Advantages

Precise, Dependable, High-Definition 3D Measurements

The HandySCAN 3D produces precise, high-definition, consistent results, in any measurement situation and regardless of the expertise of the user. The unique dynamic referencing feature produces precise, high‑resolution scans even while both the scanner and object move during measurement.

  • Accuracy
    0.025 mm (0.0009 in)
  • Volumetric accuracy
    0.020 + 0.040 mm/m (0.0008 in + 0.0005 in/ft)
  • Reliable acceptance test
    Based on VDI/VDE 2634 part 3 standard
    ISO 17025 accredited laboratory
  • High resolution for fine details

Portability

The hand-held 3D scanner goes anywhere without needing a tripod or any external devices to function. It’s small, protective carrying case means you can rely on consistent performance every time, in any environment.

  • Lightweight
    0.94 kg (2.1 lb)
  • Self-positioning with dynamic referencing
  • Fits into a suitcase
  • Take it anywhere you need
