Some of the 3D scanning projects that we've done


Why you should consider 3D scanning your next project

Save on design time

3D scanning makes reverse engineering an existing object a breeze. This allows engineers to not have to sit and draw out the original design for hours on end, which in the end, saves everyone time. And,time saved is money saved.

Faster Prototypes

Laser scanning technology makes it possible to fabricate art faster. The faster the art is made, the quicker it is to production and to the hands of the museums and galleries.

Scale your product however you like

Do you want a much larger version of pre-existing object? With 3D scanning, every data point is saved including the measurements of your object. You can build a small model by hand, have it 3D scanned and we can 3D print it for you in any size you want.

High-Quality Control

3D scanning is great for quality control. It has tight and accurate dimensions. It can even get the roughness and "imperfections" of your sculpture that will give ita more natural look. In 3D printing, the quality of what the machine is fed is important to get the desired results. The better the feed, the better the 3D printed art.

Ability to test if the components will fit

3D printing service has been used for a long time to make prototype parts or 3D printed art. However, with the 3D scan, it is also easy to see if components will fit together without ever actually producing the replica.

Production ready

The scanner is quick and very accurate. This makes it a great solution for the end of production quality checks. Pulling off a part for quality check has never been easier. The scanner can quickly and efficiently check every part or a sample of parts with ease. So, it can be used for prototypes in the 3D printed art project or used in the final product. 3D scans are great for both 3D printing service as well as production.

Applications for 3D scanning

Here's some of the things that you can do with our 3D scanning services

  • Vinyl Toy Production

    We've worked with artists that have a handmade sculpture of their designer toy that they would like to turn into a 3D model. This 3D model is then 3D printed, painted and sold as limited edition resin prints. The artists also use the 3D model to 3D print a large scale version of their design.

Artistic Furniture Replication

One of the most popular use cases that we get from our clients are hand-made furnitures that they want replicated or applied with a finishing such as metal. With 3D scanning, we can capture every detail of the furniture, including the correct measurements and the intricate designs that these furnitures usually have. To get it faithful to the original work, we include post-processing such as cleanup and a bit of 3D sculpturing with the guidance of our clients.
