Creaform announced that its new quality control lineup has won the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. According to the jury: “Thanks to this portable 3D measurement system, highly complex data can be collected with absolute accuracy. It fascinates with a lightweight structure, easy-to-use functionality, perfect ergonomics and an economical material usage. The system’s components blend into a highly symbolic and emotionalizing appearance. The device embodies an overall solution of high design quality with an exemplary character.”

The 41-member jury awarded the Red Dot: Best of the Best for top design quality and ground-breaking design to Creaform’s optical CMM solutions, which all deliver unmatched accurate and reliable 3D measurements – even in the harshest and most unstable production environments.
The portable optical CMM HandyProbe Next was created with a carbon structure, optimized with FEA and featuring excellent weight distribution. The device can be operated with two ergonomic positions: a more stable “stylus pen” style, and a versatile “joystick” style. Both the MetraScan 3D portable optical CMM 3D scanner and C-Track optical tracker feature a new, more aggressive design and a reinforced structure for improved stability. Software interoperability, as well as easier session control with gesture recognition, also were integrated into each during the initial design.

“From the very beginning, Creaform has relentlessly focused on the look and character of its products. Design plays an integral and impactful part in our R&D process. This vision has proven to be instrumental in helping us gain market share within a historically conservative field. We are extremely proud of Red Dot’s recognition of our products’ designs as well as how lightweight, easy to use and ergonomic they are – all of which are crucial features for our clients,” said Marco St-Pierre, Division Vice-President, Technology & Innovation.
