Creaform GoSCAN 50 3D Scanner

The Creaform GoSCAN 50 is a flexible and rapid 3D scanning system, designed to address a wide range of professional needs, from industrial use cases to more specific applications such as cultural heritage conservation, education, virtual reality, arts, and even architecture. The 3D scanning process is fast and flexible thanks to the unique cable connecting the 3D scanner.

Creaform GoSCAN 50 3D Scanner


The Creaform GoSCAN 50 is packaged in a rugged protective hard case, build with very strong plastic, and fitted with thick protective foam. Included in the transport case is the connectivity cable of the device, which splits up as a connectivity cable to the computer and an alimentation cable. The connectivity cable plugs to USB 2.0 plug on a computer while the alimentation cable requires an AC plug.

Calibration process

This professional metrology equipment requires a specific calibration process in order to function properly. The calibration plate is a nice finished plain flat wooden box. It contains some warnings and a white area covered with several specifically placed targets. In total, the calibration process takes less than 2 minutes and simply requires the user to follow simple steps in the Creaform VXElements software (VXElements is the data acquisition platform for all Creaform scanners).

Testing the Creaform GoSCAN 50

The sensor itself weighs 950g and is quite compact: 150 x 171 x 251 mm (5.9 x 6.7 x 9.9 inches). The distribution of weight is ergonomic, with most of the heavy parts (color module, projector, and one camera) positioned towards the bottom of the Go!SCAN 50.

The handle of the device is very comfortable and has a very ergonomic feel. However, if you intend on using the 3D scanner for a long capture time, it is better if you have big hands since the handle itself is quite big.

The trigger-like button is activated by a soft touch with the index finger, to start and stop the 3D scanning process. The Go!SCAN 50 itself is connected to a computer via a USB 2.0 port.

There is only one cable coming out of the 3D scanner. This cable splits in two after a few meters, into a USB connection for the computer and an alimentation cable to be connected to a standard AC wall socket. Compared to some competitors which rely on two cables, the single cable is a big advantage for mobility and flexibility while 3D scanning.

The laptop we used in this demonstration is the recommended computer, provided in this test by Creaform. It’s a powerful HP laptop with a Windows 7 OS 64 bits, 32 Gb of RAM, an Intel Core i7, and an Nvidia Quadro K1100M GPU.

We do not recommend a less powerful configuration, as 3D scanning requires a lot of computing power. Windows 10 is not officially supported yet but we heard that some Creaform customers use it successfully.

Non sive caeli fulminibus dixere formaeque radiis cognati. Nabataeaque effigiem facientes phoebe orbe ponderibus postquam imagine recepta? Capacius sive sidera pluviaque effervescere terrarum.
