Creaform UNIversal Laser Scanner


Creaform have just released a new entry-level version of their 3D hand scanner: the UNIScan. Their well-known hand-held scanner has been around a while, but this version is substantially less expensive (USD$28,900, approximately 30% less expensive than their current low price model, the REVScan) and provides good value.



  • Weight: 980 grams (2.1 lbs)
  • Dimensions: 160 x 260 x 210 mm (6.25 x 10.2 x 8.2 in)
  • Measurements: 18,000 measures/s
  • Laser class: II (eye safe)
  • Resolution in Z axis: 0.1 mm (0.004 in)
  • Accuracy: Up to 80 μm (0.003 in)
  • ISO: 50 μm + 250 μm/m
  • Depth of field: 30 cm (12 in)
  • Output format: .dae, .fbx, .ma, .obj, .ply, .stl, .txt, .wrl, .x3d, .x3dz, .zpr

For many applications, handheld scanning may be the only possibility, and Creaform has been successfully producing this style of scanner for quite some time.


Did we say it's available right now?
