  • Metrology-grade measurements: accuracy of up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in.), resolution of up to 0.050 mm (0.002 in.), high repeatability and traceable certificate.

  • Accuracy in real-life conditions: regardless of environment conditions, part set-up or user.

  • No rigid setup required: optical reflectors are used to create a reference system that is “locked” to the part itself, so users can move the object any way they want during scanning sessions (dynamic referencing). Changes in surrounding environment have no impact on data acquisition quality or accuracy.

  • Self-positioning: the HandySCAN 3D scanner is a data acquisition system and its own positioning system. This means that no external tracking or positioning devices is required. It uses triangulation to determine its relative position to the part in real time.

  • Reliable: consistent and repeatable results across all work conditions or environments.

  • On-demand user calibration: the scanner can be calibrated as often as necessary (day-to-day basis or before each new scanning session). Calibration takes about 2 minutes and guarantees optimal operation


  • Stand-alone device: there is no need for an external positioning system, arms, tripod or fixture.

  • On-the-go scanning: you can take it from place to place or use it in-house or on site.

  • Lightweight: weights under 1 kg.

  • Small: Fits into a case the size of a carry-on.

  • Easy access to confined spaces: thanks to its small size and flexible stand-off distance


  • Fastest 3D scanner on the market: 25 times faster than the previous generation.

  • Highest measurement rate among all laser scanners: 480,000 measures/s.

  • Automatic mesh output: ready-to-use files, right as you complete acquisition.

  • Quick workflow integration: usable scan files can be imported into RE/CAD software without post-processing.


  • User-friendly: very short learning curve, regardless of the user’s experience level.

  • Quick set-up: up and running in less than 2 minutes.

  • Direct mesh output: no complicated alignment or point cloud processing.

  • Real-time visualization: look at the computer screen to see what you are doing and what is left to be done.

  • Versatile: virtually limitless 3D scanning – no matter the part size, complexity, material or color.



VXelements: 3D software platform

The HandySCAN 3D scanners come with VXelements, a fully integrated 3D software platform that powers our entire fleet of 3D scanning and measurement technologies. The user-friendly software thrives off a sleek and simple working platform. gathering essential elements, including real-time visualization, it creates the best scanning experience.

Upon completing the scan, an optimized file is automatically created, significantly reducing the time involved in your inspection/design process.

VXscan: Scan software module

VXscan is designed specifically for acquiring and optimizing 3D scan data. Delivering high performance for specific tasks, while still remaining user-friendly makes the software perfect for any user's level of experience.
  • User-friendly interface: VXelements was designed to simplify the whole scanning process to its essential core, through a powerful and simple process.
  • Surface optimization algorithm: avoids the creation of multiple scan layers and ensures a more accurate mesh without any post-treatment
  • Direct mesh output: an optimized mesh can be exported in all standard formats, right as you complete acquisition. No complicated alignment or point cloud processing needed
  • No limitation to the scan resolution: you simply need to input a resolution value, independent from the size of the scanned object. Resolution can be changed at any time before/after the scan
  • Real-time visualization: the user can view the 3D surface as the object is being scanned
  • Scan results enhancement: hole filling, smart decimation, boundary filters, etc.

VXmodel: Scan-to-CAD software module

This post-treatment software seamlessly integrates into VXelements, and allows finalization of 3D scan date. Whether it is for analysis or 3D printing, VXModel provides the quickest path from scan to CAD/Additive Manufacturing. 

VXremote: Remote access software application

In-field effeciency is greatly improved with VXremote. Offering speedy activation and set up, it also benefits from not requiring hardware or server maintenance. It is your data, at your fingertips.
