SIMSCAN, a palm-sized portable 3D scanner, is specially designed for 3D scanning narrow and hard-to-reach areas. Featuring full-metal housing, it is incredibly sturdy and reliable. SIMSCAN has become a disruptive innovation among professional 3D scanners due to its compact size, simplicity, and robust performance. Its cutting-edge design also wins itself German Red Dot Award and China Design Silver Award. SIMSCAN performs high-quality 3D scanning regardless of any restrictions from the working environment. It is ideal for 3D scanning both narrow spaces and large-scale parts. Users can accurately capture every detail of objects and construct 3D models in a very short amount of time with the help of this metrology-grade 3D measurement instrument.

The only 3D scanner the size of a hand

SIMSCAN, the only hand-sized portable 3D scanner in the market so far, is a disruptive innovation of the traditional 3D scanners’ structure and a revolutionary product in the 3D optical metrology industry.

No matter whether in narrow spaces or under huge objects, SIMSCAN performs high-quality 3D scanning without any restriction of the working environment. Metrology-grade measurement system helps capture every detail and construct the 3D model in a very short time. Designed under minimalism, the metal shell enables SIMSCAN to achieve a balance between weight and performance.

Single-handed control

Weighted only 570 g and sized 203 × 80 × 44 mm, SIMSCAN portable 3D scanner brings unparalleled simplicity for scanning anything with one hand.

Portable 3D scanner

No matter whether in narrow spaces or under huge objects, the remarkable portability of the SIMSCAN portable 3D scanner enables it to proceed with 3D measurement anywhere and anytime.

Detail, everywhere

Under parallel blue laser mode or single line deep hole mode, every detail is nowhere to hide, even for scanning complex surfaces.
Smooth 3D experience
11 crossed blue lasers, 2,020,000 measurements/s and 410*400 mm scanning area bring smooth and efficient 3D digitizing experience.

Narrow-space Measuring Booster

Compared with its competitors, SIMSCAN has a much shorter camera distance of 130 mm, which forms a steeper view angle to 3D scan narrow spaces. Therefore, SIMSCAN is more capable of capturing accurate and complete data in hard-to-reach areas like deep grooves and ensures users capture full-field data.

Remarkable Portability

SIMSCAN boasts a compact size and excellent portability. No matter whether in narrow spaces or under huge objects, SIMSCAN portable 3D scanner can conduct 3D measurements anywhere and anytime. When paired with a wireless communication link AirGo Pro, supports mobile 3D scanning and data viewing for truly flexible, reliable, and effective measurement experiences.


Remarkable Portability

With its multifunctional buttons, users can switch between different modes at any time. Its single-handed operation allows flexible measuring and its ergonomic design makes it comfortable to use. Designed with an anti-slip housing and a strap, it is safe for users to scan in all directions freely.
