Creaform 3D Scanners Review

Do you know the difference between these 3D scanners? This is a comparison side-by-side of the three 3D scanners from Creaform, each one has its own strengths. This is an objective review so you can choose better.

Streamline 3D scanning Offline Simulation

Streamline by 3D Infotech allows easy robot programming and 3D scanning from its user interface. But if you want more control, Offline programming is available through RoboDK simulation. 3D Infotech - RoboDK workflow allows easy simulation and programming with very powerful features.

UMA Blade

UMA Blade, is a fast and accurate solution for aerospace and industrial gas turbines. Improve the inspection workflow during manufacturing or for maintenance, repair, and overhaul.

3D Scanning to Innovate - Porshe 911

In this video, we went to BBI Autosport to scan their Porshe 911 which is one of the winners of the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. BBI required a full 3D model to check the aerodynamics of the car, since they only designed some of the parts, a full CAD model was not available. This car was scanned in less than 1 hour by 3D Infotech using Creaform's MetraSCAN, it is amazing what you can do when you are not limited by the volume and when you don't need to spend time placing targets.

Automated 3D Scanning with HandySCAN Black

This is an all-in-one solution for robotic automation of 3D scanning, this is a full product driven by Streamline software, our own software that enables you to program a robot and the 3D scan on the same user interface.

Robotic 3D Scanning Cell for Automotive Parts

Fast full surface dimensional inspections of automotive parts using a laser 3D scanner. Meet the UMA Smart Cell, a fully automated robotic inspection system.

Robotic 3D Scanning with HandySCAN Black

This is our UMA Smart Station 3x6, This station is an all-in-one system for dimensional inspection. The complete system is driven by Streamline software who syncs all devices and offers a easy-to-use interface to do everything from a single screen.

Robotic Inspection with Machine Vision

This is a demo showing the integration of our software Streamline and Cognex Insight cameras, our software offers a single interface to program the robot, rotary, rail, camera and even other 3D scanners.  The Cognex In-sight 7000 is a great tool with auto-focus and integrated light that is perfect to integrate with a collaborative robot.

Robotic Fluorescence Penetrant Inspection

Fluorescence Magnetic Particle (FMPI) and Fluorescence Liquid Penetrant (FLPI) inspection are critical for die castings and forgings.  3D Infotech has developed a system that can replace the dark room with a dedicated camera on a robot.

Part Placement Verification before 3D Scanning

Streamline software by 3D Infotech now supports the new Part ID module, it will use a machine vision camera to validate if the part is placed in the right position and orientation, also validates if it is the right part. This saves the 3D scanner from accidentally crashing into a part when using the wrong part or program.  It also allows to scan different part numbers in the same system without switching fixtures or measuring placement.

UMA Smart Desktop

Meet the UMA Desktop, an end-to-end solution for inspection. Our station supports different 3D sensors, from the HandySCAN Black from Creaform all the way to the Gocator sensors from LMI. One software and hardware solution.

Streamline Assist Comparison

Presented here is a side-by-side comparison of a 3D scanning and inspection workflow using the HandySCAN BLACK Elite, VXelements, and PolyWorks. On the left is a traditional inspection process. On the right is an enhanced workflow where Streamline Assist takes control of every step and parameter of the inspection for the user.

Augmented Reality with Spotlight AR++

Spotlight AR++ for PolyWorks is an augmented reality tool that allows users to project color maps and features directly into the part to visualize directly on the surface.

UMA at Automate 2017 with LMI

3D Infotech showcased the all new Gocator 3210 snapshot sensor from LMI Technologies at Automate 2017. This automated 3D scanning solution is powered by our Streamline automation software. With Streamline, automated inspection systems can be rapidly configured and deployed with plug and play functionality. 3D scan data is rapidly processed through PolyWorks, provided manufacturers with reduced cycle times and real-time visibility into production quality. This particular configuration utilizes the UR3 collaborative robot from Universal Robots.

UMA Smart Cell

3D Infotech's Universal Metrology Automation Smart Cell supports Universal Robots, Kuka and Fanuc, also supports 3D sensors like Creaform, LMI, Faro and Zeiss.

UMA at Automate 2017 with Creaform

Automated inspection using Creaform HandySCAN and Universal Robot's UR5. Driven by Streamline software by 3D Infotech.

MetraSCAN with Streamline

3D Infotech’s Streamline automation software facilitates ease of hardware integration, robot path teaching, and user operation for the Creaform MetraSCAN-R.

MetraSCAN Fender Scanning with Streamline

Streamline software driving Universal Robot's arm and Creaform's Metrascan. This solution provides one of the fastest laser scanning solutions for metrology automation for the automotive industry.  Metrascan scanner uses C-Track optical tracker to feed PolyWorks with the position of the 3D scanner, which provides an additional aid when stitching scan passes together.  This is ideal when scanning large flat surfaces or other surfaces with no distinctive features.

Kuka LBR iiwa and HandyPROBE

3D Infotech’s automated inspection solution for the challenges of measuring transparent objects. Since 3D scanners use laser or structured light scanning to see the shape of an object, scanning a transparent object becomes an almost impossible challenge as light passes through this material. Combining the power of Universal Metrology Automation with 3D probing, there is now a solution for this challenge and other similar applications where 3D vision has difficulty capturing data. For example, deep pockets or holes can now be easily measured with this solution.
