Introducing the NEW Generation Go!SCAN3D, the easiest portable 3D scanning experience for generating fast and reliable measurements.

High Speed Targetless Scanning

Go!SCAN3D is unquestionably Creaform's fastest, user-friendly handheld 3D scanner, out-performing all other fixed or handheld scanning devices on the market today. A powerful tool during the product development phase, Creaform has once again raised the bar for speed, ease of use and portability in 3D scanning in full colour. Using an innovative method of tracking surface geometry and texture, Go!SCAN3D is the first hand-held scanner that really can measure without the need for targets. Real-time surface creation enables the scanner to recognise where it is on the part, allowing the user to scan without the need for applying reference targets, fully utilising the shape of the part and texture of the surface for live positional tracking. Of course, you can still use targets if required on large featureless objects such as flat surfaces, but in most cases this isn't required. All in all, Go!SCAN3D will be your most powerful ally during the product development phase, quickly measuring any complex surface and making it possible to “get it right” the first time. 

Using the dedicated VXelements software, which has been developed specifically to make your scanning experience as easy and fast as possible, you have the possibility of seamless integration with your existing 3D modelling software and your product life cycle management workflow. Make GO!SCAN3D your "go to" scanning device, and you will greatly improve product development, foster innovation and significantly shorten time to market. Just go…and scan ! 

Go!SCAN3D - The Fastest and Easiest Scanning Experience

Unlike Creaform's flagship scanner, HandySCAN BLACK, the all-new Go!SCAN3D is designed specifically for those that don't necessarily require metrology grade scanning to tens of microns. The aim is to provide fast and easy high-resolution scanning that is suitable for even the most demanding of reverse engineering, product design and product development tasks.

Go!SCAN3D is so user-friendly that anyone can begin scanning both small parts and large objects within minutes, even without prior scanning experience. It is designed to perform without any part preparation; simply point and shoot, and an instant preview is provided during scanning, showing what is left to capture in real‑time.

Using the latest white-light projection technologies, Go!SCAN3D is able to quickly collect high volumes of accurate scan data, with real-time surface meshing to significantly reduce the time required to capture scan data within your existing CAD or 3D simulation software. Go!SCAN3D delivers accurate, high-resolution and repeatable results, regardless of the measurement setup quality and no matter the user experience. Featuring dynamic referencing, both the scanner and part can move during measurement and still provide an accurate and high‑quality scan
