Play • 35 min

3D scanning has been around for decades, but the technology today truly qualifies as an Industry 4.0 tool. Creaform is one of the world's leading developers of 3D scanning technology, and Fanny Truchon leads that business as it seeks to design the most cutting-edge, high precision and accessible devices for all industries.

If you don't know much about 3D scanning, be prepared to be amazed by the multitude of applications and capabilities this technology has. From product design, reverse engineering and inspection, to artifact archiving, 3D modeling and medical applications, 3D scanning is something every manufacturer and technical program should invest in.

Plus, hear about brand-new product Creaform has just launched that will totally revolutionize 3D scanning.

3 Big Takeaways from this episode:

  1. 3D scanning is truly an Industry 4.0 technology: 3D scanners use lasers, cameras, lights and sensors to measure millions of data points in just seconds, creating a 3D rendering of objects large and small with a precision that measures in microns. Learn how 3D scanning, artificial intelligence and data analytics are making this technology a must-have in multiple industries.
  2. 3D scanning has an unbelievably wide range of applications: About 90% of 3D scanning is used for standard manufacturing practices: reverse engineering, first article inspection, quality inspection during production, and surface damage assessment. But hear about some more unique applications, like forensics, art and artifact preservation, construction, medical uses, and even 3D character development for games and movies.
  3. New technology announcement: HandySCAN MAX: Fanny announces the launch of Creaform's newest scanners, the HandySCAN MAX series. This new technology is capable of measuring large parts - up to 50 feet - using just a handheld scanner!
