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
  • restoration
  • digital archiving
  • entertainment

It comes with VXelements software for 3D scanning and 3D file optimization.
