McLennan Library

The McGill Research Commons has one Matter & Form 3D scanner - this scanner can be booked by email at 3dprint.library@mcgill.ca.

The Cube

The Cube is the largest student-run 3D-printing service at McGill University. Its main lab space is located on the second floor of the MacDonald Engineering Building, Room MD264 . Our highly experienced scanning techs at the CUBE operate two 3D scanners, the FARO Arm and Creaform HandyScan, both scanners offer high-precision laser scanning and are capable of accurately recreating highly complex parts models. Our trained technicians are also always available for consultation and general inquiries. To date, we serviced a variety of clients, from researchers to student design teams.
The equipment listed below is on campus to serve students and researchers, but it is not for rent or sale - it is used by our technicians to fulfill your reverse-engineering needs. For more information, or if you'd like us to list your equipment, contact us. Please email aml.mecheng@mcgill.ca to set up a consultation with our scanning technician.


The FaroArm is used for laser3D scanning and contact CMM measurement that can be used for dimensional analysis, 3D inspection, CAD comparison and reverse-engineering.

Creaform Handyscan

The Creaform HandySCAN 3D scanner meets the needs of product development and engineering professionals on the lookout for the most effective and reliable way to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects.
This metrology-grade scanner underwent a complete re-engineering, building on its core assets. It is portable and faster at delivering accurate and high-resolution 3D scans while remaining overly simple to use.
