Portable optical CMM 3D scanner

The MetraSCAN 3D features 15 laser crosses and a high measurement rate to accelerate 3D scanning processes. Thanks to quick setup and onboarding, real-time scans and ready-to-use files, your 3D scanning workflow will never have been faster.

  • High measurement rate
    1,800,000 measurements/second
  • Large scanning area for all types of parts
    15 laser crosses
  • Ultra-quick setup
    No warm-up time; users can be up-and-running in less than 5 minutes

Free from any rigid measurement setup requirements, the MetraSCAN 3D is designed specifically for use on shop floors. It delivers accurate results, regardless of the measurement setup quality and user experience level. Thanks to the C-TrackTM optical tracker that enables dynamic referencing, the scanner, the part, and the optical tracker can move during the inspection and still, provide accurate measurements.

High resolution
Measures all types of complex and highly detailed parts.

Highly versatile, the MetraSCAN 3D can be used to scan various part sizes and surface finishes in real-time—all with the same device.

With its extendable measurement volume, parts of any shape, complexity and geometry can be measured easily without loss in accuracy or requiring leapfrog.

Blue laser technology
Ideal for shiny and reflective surfaces

Large and easily extendable measurement volume
Wider than other portable CMMs
No leapfrog required

Optional HandyPROBE
Combination of both 3D scanning and probing
No targets required

When paired with the HandyPROBE, Creaform’s handheld optical coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) with probing capabilities, users can also harness the power of both 3D scanning and probing for complete, end-to-end inspection processes.

MetraSCAN 3D’s innovative technology enables unprecedented accuracy, simplicity, portability, speed, and efficiency for 3D inspections in your production environment. 3D measurements of a variety of complex parts, sizes, materials, and finishes have never been this easy.
