Creaform HandySCAN 700 Elite (SILVER Series) review
This 3D scanner is a trailblazer on several levels. Its cable management system, colored LED distance indicator, and “thumb-accessible” buttons are innovations that have become standard on Creaform products and are now imitated by competing brands.
Its red-colored lasers provide great results, even on reflective surfaces, although we must say that the mandatory markers are a bit of a hassle. The “single beam” mode is a bit slow but performs very well on intricate details and geometries.
- The “Creaform experience”: great product quality and smooth workflow backed by the brand’s extensive expertise
- A complete software solution, honed by years of updates and upgrades
- Use of markers is mandatory
Creaform HandySCAN 700 Elite (SILVER Series) overview
The Creaform HandySCAN 700 Elite is a professional handheld 3D scanner made by Creaform, a leading manufacturer from Canada. It was originally launched in 2014. As of 2022, the SILVER Series now boasts blue lasers instead of red ones.
This portable 3D scanner uses blue laser triangulation technology to 3D scan a wide variety of mechanical parts, mockups, and prototypes. It casts 7 blue laser crosses in “Cross grid” mode, and a single blue laser beam in “Single beam” mode to capture complex details and deep pockets.
We reviewed the HandySCAN 700 in 2016. Creaform has continued updating its lineup since then and re-launched this 3D scanner under the new, more affordable SILVER Series. For the occasion, and after the price drop (down to $29,900), we conducted another HandySCAN 700 review to evaluate its price-to-performance ratio.
This professional handheld 3D scanner suits various use cases, such as:
- reverse engineering
- all steps of design and manufacturing processes
- cultural heritage preservation
- digital archiving
It comes with VXelements software for 3D scanning and 3D file optimization.
Creaform’s HandySCAN lineup includes:
- SILVER Series for less-demanding use cases
- BLACK Series for best-in-class metrology and precision
