3D Scanning & 3D Printing: A Natural Combination

by Cameron Bevan

3D Scanning is the art of capturing real geometry by scanning physical products and getting them into a format to be used for diverse applications such as 3D printing, reverse engineering, inspection, and more.


If you think about it, 3D digitizing and additive manufacturing truly go hand-in-hand. So the partnership Creaform announced with Stratasys this summer is an absolute perfect fit.

In an effort to best serve its clients and prospects, GoEngineer, the number one worldwide Stratasys reseller in 2014, is now a reseller of Creaform 3D scanners and software. I am heading up the sales effort with Dave Arena, Applications Engineer, handling technical support.

And we not only sell the hardware and software products, but GoEngineer is also a 3D scanning service bureau for companies that need scanning but are not quite ready to invest in the products themselves. We also are certified to provide training on all of the products we carry.

Creaform’s HandySCAN 3D laser scanners have been completely re-engineered for optimum speed, accuracy, and portability. In fact, the HandySCAN product won the coveted 2015 Red Dot Award for product design.

The benefits of the metrology-grade HandySCAN 3D product are many:

  1. Quick set-up: Get up and running in less than 2 minutes
  2. 25 times faster than former generation
  3. Highly accurate and complete 3D scans from high resolution and the ability to substain higher measurement rates.
  4. Automatic mesh output: Get ready-to-use files as soon as data acquisition is complete—and integrate within your workflow without any post-processing
  5. Much more…

HandySCAN 3D scanners can be used at all stages of product lifecycle management: concept, design, manufacturing, and servicing.

    What is the price of Handy Scan 3D? We are looking for portable scanners for our Graphic Designing business.
    I understand this is an old model but we are actually low on budget.

    There has been a very different approach to 3D scanning and 3D printing. The task is very effective and makes the things work for us. The technology is surely booming and application of it can be seen easily in the field of manufacturing and the medical equipment technology.
