Creaform debuts new 3x faster Go!SCAN SPARK 3D scanner
Creaform, a Canadian 3D measurement solutions company, has launched its latest product, the Go!SCAN SPARK. The new 3D scanner marks the third generation of the company’s patented Go!SCAN 3D portable 3D scanning technology. The professional scanning device integrates four inline cameras, enabling faster 3D scanning rates and colour acquisition as well as higher resolution scans.
In addition to the four-camera configuration, the Go!SCAN SPARK has also been updated with an ergonomic design that enables different hand positions when scanning. Creaform adds that the scanner is capable of capturing full-field dimensional measurements on a wide range of surfaces and textures, making it suitable for numerous product development applications.
“The work of product designers and engineering has greatly evolved over the past few decades,” said Simon Côté, Product Manager at Creaform. “Today, product development teams are under increasing pressure to innovate more quickly, work with multidisciplinary, remote teams and launch products faster than ever before.
“Go!SCAN SPARK generates quality 3D models, facilitates the design iteration process, mitigates errors and speeds up reverse engineering. Without a doubt, the new Go!SCAN SPARK is a key tool in designing products to maintain a leadership position in innovation and a manufacturer’s specific market sectors.”
Compared to its predecessor, the Go!SCAN SPARK reportedly offers four times higher resolution, with flawless colour texture and geometry tracking; three times faster scan speeds with a scanning area with 99 stripes that takes up to 1,500,000 measurements per second; and twice the accuracy, with reliable measurements of up to 0.050 mm.
The plug-and-play 3D scanner also facilitates the conversion of 3D scan data into mesh files, making it easier for users to import their scans into 3D modeling or 3D printing software without the need for digital post-processing.
The Go!SCAN SPARK will be presented in Europe for the first time at the Control International trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany from May 7 to 10, 2019.
