If you have an object which is proving difficult to replicate using 3d modelling software then scanning is ideal to capture your object in a digital form.
Why use a scanner?
If you have an object which is proving difficult to replicate using 3d modelling software. then scanning is ideal to capture your object in a digital form. We use a dental lab scanner to obtain high resolution scan data that can be processed and modified using modelling software to give you endless creative possibilities.
How does scanning work?
We have a structured light scanner that uses blue LED light to capture the surface of an object. As light is projected onto the surface, data is captured to produce an exact geometric reconstruction of the surface edge. Ideal for smaller objects with narrow and deep areas.
Once the scan data is captured, it is checked and processed into a polygon mesh that can be imported into most 3d modelling software, for your own modelling needs.
Highly reflective and transparent surfaces can be difficult to scan as the light will reflect from the object back into the cameras in the scanner resulting in gaps in the scan. A fine power will be sprayed onto objects like this to reduce the reflectiveness of the object. This will be removed and the object cleaned before being returned.
