Creaform launches Academia 50 3D scanner

Creaform has added the Academia 50 3D scanner to its Academia educational solution suite. This professional-grade, portable 3D scanner is suitable for teachers looking to show students the benefit of handheld 3D scanners and their use in real-life applications, such as reverse engineering, industrial design and quality control.

Easy to set up and use by teachers and students of all levels, Academia 50 employs structured white light technology to scan objects made of any material, or with any surface type or colour. Its technical specifications highlight the device’s performance levels, with an accuracy of up to 0.250 mm and a measurement resolution of up to 0.250 mm.
Academia 3D scanners are part of a turnkey educational solution that includes: 50 free seats of scan-to-CAD and inspection software to show students how to address any conventional or innovative engineering workflow; a five-year Academia customer care plan; and self-training documentation. Creaform offers teachers a free Creaform Academia sample kit that gives academics didactic material to enhance their curricula.
“This latest addition to our Academia educational solution suite attests to Creaform’s commitment to the educational sector by offering the designers and engineers of tomorrow the tools they need to help them excel in their careers,” says François Leclerc, marketing programme manager at Creaform. “We offer a complete education solution that does not sacrifice on quality or performance – all at a cost
which educational institutions can afford.”
