Creaform revolutionises professional-grade 3-D ScanningCreaform’s entry-level 3-D scanning solutions, under the peel 3d brand, has launched its third generation of 3-D scanners.

A business unit of AMETEK, Inc and a world leader in portable 3-D measurement solutions and engineering services, Creaform announced the release of peel 3 and peel 3.CAD earlier this month. These professional-grade scanners will provide high-performance, great versatility, and unmatched affordability to anyone who needs it.

The scanners are available in two different bundles: peel 3, a new generation of 3-D scanning technology that includes the peel.OS data acquisition software, and peel 3.CAD, a fully integrated 3-D scanning solution for reverse engineering that combines the peel 3d scanner and peel.CAD reverse engineering software.

In both cases, the scanner features an easy-to-use multi-functional LCD touchscreen, an industry-first haptic user communication through vibration, and an improved resolution. Combining its new operating system with a watertight, crush-proof, and dust-proof rugged case, the scanner is considered ideal for applications like heritage preservation; AR; VR and digital content; healthcare; aftermarket and tuning; product design; MRO; and engineering.

Beginning in 2017, peel 3d branched off of Creaform as a testing ground, exploring the need on the market for an entry-level, professional-grade 3-D scanning technology. Five years later, what started with a single scanner derived from Creaform’s technology architecture has become a full product line up with technology developed specifically for this market.

Marco St-Pierre, vice president of technology and innovation at Creaform, said: “The peel 3d initiative has become a great complement to Creaform’s metrology-grade portable and automated 3-D measurement solutions for industrial applications. This new scanner marks yet another important step in peel 3d’s history by developing its own technology and personality to address its users’ specific needs.”
