What can we 3D scan?
3D scans can be effective on almost any surface. It could be a vehicle, a building, jewellery or even a prosthetic. It can be a very large item or a small, complex object. Our top-of-the-range 3D scanners allow us to give you the best results possible. Here are just some of the items we 3D scan.
Customers who trust us...
3D scanning an object...
Before we scan any object, we find out the client’s needs. What level of accuracy do you require? What are you trying to achieve?
We then assess what scanning equipment is best suited to the object’s 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 the 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 pictures, and we’ll take a look.

3D scanning with markers
When your model lacks substantial geometry or texture, we can use target markers. They help the scanner monitor its positioning and assist with accuracy. Once the 3D scan is complete, we will remove all markers.
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;
Recent 3D scanning work...
This is a recent scan of a bumper. You can see the targets used to capture the shape.
Here is a 3D scan of a bespoke part for a classic MG. Enabling us to create a unique badge mount.
We scanned a rare chopper frame. The scan enabled an exact replica to be created.
This is a WW1 death Penny scan. A perfect replica can now be reproduced.
