Portable 3D Scanning Technologies

Creaform develops and manufactures its proprietary portable 3D measurement technologies, which are used by its crew of application engineers (AE) every day. AEs have an extensive and intimate knowledge of Creaform's advanced scanners, and other complementary partner technologies, and they operate them to their maximum potential. Creaform therefore delivers on the promise of high quality 3D scanning projects within a short time frame for clients around the world.


Short-range scanning involves generating a digital model of very small to medium-sized objects over a wide array of options for surface finish, shine, reflectivity, texture, color, and levels of intricacy or detail. Creaform's accurate and efficient technologies enable the generation of ready to use part-to-mesh-to-STL files in minutes.

Proven expertise includes:

  • Part-to-CAD inspection
  • Reverse engineering (design intent or as-built)
  • 3D digital preservation and archiving
  • Competitive product analysis
  • Preparation for rapid prototyping (including colour), and prototype inspection



Creaform is an authorized wordwide distributor of Surphaser long-range scanners.

Long-range scanning is a valuable approach used to obtain a digital representation of large and oversized structures for sectors such as aerospace, heavy industry, power generation, oil & gas, and civil engineering. The raw Surphaser data can be converted to genetic point cloud data or to a mesh file.
