The Scantech SIMSCAN is a professional high-resolution handheld 3D scanner that offers an outstanding acquisition speed of 2,020,000 points/s alongside 20 microns accuracy. Weighing less than 600g, the SIMSCAN is one of the smallest and most lightweight 3D scanners in the world. The device features a futuristic and refined design and is outstandingly portable. Thanks to its resolution of 0.025 mm, it can easily capture details of hard-to-scan objects (e.g. complex surfaces, deep holes, dead angles). Moreover, the scanner has been integrated with optimized data algorithms, which provide a high level of adaptability, meaning that the device can even scan objects with transparent, shiny, and black surfaces more easily. 

The Scantech SIMSCAN offers a 250 mm depth of field and volumetric accuracy of 0.020 mm + 0.040 mm/m, which is remarkable considering its dimensions. Thanks to a plethora of different scanning modes, namely: ultra-fast, hyperfine, and deephole, this metrology-grade device becomes an outstandingly flexible solution that can be used for literally any kind of 3D scanning project. 

The scanner can be used in a plethora of different applications, such as:

  • Aerospace industry
  • Automotive industry
  • Industrial production
  • Reverse engineering
  • Quality control
  • 3D modeling
  • Production of injection molds
  • Healthcare and dentistry
  • Cultural heritage preservation
  • Education, science
  • Design
  • AR/VR

Check out some of the renders made with the Scantech SIMSCAN to see what it's capable of. 

As you can see, the SIMSCAN can create precise and well-detailed three-dimensional renders of complex and hard-to-scan objects, which makes it a good choice for industrial applications that require rapid scanning speed and millimeter-precise renders.
