Creaform 3D Technology And Digital Solutions has introduced Handyscan 3D scanners, touted as the most accurate and portable 3D scanners on the market today. The VIUscan™ is a new self-positioning scanner that opens the door to quick, affordable and accurate colour scanning processes. Part of a well-renowned line-up of advanced 3D scanners, the VIUscan is the only truly portable handheld 3D colour scanner to deliver such accurate and hyper realistic results. Creaform is a world-class and innovative technological company founded in 2002 offering 3D digital solutions.
The Handyscan 3D laser scanners are currently used and fully implemented in many industries and applications like:
Multimedia/Entertainment – face/body still scans for realistic human representation, special effects or face replacement (stunts)
Digitising of real life inanimate objects/environments for optimum realism, production of full size decors through the digitising of small scale maquettes
Museology/Heritage preservation & architecture: Representation of art pieces for multimedia presentations, virtual museums (web, on-site), digital archiving, production of replicas for commercial and marketing purposes (e.g., scaled down version of statues), damage assessment, restoration of cultural heritage (reverse engineering/repairs based on remains), virtual restoration, 3D reproduction of archaeological/historical sites, scanning of fossils, scanning of fossils for analysis, reconstitution and reconstruction purposes
E-Marketing/Web Development: Scanning of objects for interactive 3D content, (e.g., product animation or visualizstion in 3D for online sales), production of 3D models for web design
Industrial Design: Reverse engineering (design from existing colour objects), design from scaled down colour maquettes, coloured or annotated clay models, shape and colour part inspection, technical documentation (assembly, maintenance and repair document), 3D collaboration
Other applications include: aerospace, automotive/transport, consumer products, education, manufacturing, medical care, 3D scanning of existing objects, 3D archiving, forensics, artistic and medical applications, complex shape acquisition, measurements archiving, damage assessment, digital models and mock-ups and rapid prototyping.
