Accurate, Reliable & High-Resolution 3D Measurements

The HandySCAN 3D delivers accurate, high-resolution and repeatable results, regardless of the measurement setup quality and no matter the user experience. Featuring dynamic referencing, both the scanner and part can move during measurement and still provide an accurate and high‑quality scan.


This handheld 3D scanner is a stand-alone device that does not require a tripod nor any external tracking device to operate. Fitting in a small suitcase, it can be brought anywhere and used in any environmental conditions without affecting its performance.

Faster 3D Scanning Process

The HandySCAN 3D scanner features multiple laser crosses and an automatic mesh generation, enabling a faster workflow from the set-up to the scan and then to the file!
