NEW ACADEMIA 20 3D Scanner for Teachers, Engineering, Manufacturing Programs

Complete 3D Scanning Equipment Education Suite for Teachers and Research 

Add Creaform ACADEMIA to your arsenal of 3D Equipment and prepare Engineering, Manufacturing, and Design students to work on real-world applications.

3D measurement system manufacturer Creaform has announced the addition of the ACADEMIA 20 3D scanner to its educational product portfolio.


Designed specifically for use within the classroom, the ACADEMIA 20 is optimized for scanning small parts, and makes 3D printing them as easy as possible for teachers and students. When used alongside Creaform’s existing software suite, the scanner provides educators with a hands-on training tool, this enables them to demo the technology’s R&D, reverse engineering and inspection applications.

“It is of the utmost importance that students be prepared for today’s demanding engineering sectors, including aerospace, automotive and manufacturing industries,” said Daniel Brown, Product Management Director at Creaform. “Our ACADEMIA educational solution suite is a clear path to achieve that goal, especially as universities and colleges increasingly offer more programs specialized in additive manufacturing.”
