Hand-held scanning

Accuracy Meets Portability

The HandySCAN 3D scanner started the hand-held revolution in 2005 by providing scanning technology that does not need a positioning device, such as a portable arm or a laser tracker.

While other systems have tried to emulate the HandySCAN 3D, none are able to come close to the quality and accuracy of data that can be acquired with this amazing technology.

Versatile 3D scanner

The World’s Best Handheld 3D Scanner!

The HandySCAN 3D is the most versatile handheld scanner on the market with unique self-positioning capability made 3D scanning simple and efficient. Additionally, a stand-alone device that does not require a tripod nor any external tracking device to operate. Fitting in a small carry case, it can be brought anywhere and used in any environmental conditions without affecting its performance.

User-friendly interface

Simple and Versatile

With its user-friendly interface and ergonomic design, the HandySCAN 3D is easy-to-use and has a short learning curve. Its versatility gives the opportunity to scan various object sizes and surface types in real time – all with the same device.

The built-in multi-function buttons enable you to control the scanning process without having to learn complicated computer functions, and the large stand-off and small size of the scanner lets you scan in spaces that were never possible before. With HandySCAN BLACK ELITE, the additional built-in single line scanner provides scanning inside deep pockets or holes.
