"We are stunned how fast the new scanner is. With our G3-360-500N  we have 160ms acquisition + processing time and get 300k points at 30 microns accuracy levels." German Automotive customer

"With the new G3 and an optimized robot loading system we can reduce part inspection time to less than 30 seconds". German Automotive customer

"We decided for the new G3 because of the low latency time between acquisition and accessable point cloud data. This is essential for our closed loop patient tracking". German Medical Engineering customer 

"ShapeDrive has an excellent customer support. I like the easy-to-integrate software." German first tier automotive supplier

"We were looking for a 3D digitizing system that was affordable and works with Matlab, Python and other applications. ShapeDrive was our first choice". German Technical University

"We have to equip several work places with fast non contact digitizers. ShapeDrive provides fast, affordable and accurate results". German Automotive Customer.
