Creaform's new Go!SCAN 3D scanners and VXmodel software provide the ideal,
fully integrated, professional-grade solution to capture real-world objects
and send them to any 3D printer or CAD software.

LÉVIS, QC, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Creaform, a worldwide leader in
portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, today presented
the most versatile, portable and easy-to-use solution to create reliable 3D
content-to-print from existing objects. The Go!SCAN 3D white-light 3D scanners
and VXmodel, a 3D scan-to-print software module are the ideal solution for
professionals in 3D printing and additive manufacturing.

When combining a handheld Go!SCAN 3D scanner with VXmodel and its
3D-scan-to-print functionalities, users can scan any 3D object, clean up their
meshes, make them watertight, and quickly generate print-ready files. Thanks
to VXmodel, they can bypass the unnecessary post-treatment steps as well as
quickly and easily prepare their files to be printed in 3D.

Go!SCAN 3D scanners & VXmodel software offer a wealth of benefits, including:

  *High speed 3D scanning: Typical objects are scanned in 5 minutes or less.
  *Professional-grade measurements: Accuracy of up to 0.1 mm (0.004 in.) and
    resolution of up to 0.2 mm (0.008 in.).
  *Full-color 3D models: Users can easily and simultaneously capture
    high-quality geometry and colors.
  *All the functionalities needed to prepare scan models for 3D printing:
    alignment, geometrical entities and cross-sections, mesh improvement, mesh
    editing, and more!
  *Independent solutions: Works perfectly with any 3D printer.
  *Complete and integrated support: Rely on Creaform's seasoned 3D scanning
    expertise and worldwide support.

"Creaform's unique Go!SCAN 3D and VXmodel module are the perfect complement
for engineering and CAD professionals that use a 3D printer," said Francois
Leclerc, Product Manager. "The duo's seamless and quick integration with any
3D printing or CAD process means that users no longer need to rely on
third-party post-treatment software. This enables them to get the job done
faster. With the Go!SCAN 3D and VXmodel, they ultimately get the optimal
scan-to-print solution!"
