Using Industrial Design to create a Professional look, with enhanced usability

Our Industrial Design team in Vancouver was challenged to re-design their flagship product, the Arius3D Identik 300R laser scanner.

Arius3D is a leader in laser-based optical 3D scanning systems. Our Industrial Design team was challenged to re-design their flagship product, the Arius3D Identik 300R laser scanner. This is the only 3D scanner using direct colour measurement to quantify and collect points containing both geometry and colour. Art museums and galleries are using this to scan their masterpieces and produce incredibly accurate replicas using 3D printing technology. 

The visual design language needed to be professional to communicate it’s high value and precision. Functionally the unit needed to be robust, easy to move and internals accessible for servicing.  Due to the low unit volumes the design had to utilize manufacturing methods with minimal tooling costs.

The result is a solid memorable form with purposeful details. An integrated handle allowing it to be safely and easily moved around. The one piece top housing is easily removed and allows for 360 degree access to internals.
