Creaform's HandySCAN 3D has won a 2015 Red Dot Award: Product Design. The internationally respected award is now in its 60th year and recognised innovation in product development and design. This year, Red Dot received nearly 5000 entries from over 1900 participants.
The HandySCAN 3D handheld scanner, a fast and reliable self-positioning metrology-grade scanner for industrial applications, was acclaimed for a forward-thinking design that meets customer needs.
Thanks its portability and ability to withstand even the most complicated measurement environments, including production shop floors, hard-to-reach places and harsh outdoor conditions, the HandySCAN 3D scanners can be used in a variety of applications, including design, prototyping, testing and simulation, assembly and production, quality control, reverse engineering, architecture and preservation, restoration and digital archiving.
"We had to set aside our current paradigms and challenge each aspect of the product's design to meet the evolving needs of our current clients-and particularly unspoken needs of various market segments as a whole," explained François Lessard, Nicolas Lebrun and Yoakim Martin, the two industrial designers and mechanical engineer who spearhead the HandySCAN 3D's design and mechanical development.
"We are thrilled that our design and technical prowess in 3D measurement technologies has been acknowledged by such a reputable organization."
"This recognition underscores the hard work of our employees as well as just how attuned our R&D is to market needs. Creaform is continuing to redefine 3D measurement-and the Red Dot Award: Product Design for 2015 is a testament to this excellence," said Simon Côté, Product Manager for the HandySCAN 3D.
