Starting at $150 High accuracy 3d scanning services
Send us your physical object, or yourself, and we'll convert it into a high quality 3D model in no time.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Some of the 3D scanning projects that we've done
How our 3d scanning services works
Give us an idea of what to 3D scan
Send us a picture of the object that you'd like to be 3D scanned. It will give us an idea if 3D scanning is right for your project.
Receive a quote
After we get an idea of your project requirements, we'll send you a rough estimate of how much it costs. Our 3D laser scanning services starts at $150.
Send us the object to 3D Scan
Once approved, you can mail us the object that you like to be scanned. If the object is too large or fragile for delivery, you can bring it to our Queens office and we'll take it from there. We can also send one of our technicians to you if necessary.
Start 3D scanning
After we have all the requirements including your object, we can start 3D scanning. It will take 2-3 days depending on the complexity of the project. We do multiple iterations and CAD modeling changes to make sure that the 3D model matches the original work.
See it live
Once the model is finished, we'll send you the 3D files and you have the option to have it 3D printed. We can make it larger, smaller or true to scale --- whichever you want it.

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.

Reverse Engineering Parts
We often get clients who are looking to fabricate a part or product that a manufacturer have since discontinued. Building the 3d model for these parts from scratch takes enormous amount of time and resources --- from getting the right measurements to making sure that the mechanism works.
Ever since we included 3d scanning to our services, we're able to make our engineering process much faster and easier.

What people say about our 3D Scanning Services
Super turnaround time! Talked to them about 3D scanning my sculpture. Sent them my piece and they were able to send me a 3D model the next day it arrived!

How much does 3D scanning cost?
At PrintAworld, 3D laser scanning cost starts at $150. The price depends on the complexity of an object and the amount of post-processing work needed to modify the resulting scan.
How long does it take to 3D scan?
Depending on the complexity of your object, 3D scanning can take between 1 hour up to 8 hours or even more. If the object has a lot of intricate details This does not include the post-processing work required to clean up the
How does 3D Scanning work?
At PrintAWorld, we use the latest 3D Scanning technology to scan your object to generate a digital version of it. Our team of designers would then clean this file to make sure it’s close to the original.
What file formats do I receive?
Our output files are .OBJ and .STL, and all of our files are 3D print ready.
Where is your 3D scanning service located?
Our 3D scanning services are located in NYC and Los Angeles, California.
What other services do you offer?
We offer 3D printing services, 3D modeling services, and other prototyping solutions. We currently do not offer metrology services as this is out of our current expertise.
