Yeah it will be ugly for the established manufacturers and arguably the providers once the chinese copies of terrestrial laser scanners start to permeate the market as well.

Already have thunk3d, prince3d, and now this metrascan rip-off out there for the handheld metrology side of things.

"Our R&D team developed series of 3D digital equipment with self-owned intellectual property rights such as handheld laser 3D scanner, composite 3D scanner, global 3D scanner, color 3D scanner, tracking 3D scanner and global photogrammetry system. Especially PRINCE series with capability of capturing extreme details and AXE series with high volumetric accuracy are global innovations, gaining great attention and recognition in the 3D digital field."

From their website they claim self developed tech for their products.

In reality it looks a lot like creaform hired a sketchy intern or an engineer/consultant, or left a server unsecured. Maybe they also attempted to set up a production operation in china and lost their IP through that process.
