Portable 3D measurement technologies manufacturer, Creaform has launched Creaform ACADEMIA, a new academic suite of 3D measurements solutions designed for teachers and researchers in the academic market.
“With Creaform ACADEMIA, we want to introduce new ways for professors to facilitate the integration of latest metrology tools into classrooms and research labs, while addressing market needs and budgetary constraints,” says Daniel Brown, Product Management Director at Creaform. “This initiative builds on industry 4.0-proven technologies and allows us to bring forward important access to industrial 3D scanners to unlock key competence of future engineers and provide versatile new resources to teachers and researchers.”
The ACADEMIA 3D scanner is an affordable solution for teachers looking to introduce 3D scanning into their classroom or lab to educate future engineers on the concept of 3D scanning and understanding its applications. The full ACADEMIA solution suite includes professional-grade ACADEMIA 3D scanner, free application software, and complimentary add-ons tailored to get users started.
For teachers not ready to purchase a device but still interested in 3D scanning, they can get free access to a Creaform ACADEMIA software package which includes 50 free software seats for Creaform’s reverse engineering and dimensional inspection software, teaching kits including unlimited access to presentations, video tutorials, pre-built lab exercises and sample data.
Creaform says it is offering its complete portfolio 3D measurements technologies at an affordable price point with a 5-year, Creaform ACADEMIA customer care plan, whether or not the user focus is teaching or research.
