Ease Of Use


1 click calibration

Fully automatic calibration that takes 4 minutes to complete.

8 MP cameras x 2

It is the highest resolution scanner we know of.
Scan repeatability is as low as 4 micrometres.

1 click scanning

Full colour scanning


Allows you to position the scanner across the room, keeping your immediate desk space clear.

Gripping holders

The tack pad secures larger objects quickly.
The mini-vice holds small objects with minimal blocking.  The jaws are made of plastic so you can scan it, not scratch it.

Add view

This feature forces the scanner to look into the crevices of your object to get the most complete scan possible.


Highly competitive pricing.
We started on a crusade against over priced medical technology.
