Our 3D scanning team harness a wide range of scanning technologies to scan anything from museum artifacts to buildings, clay models to supermodels.
Our expert team are based in our Shoreditch, London studios but can work on location worldwide. We have a wealth of experience in the field with both laser and structured light scanning technologies.
Applications include asset creation for games and animation, replication of historical and artistic objects and digitising human subjects for both moving image and 3D-printing projects.
From 360 degree scans of a human head to detailed scans of a delicate sculpture, assets for game creation, or inspection of engineered parts, our scanning team can help you find the best solution.
Frequently Asked Questions about 3D Scanning
What is 3D scanning?
3D scanning is a method of digitalising physical objects to create 3-dimensional geometry (CAD). There are various scanning technologies used to achieve this, the main two being white light and laser.
What are its applications?
We are working with industries including games, reverse engineering, heritage, the arts, industrial design, architectural surveying and film-making. 3D scan data can be post-processed by Inition to provide assets for real-time graphics (e.g. character animation or augmented reality), high-detail CGi/VFX work or for 3D printing, to name just a few of the many possibilities.
Are there any limitations?
With the right approach, 3D scanners can capture almost anything you put in front of them large or small; however there are some limitations including very shiny and very dark objects. There are normally workarounds for these types of objects.
How long does it take?
We operate some of the fastest 3D scanners on the market and pride ourselves on quick turnaround times, drawing on our many years of expertise to work out the right approach and workflow for your project. Each scan is different and requires varying amounts of post-processing work, however most scans are turned around in days, rather than weeks.
How much does it cost?
We charge based on the time it takes to scan and post process a project and on the delivery specification. The best way for us to calculate a price is for you to email us images of your proposed scanning subject along with your final CAD model requirements.
