Provider of 3D-measurement solutions and engineering services, Creaform, has launched a suite of 3D-measurement solutions for the academic market. Known as Creaform Academia, it is said to offer a didactic suite for teachers and researchers looking to inspire and push the innovation envelope forward using latest industry technologies.
Creaform says Academia is a comprehensive educational initiative for teaching and research. It introduces new ways for professors to facilitate the integration of latest metrology tools into classrooms and research labs, while addressing market needs and budgetary constraints, the company notes. Creaform's Product Management Director Daniel Brown said: “With Creaform Academia, we want to introduce new ways for professors to facilitate the integration of latest metrology tools into classrooms and research labs.” Brown added that the initiative builds on industry 4.0-proven technologies and allows the company to bring forward important access to industrial 3D scanners.
Teachers can easily integrate 3D scanning into their classroom with the company's affordable professional-grade 3D scanner on the market. The Academia 3D scanner is the perfect tool for educating future engineers on the concept of 3D scanning and understanding its applications in engineering, the company claims.
For demanding research projects where performance is critical, Creaform offers an affordable portfolio of 3D measurement technologies, while offering a five-year, worry-free Creaform Academia Customer Care Plan as well.
Furthermore, teachers interested in introducing 3D scanning to their students (but are not ready to purchase) can get free access to a Creaform Academia software package that includes 50 free software seats for Creaform’s reverse engineering and dimensional inspection software and teaching kits, including unlimited access to exclusive presentations, video tutorials, pre-built lab exercises and sample data sets, etc.
