Latest Creaform 3D scanner unveiled

A thoroughly re-engineered Go!Scan 3D scanner has been released by Creaform: the Go!Scan Spark.

This third-generation version of Creaform’s patented, professional-grade Go!Scan portable 3D scanner has been specifically designed for product development professionals who need an efficient portable scanner to capture the 3D data of physical objects, anywhere.
The Go!Scan Spark device features four inline cameras for fast 3D scanning and colour acquisition. The system also offers an ergonomic design that allows for different types of hand positions, enabling full-field dimensional measurements on an array of surfaces and textures for various product development applications.
Set-up is not required, with the device offering robust positioning using geometry, colour or targets. In comparison with previous units, the latest generation product offers four times better resolution and three times faster measurement. The scanning area features 99 stripes that take up to 1.5 million measurements per second, ultimately cutting down the time to get usable mesh files, which users can import into 3D modelling and 3D printing software without post-processing. Reliable measurements of up to 0.05 mm are possible.
“The work of product designers has greatly evolved over the past few decades,” says Simon Côté, product manager at Creaform. “Today, product development teams are under increasing pressure to innovate more quickly, work with multi-disciplinary, remote teams, and launch products faster than ever before. Go!Scan Spark generates quality 3D models, facilitates the design iteration process, mitigates errors and accelerates reverse engineering. Without a doubt, Go!Scan Spark is a key tool in designing products to maintain a leadership position in innovation and a manufacturer’s specific market sectors.”
