3D Scanning with HANDYSCAN 3D

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.

When accuracy meets portability. Introducing the HandySCAN 3D laser scanners.

New Features

  • 25 times faster than the previous generation
  • 40% more accurate
  • 35% lighter, and 50% smaller
  • Multi-function buttons for easier interaction with the software
