The HandySCAN 3D™ handheld scanners of new generation have been optimized to meet the needs of product development and engineering professionals on the lookout for the most effective and reliable way to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects. Creaform’s flagship metrology-grade scanners underwent a complete re-engineering, building on its core assets. They are now more portable and they are faster at delivering accurate and high resolution 3D scans while remaining overly simple to use. Yet, it is their true portability that has changed the rules and set a whole new trend in the 3D scanning market.



HandySCAN BLACK combines high-performance 3D scanning with improved optics, multiple blue laser technology and a sleek, ergonomic design. Its distinctive simplicity and portability are a huge advantage. The HandySCAN BLACK sets the standard for measurement, regardless of size, material or complexity,within seconds anywhere.

Key features include:

- 4X resolution
- 3X faster measurement speed and instant mesh
- More accurate and traceable measurements
- Available in BLACK and BLACK|Elite
- And much more!

The HandySCAN 3D delivers accurate, high-resolution andrepeatable results, regardless of the measurement setup quality and no matter the user experience. Featuring dynamic referencing, both the scanner and part can move during measurement and still provide an accurate and high‑quality scan.
