D2M Solutions is Unique




The most flexible portable 3D measurement solution engineered for shop floor conditions


The arm-free handheld MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanning system is the most accurate scanning and probing solution on the market, the new most flexible portable 3D measurement solution engineered for shop floor conditions. Combined with the HandyPROBE, this complete and powerful inspection solution increases the reliability, speed and versatility of the measurement process, whether for metrology or large-scale reverse engineering applications.

Unexpected costs, production and part approval delays from non-conformities are no longer an issue when using Creaform’s portable optical CMM 3D scanner, the MetraSCAN 3D. The system addresses reverse engineering and dimensional inspection of production tools, jigs, assemblies, sub-assemblies or final products ranging from 1 to 3.5 m (3.3 to 11.5 ft.) with an accuracy of up to 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.). Optical metrology provides measurement accuracy that is insensitive to the instabilities of the environment, making the MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM the prime choice for shop-floor quality control metrology. Free of any rigid measurement set up, it maintains the same level of performance regardless of the environment instabilities.

Help operators better manage processes and respond faster to the industry’s increasing quality control (QC) requirements—all without compromising the manufacturing throughput. With its extendable measuring volume, incredible speed, shop-floor accuracy and impressive capabilities on challenging materials, the MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM represents the most complete metrology-grade 3D scanner on the market. It even features optional probing system pairing compatibility. Get ready to experience true quality control on your shop floor.

Dynamic Tracking: VXtrack

The C-Track dual-camera sensor is a complete portable 3D measurement solution that offers probing inspection and dynamic measurement capabilities. It is fitted with high-quality optics and special lighting, enabling it to measure all reflectors within its operating space. The probing stylus is very useful for aligning parts with respect to a referential (calculated using a group of reflectors), which allows movement or deformation monitoring directly on the part’s referential.

As its name implies, the C-track tracks the reference model of the whole system, and it ensures the accurate localization of the HandyPROBE portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) or the MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanners. It performs continuous image acquisition and transmission, lighting of reflectors, management of exchanges with the computer and storage of sensor parameters.


Dynamic Tracking

The VXtrack dynamic tracking functionality, offered as an optional software module with the HandyPROBE CMM, is a key component of the TRUaccuracy technology, which guarantees the highest precision there is. Thanks to this feature, the C-Track can be used to measure positions and orientations in space simultaneously and continuously, and with great precision. This makes it possible to control displacements, drive assembly processes or measure deformations.

PHIARO CORPORATION, founded in 1939, is a Japanese design development company that offers end-to-end styling, engineering, modeling, prototyping and small lot production to Japanese automobile and motorcycle manufacturers

Application & Benefits


    • Highly-accurate measurements: accuracy of up to 0.085 mm, no matter the measurement environment (instability, vibrations, thermal variation, etc.) or operator skills.
    • Greater measurement volume:compared with 3D scanners on articulated arms, the MetraSCAN 3D scanners allow a greater basic measurement volume (7.8 m3/273 sq ft).
    • Extendable measurement volume: Volume can be easily and dynamically extended with no loss of accuracy and without any conventional leapfrog or additional alignment set-up involved. No need for the operator to re-align data after moving the part or the C-Track.
    • Automatic alignment: manual operation is no longer needed during the alignment phase and root cause errors are drastically reduced. Optical reflectors allow scanning and probing many identical parts in rapid succession.
    • Dynamic referencing:With the C-Track’s dynamic referencing mode, the coordinate system can be literally “locked” onto the part being measured, thus maintaining part alignment during the entire scanning process.
    • User calibration: fast calibration process using a certified gauge, which ensures constant accuracy during the MetraSCAN 3D entire life cycle.
    • Continuous monitoring of parameters: Monitoring of parameters such as temperature and accuracy ensure constant device accuracy during entire useful life.


    • No rigid set-up required: allows inspection or reverse engineering of a part “as is” and on-site, without any preparation, jigs or specific tooling – even if suspended under a crane!
    • Fast and easy measurement: handheld and armless. Intuitive system with a very short learning curve. 5-minute installation. Allows the measurement of parts in production without having to align every part.
    • Scanning and probing capabilities: complete and powerful metrology and reverse engineering solution that allows geometrical and freeform inspection and scanning on the same part.


    • Handheld and ergonomic design: The 100% portability of the MetraSCAN 3D makes it possible to inspect or reverse engineer parts, sub-units or complex assemblies with unequalled precision, mobility and flexibility – no matter where (lab, factory, off-site, etc.).
