The Handyscan 3D laser scanners are already in use at leading car manufacturers. They streamline the design cycle by reducing the number of prototypes needed during the design stage. They offer an excellent ROI by dramatically reducing man-hours in prototyping and analysis and are used in many different stages of the design process and in a wide range of manufacturing operations It’s no wonder that numerous well-renowned automobile manufacturers such as Renault and Daimler Chrysler use it.

To analyze and approve designs, most automobile manufacturers use processes and methods such as rapid prototyping. Thanks to the Handyscan 3D technology, the modified prototype can easily be scanned and reintegrated into the digital development line to be manipulated and enhanced using a variety of different computer-aided design (CAD) software suites.


With a Handyscan 3D laser scanner, prototypes are scanned directly in wind tunnel. The collected data can then quickly be used for finite element analysis (FEA) aerodynamics studies. Multiple simulations can be run over short periods, therefore reducing the development time cycles.

OEM auto parts

The Handyscan 3D scanners are ideal for building custom, after-market and OEM parts. The accuracy of the collected data allows OEM auto parts manufacturers to build replacement parts that are exact copies of the originals.

Clay models

The Handyscan 3D laser scanners are extremely helpful and effective when used to create computer-assisted design (CAD) files from the clay model of a car. Standard procedures such as the following have been successfully implemented by our customers from the car industry:

  1. A clay model is created by an artist or designer.
  2. Data acquisition (scanning) of the clay model is done by the scanning technician using the Handyscan 3D scanner.
  3. A CAD model is created by the design engineering team using the captured data.
  4. Modifications can be done on the clay model and/or CAD model in a fast and effective manner.

Ergonomic analysis

Producing a comfortable car and bringing it to market is extremely important to remain competitive in the industry. The Handyscan 3D scanners are an easy and highly flexible way to perform ergonomic studies.

Parts inspection and quality control

During the manufacturing process, it is important to inspect parts, components, subassemblies, and assemblies as part of the quality control process. These parts can be scanned with the use of the Handyscan 3D scanners and the captured data then exported to a CAD application for verification and inspection, including tolerances displayed in color mapping reports, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), etc.

Automatic robot path certification

The Handyscan 3D scanners can improve integration of robots into assembly lines through posture studies, path analysis, and more.

Reverse engineering

The Handyscan 3D scanners can dramatically speed up the CAD file creation process from an existing part or product.
