Introduction to 3D Scanning.

We get very excited about 3D scanning and therefore about 3D scanners and scanning software. 3D scanning is the process of creating a 3D digital models from physical objects or environments. There are wide variety of different 3D scanners and technologies on the market and we can help you choose the right one for your application. Applications include animation, archiving, medical research, rapid prototyping, industrial design and quality control inspection, to name just a few.

What is 3D Scanning?

3D scanning is a method of digitalising physical objects to create 3-dimensional computational geometry (CAD). There are various scanning technologies used to achieve this, the main two being white light and laser.

What are its applications?

Industries which benefit from 3D scanning include, game creation, reverse engineering, heritage, the arts, industrial design, architectural survey, film and many more...

Are there any limitations?

3D scanners can capture almost anything you put in front of them large or small; however there are some limitations including, occluded areas, very shiny and very dark objects. There are normally workarounds for these types of subjects.

How long does scanning take?

We specialise in some of the fastest 3D scanners on the market. Each object is different and requires different amounts of post-processing work however typically models are created in hours or days, rather than weeks.

How much do 3D scanning services cost?

To receive a quotation or discuss the best solution for your requirements please call on +61 (0)3 9687 8638. Alternatively, email us your requirements and multiple high-resolution images of your proposed scan subject(s).

How much does a 3D scanner cost?

3D scanners vary greatly in cost (starting at around $3,000) depending on the specification you require. We are able to advise the best solution for your requiremetns.

With our knowledge and understanding of 3D scanning, we are able to provide 3D scanner technologies that work for you, feel free to contact us if you would like further details or to see if 3D scanning can benefit you.
