article inspection (FAI) is performed and special attention is paid to deviation from the CAD model.


Where units come to life and end

  • Assist with archiving production data (wear & tear), developing marketing presentations, and training new staff.
  • Ensure that the tooling produces quality units and identify which equipment needs to be repaired in order to maintain quality
  • Allows to reverse engineer components to produce replacement or restoration parts


All Creaform portable 3D scanners feature innovative and exclusive technologies :


highly-accurate measurements

TRUaccuracy: Accurate measurements in real life operating conditions

TRUaccuracy ensures highly-accurate measurements, regardless of the environment (instability, vibrations, thermal variation, etc.) or operator skills. Our scanners use software algorithms that simplify the measurement process and greatly increase data accuracy.

portable, handheld & light solution

TRUportability: 3D scanning where you need to go

Our 3D scanners are handheld, light and they fit into a small suitcase. Because they have no mechanical constraint, they allow total freedom of movement and can be brought and used virtually anywhere.

Straight-forward data acquisition

TRUsimplicity: Very simple 3D scanning process

Straight-forward data acquisition process that generates extra fast results, with real time visualization and direct mesh output. Our 3D scanners are up and running in less than 5 minutes and require no rigid set-up nor particular experience from the user. You can scan parts in virtually any size, material or color.
