What can we 3D scan?
3D scanning can be used on almost any part. It could be a van, a building, jewellery or even a prosthetic. It can be a very large item or a small complex model. We have a range of 3d scanners and hardware to meet your needs. Here’s a guide to just some of the models we can 3D scan.
Customers who trust us...
3D scanning an Object...
Before we scan any object, we find out the clients’ needs. What level of detail do you require? What are you trying to achieve?
We then assess what scanning equipment is best suited to the objects size and shape. Does it need target markers or non-reflective spray?
What if the model has very little geometry or texture? If there are no features for scanner to recognise, we’ll use target markers. These help the scanner keep track of its positioning and aid with accuracy.
Not sure if 3D scanning is what you need? Send us some photos, and we’ll take a look. There isn’t much we can’t scan.
3D scanning with markers
If your model has very little geometry or texture, we can still 3D scan it.
If there are no features for the scanner to recognise, we’ll use target markers. These help the scanner keep track of its positioning and aid with accuracy.
3D Scanning Spray
What happens if the model is shiny or black?
We can still 3D scan it. We use a specialist non-reflective spray. It does not leave any coating or residue on the item. You can see it working in the video below;
