Creaform Makes a Move Towards Democratizing its 3D Scanning Technology

The company launches a new scanner and makes its Handyscan 3D laser scanners more affordable than ever

Lvis, September 15, 2009 Creaform, developer and manufacturer of the Handyscan 3D line-up of handheld, self-positioning and portable laser scanners, is proud to present the UNIscan, the latest and most affordable addition to this family of revolutionary 3D scanners.

Handyscan 3D performance at half the price
Starting at US$28,900, this scanner is positioned as the entry-level model of the line-up. The UNIscan offers equal resolution and speed of acquisition and an accuracy of up to 80 m in addition to all the well-known Handyscan 3D benefits: self-positioning, true portability, versatility and ease of use. Plus, the UNIscan comes with VxScan Express, a version of Creaforms proprietary data acquisition software offering fewer functionalities.

Since the launch of the Handyscan 3D scanners line-up, Creaform has been striving to democratize and promote the use of 3D scanning in numerous industrial, multimedia and medical applications, said Charles Mony, president of Creaform. We are really happy to open 3D scanning to a wider community by simplifying it, without giving up on the performance, quality, concepts and technology that made the Handyscan 3D scanners so successful."

Wide range of applications
The UNIscans range of applications and target industries is as diversified as that of its fellow scanners. The most economical Handyscan 3D scanner is perfectly suited for applications of reverse engineering, styling, design, artwork scanning, multimedia contents creation, 3D archiving, packaging design, rapid prototyping and heritage preservation.
