“With this partnership, Creaform integrates the community of Dassault Systèmes resellers for PLM with a specific value proposal in reverse engineering,” said Laurent Couillard, vice president of PLM sales for North Europe, Dassault Systèmes. “Indeed it complements the existing channel by providing end-to-end best of class 3D Scanning solutions everywhere and contributes to expand our position in the SMB market.”
After the US and Canada agreement, the extension to Europe makes the total solution now available from everywhere, for every SMB customer.
Creaform develops Handyscan’s VxScan, a CAA-based software enabling a real time import of cloud of points scanned by the Handyscan into the standard CATIA data model for 3D scanned data, bridging the virtual and real worlds.
“After signing the CAA agreement with Dassault Systèmes in 2007 and becoming an Education Partner earlier this year, this reseller agreement illustrates the confidence both companies have in reaching new European customers with valuable technology while accelerating their return on investment in 3D scanning operations,” said Charles Mony, president of Creaform .
Creaform develops scanning and 3D digital solutions for reverse engineering, product development and inspection applications including CAD/CAE/CAM applications and portable CMM. Creaform develops and sells the Handyscan 3D, the first self-positioning hand-held 3D laser camera. This state-of-the-art scanner gives real time 3D rendering visualization and the file can be exported in any standard format.
