3D Blue Light Laser Scanner

Our Creaform HandySCAN Black is a handheld 3D scanner that enables CAD engineers and industrial designers to curate a 3D version from existing physical objects.

Another characteristic of the 3D scanner is that its native rendering software, VX Elements, allows the flexibility to clean and fully optimize your scanned data before it transfers to Solidworks. A user can extract dimensional information, the rendering process, from the data before transferring it to a certain computer-aided design software.

Blue light technology takes real-world objects and into digital form. The scanner can detect the smallest detail on any object and give the exact measurements.

Some scanners only scan to a picture while our scanner is metrology-grade.

The data from the scan can be rendered and then manipulated in our CAD software, Solidworks, and then that data can be delivered to any machine to produce the product.  

Given that it has a high resolution specially made for intricate details and for full vibrant color support, Creaform Arm’s spotless scan quality is perfect for modeling any freeform surfaces that will show even the smallest features in your subject.

Aside from its impeccable scan quality, another advantage of Creaform Arm is the versatility that it offers its users. Its advanced laser and optical technologies, as well as its limitless scanning volume feature, the Creaform Arm 3D scanners can specifically measure any part of your chosen object — regardless of its size, shape, material, complexity, and surface finish.

With its user-friendly interface and its plug-and-ply feature in every device, scanning different kinds of objects and surroundings has never been this easy and enjoyable. The Creaform Arm 3D scanner has all that with built in rendering software and scan-to-CAD.

Unlike other types of 3D scanners, choosing to use the Creaform 3D scan means that the generated 3D object is already lightened and processed. This means that it is ready to be integrated perfectly into your preferred reverse engineering type, computer-aided design system, or 3D printing software.

Benefits of 3D Scanning

CAD Design Software

Over two million engineers and designers apply Solidworks in their respective companies. Including a large market share of education licesenses, Solidworks is considered to be the most popular CAD software on the market.

Solidworks’ uses the principle of parametric design and generates three types of interconnected files namely the part, the assembly, and the drawing. Any modification to one of these files will be applied in the other two in real-time. This software immensely aids you to perform any 2D and 3D modeling since this computer-aided design software is popularly known or its ease of use.

The Importance of Solidworks in Your Business

Since Solidworks is a user-friendly,parametric design modular software, you can easily create and edit your chosen design at any stage of its process. With the help of RealView graphics and PhotoView 360, these tools allow you to visualize your design in real-time while making a sophisticated photo realistic renderings and animations. Your designer is able to look at each of your individual design parts, see its accurate mass properties, and check for interference between components. As a result, you won’t have to manufacture the product first in order to analyze its functionality— saving you time and money. This system speeds up the  research, design, and development process, increasing your productivity level.

Having a computer-aided design system that is widely recognized is essential in any engineering and design company. It is important that you choose a software that is compatible with the customer and supplier preference file format but with Solidworks, this is not an issue.

The chances are high that a customer, supplier, or even a competitor is using the Solidworks software. This easily eliminates the need to convert the files needed from one system to another, which results in time saved and minimizes the chance for mistakes. This is a key factor in developing a systematic approach to working with customers and suppliers that needs a standardized software package. Results are in better time management, increased efficiency, and delivering better results.

Time is valueable, which is why companies want their organization to strive for continuous improvement and set the standard against their competitors. Solidworks software is your best choice for CAD as it offers its users a consistent user interface all throughout the design and draft procedures, producing a continuous and logical flow from beginning to end. This makes the transaction of 3D CAD system to be swift, simple, and easy.

This software has built-in tutorials and a number of wonderful presets to make any designing fast and stress-free. In addition, it also has a training course structure that is solely designed to let customers build a suitable learning and development path that tackles essential information about what a specific industry needs.
