Creaform has released a new HandyScan 3D Silver line-up of handheld 3D scanners, targeting SMEs and professionals wanting to take 3D scanning in-house.
Billed as an ideal tool for designers and engineers looking for a ‘powerful and accessible way to improve product development, shorten time-to-market, and reduce development costs’, the Silver is the latest sub-category in the Creaform line-up.
Portable, lightweight and quick to set up, the Silver line of Creaform HandyScan models can be up and running in under two minutes, either in-house or on site.
Developed and manufactured in North America, the Silver series are labelled as Creaform’s ‘accessible’ price offering. Available in two models – the HandyScan 307 and 700 – the units start at $19,990/€17,400 and $29,900/€25,900, respectively.
Both models use 7 red laser crosses to quickly capture the surfaces in the entire field of view, with a scan area of 275 x 250 mm, suitable for capturing parts of 10mm up to 4m.
Creaform states that the Silver 307 can capture up to 0.040 mm, while the Silver 700 is set up to capture detail up to 0.030 mm.
“For the professionals who need to adapt quickly to their customers’ needs and provide better answers to their inquiries, a reliable 3D scanning solution is indispensable,” explains Creaform product manager Simon Côté.
“The possibilities presented by gathering such precise data can open doors to new projects and strengthen the partnerships with existing clients. It cannot be overstated how 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies have become vital for any small-to-medium sized company.”
