Creaform Presents the Perfect 3D Scanning Solution for 3D Printing Applications

Press release date: May 14, 2014

Creaform's new Go!SCAN 3D scanners and VXmodel software provide the ideal, fully integrated, professional-grade solution to capture real-world objects and send them to any 3D printer or CAD software.

LÉVIS, QC - Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, today presented the most versatile, portable and easy-to-use solution to create reliable 3D content-to-print from existing objects. The Go!SCAN 3D white-light 3D scanners and VXmodel, a 3D scan-to-print software module are the ideal solution for professionals in 3D printing and additive manufacturing.

When combining a handheld Go!SCAN 3D scanner with VXmodel and its 3D-scan-to-print functionalities, users can scan any 3D object, clean up their meshes, make them watertight, and quickly generate print-ready files. Thanks to VXmodel, they can bypass the unnecessary post-treatment steps as well as quickly and easily prepare their files to be printed in 3D.

Go!SCAN 3D scanners & VXmodel software offer a wealth of benefits, including:

        --  High speed 3D scanning: Typical objects are scanned in 5
            minutes or less.
        --  Professional-grade measurements: Accuracy of up to 0.1 mm
            (0.004 in.) and resolution of up to 0.2 mm (0.008 in.).
        --  Full-color 3D models: Users can easily and simultaneously
            capture high-quality geometry and colors.
        --  All the functionalities needed to prepare scan models for 3D
            printing: alignment, geometrical entities and cross-sections,
            mesh improvement, mesh editing, and more!
        --  Independent solutions: Works perfectly with any 3D printer.
        --  Complete and integrated support:Rely on Creaform's seasoned 3D
            scanning expertise and worldwide support.

"Creaform's unique Go!SCAN 3D and VXmodel module are the perfect complement for engineering and CAD professionals that use a 3D printer," said Francois Leclerc, Product Manager. "The duo's seamless and quick integration with any 3D printing or CAD process means that users no longer need to rely on third-party post-treatment software. This enables them to get the job done faster. With the Go!SCAN 3D and VXmodel, they ultimately get the optimal scan-to-print solution!"
