Go!SCAN 3D weighs in at just 1.1 kg

LÉVIS, Canada – Creaform announced today the release of its new Go!SCAN 3D handheld scanner, which uses white light technology for “intelligent hybrid positioning” and “yields great results when used towards both industrial and non industrial applications.”

The scanner, which will complement the laser-based Handyscan 3D and MetraSCAN 3D scanners in the Creaform portfolio, is being billed as “point-and-shoot”: “The scanner is up and running in less than two minutes,” the release reads. Markets targeted include reverse engineering, historical preservation, entertainment and gaming, forensics and more.

Weighing in at just 1.1 kg, its portability is one of its selling points, as its ability to make use of “dynamic referencing” so that the part being scanned need not remain in one place.

The press release also says accuracy of up to .1mm is possible.

Perhaps its most salient selling point, however, is what Creaform is calling an “affordable” price point.

“The Go!SCAN 3D comes from our willingness to further expand our reach and make 3D scanning accessible to a much larger group of companies and individuals,” said Daniel Brown, product manager, in a statement. “We wanted to provide a scanning experience that combined incredibly quick results with real user-friendliness, at a very interesting price point. Thanks to these features and along with its reliable data, we believe that the Go!SCAN will really open up tremendous possibilities for scanning in a wide array of industries.”

With this kind of positioning, it’s not difficult to see the product as a response to Artec’s EVA white light scanner, which SPAR profiled here.
