Scanning in 3D has been around for years, however the increased popularity of 3D printing has brought a great deal of interest to the 3D scanning market as of late. Just like a 2D printer and a 2D scanner can work in tandem to copy a document, a 3D scanner and printer can work together to copy physical 3D objects.
A company called Creaform understands the importance of this amazing technology, thus they have worked hard in launching two new versions of their Go!SCAN 3D portable scanners. The company has announced the release of the Go!SCAN 50, as well as the Go!SCAN 20.
The Go!SCAN 50 is targeted more towards those wishing to scan medium to larger objects, while the Go!SCAN 20 is perfect for those working with 3D printers. The Go!SCAN 20 allows for extremely intricate detailed scans of smaller objects. Below are several features of the new devices.
- Very high speed scanning. Most objects can be scanned in under 5 minutes.
- Amazing accuracy – The Go!SCAN 3D provides an 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.
- TRUsimplicity™ – Extremely simple scanning process.
- Point and shoot – No preparation or complicated setup is required. The scanner is up-and-running in under two minutes.
“Thanks to this latest Go!SCAN 3D release, 3D scanning has never been easier,” explained François Leclerc, product manager of Creaform. “With the addition of color and the intelligent hybrid positioning system, the Go!SCAN 3D are the professionals’ go-to all-around solution for professional-grade 3D scanning capabilities,”
The Specifications of each scanner are as follows:
Creaform specializes in 3D portable measurement technologies, and is a unit of AMETEK Ultra precision Technologies, which is a division of AMETEK Inc, a global manufacturer with over $3.6 billion in annual sales.
