Portable 3D Scanners: HANDYSCAN 3D


Handyscan 3D stand out as the most accurate portable 3D scanners on the market today.

Because we know that you are serious about your work, we have developed an extensive line of handheld 3D scanners that will work wherever you need them to. Our scanners feature the TRUaccuracy technology, that guarantees accuracy no matter the environment, part set-up or the user’s level of experience. Thousands of units later, our 3D laser scanners are living up to their reputation of reliability and versatility.

Serious work. Serious technology. Introducing the Handyscan 3D scanners.


Looking for the most efficient way to reverse engineer and/or design? The REVscan will prove to be a reliable tool that will help you get there.




The EXAscan offers increased accuracy and resolution. It is the most versatile 3D scanner on the market for inspection and demanding reverse engineering.




The MAXscan is the obvious choice for 3D scanning of larger parts. It features the Handyscan 3D high-accuracy, enhanced with photogrammetry capabilities.




Need high-resolution 3D colour data and shape? The VIUscan will capture every detail and deliver hyperrealistic results.


TRUaccuracy Technologyhandy1

Dynamic referencing makes it possible to move the part during the 3D scanning session, so there is no need for a rigid set-up.

High accuracy

Generates accurate, repeatable, high resolution 3D data (0.040-0.050 mm).

Self-positioning device

No need to use a coordinate measuring machine (CMM), measuring arm or any other external positioning device.


Fits into a case the size of a carry-on. Take it from plant to plant and use it in-house or on site.


Very short learning curve, no matter the user’s experience level.  Up and running in less than 2 minutes.

Handheld and lightweighthandy2

The scanner weights about 1 kg.

Freedom of movement

There are no mechanical constraints. Flexible stand-off distance, which make it possible to reach confined areas.

Direct Mesh Output

Real-time visualization of the scanned surface.


Virtually limitless 3D scanning – no matter the part size, complexity, material or color.




The Handyscan 3D scanners come with VXelements, a fully-integrated 3D data acquisition software that powers its entire fleet of 3D scanning and measurement technologies. It gathers all the essential elements and tools into a uniform, user-friendly and intuitive working environment.


VXscan is entirely dedicated to the acquisition and optimization of 3D scanning data. It delivers high performance for that specific task, yet it is simple and user-friendly enough to suit any user's experience level.

  • Surface optimization algorithm that avoids the creation of multiple scan layers and ensures a more accurate meshing without any post-treatment;
  • The output is an optimized meshing that can be exported in all standard formats;
  • No limitation to the scan resolution: just input a resolution value, independent from the size of the scanned object. Resolution can be changed at any time before/after the scan. The software can recreate a meshing from the raw data previously acquired;
  • Surface is rendered in real time (the user can view the 3D surface as the object is being scanned);
  • The creation, from the meshing, of geometrical entities;
  • Other functionalities such as optimization of the meshing such as hole filling, smart decimation (without definition loss on the meshing), or boundary filters.


VXelements Express

The UNIscan, the Handyscan 3D line-up entry-level model, comes with VXelements Express. This simplified, easier to use and learn version of VXelements has been developed to match and maximize the UNIscan’s capabilities.
