Meet peel 3, a cost-effective, professional-grade 3D scanner

Peel 3d, a spinoff brand from global 3D capture leader Creaform, launched its first 3D peel 1 scanner in 2017. The third generation of these cost-efficient and versatile 3D scanners aims to elevate the 3D scanning experience for professional users across various industries.

The peel 3 is designed and manufactured in Canada and powered by Creaform’s industry-leading 3D capture tech. It comes calibrated right out of the box, to ensure reliable and consistent performance over time. 

peel 3 is priced at $8,490, while peel 3.CAD comes a little bit more expensive at $11,990, making the devices perfect tools for budget-conscious customers.

Overall, the peel 3 is a turnkey handheld 3D scanner that brings a strong value at a very competitive price point. No doubt this launch will make waves in the increasingly competitive landscape of affordable 3D scanners.

A smooth 3D scanning experience

With this release, emphasis has been put on ergonomy and user experience. The redesigned ergonomic handle, touchscreen interface, and innovative haptic feedback system (an industry-first!) make the whole 3D capture experience a breeze-even for beginners.

The peel 3 comes with the peel.OS software, an easy-to-use data acquisition software that covers all steps of the 3D scanning workflow. For users looking to perform reverse engineering tasks, the peel 3.CAD package allows the seamless transfer of the captured data to third-party CAD software. This integrated scan-to-CAD solution is a first in the market segment of affordable 3D scanners.

A versatile portable 3D scanner

The peel 3 scanners can be leveraged for a variety of applications, from AR/VR and digital content to product design, healthcare, MRO and engineering, education, art, and heritage preservation.

Key features

Haptic feedback

Haptic user communication is a real innovation that we haven’t seen before on a 3D scanner. This function helps the user generate high-quality 3D scans by producing recognizable vibration patterns to guide the user during the scanning phase. A useful innovation, especially when capturing parts in narrow and hard-to-reach places without a direct line of sight.

LCD touchscreen

The multi-function touchscreen interface makes the whole UX quite intuitive and its revamped ergonomic design makes it unique and nice to use.

Wide range of capture

The peel 3 is capable of 3D scanning objects ranging from 0.1 m to 3 m, making it a great fit for a wide range of applications. It can also capture colors and textures.

All-in-one software

Peel 3 comes with its own powerful software, peel.OS, to process, clean, align, improve and export 3D scanning data. The peel 3.CAD upgrade allows users to smoothly export 3D models to all major CAD software.
