Creaform

VXmodel, Go!Scan 50 and 20, and HandyScan 700 and 300

Creaform has launched its new VXmodel software, released two new versions of its Go!Scan white light 3D scanner, and updated its HandyScan 3D laser scanner.

The VXmodel software is fully integrated with VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform. This eliminates the need for design professionals to open, learn and use third-party software for most applications. With VXmodel acting as an integrated bridge, users have all the tools they need to prepare their 3D-Scan files for CAD or 3D-print solutions in one intuitive application.
