3D Scanning Services & Physical Replica Solutions

From 3D Scan To Virtual Reality 3D Model! We have 3D scanned this vase and then converted it into an interactive 3D model that you can Rotate (1 finger), Move Up & Down (Two finger slide) and Zoom IN & OUT (two finger spread). Allow up to 20 seconds for the model to load.

What Are 3D Scanning Services?

3D scanning services are used to precisely analyse real-world physical objects, obtaining highly accurate three dimensional data on an objects form. Superscan3D use the very latest high resolution 3D scanning technologies to capture real-world objects in super-high definition. Our 3D scanning systems have an amazing resolution capture accuracy of up to 0.5mm (i.e. accurate up to half a millimetre!). Once the scan has been performed, we then use this precise 3D digital data to produce highly accurate three-dimensional digital models using specialist 3D mastering software.

3D scanning services can be used for a wide variety of applications. Typical examples include: producing high accuracy physical replicas and models of original objects at any scale, sculpture enlargements, fine art reproductions in bronze or stone, producing precise moulds for heritage conservation repairs, sculpture surveys, in-situ stone masonry, virtual reality 3D models, and the list continues. In addition to scanning services, we also provide 3D printing and CNC milling services, in order to convert our amazing 3D scans into high accuracy physical models at any scale.

Who Are Superscan 3D?

As one of the UK's leading 3D scanning service specialists, we provide end-to-end solutions in the following areas (Click the below links to find out more).

 

How Much Does A Hi-Res 3D Scan Cost?

Although the high-end Creaform 3D scanners we use costs upwards £35,000 per system, you might be surprised to discover that our 3D scans start from as little as £295 + VAT (i.e. for a 3D scan of a none complex form). Additionally, we have a company pricing policy where we won't be beaten on price for a like for like solution. This means you can enjoy total peace of mind that you are getting excellent value for money. Furthermore, it is important to also consider that every object is different, and hence needs to be quoted for individually. Therefore, our 3D scanning costs are generally based upon the following five factors:

  • Size of object - We scan objects from 30cm (minimum) up to 5 meters
  • Complexity of object - Level of detail and line of sight considerations
  • Material type challenges - Colour, type of texture, shiny surfaces
  • Geographic location Where is the object to be scanned (Location)
  • Level of 'Post-Scan 3D Digital Cleanup & Mastering' required

Turning 3D Scans Into Accurate Physical Bronze Replicas

We are able to 3D scan objects and then reproduce them as virtually identical physical replicas. For example; we can 3D scan a 1 meter high sculpture and then reproduce it as a 1:1 scale replica, or perhaps a 2 meter high replica or another variation. The possibilities are virtually endless!

Superscan3D have an established reputation for delivering high accuracy 3D scans, and then producing highest quality physical replicas in bronze, stone and other materials. Find out more about our bronze replica process here.

 

We Only Use High Resolution 3D Scanning Technology

Unlike many of our competitors, the Creaform 3D scanning systems we use are a fully calibrated technology. This means that every 3D scan we perform has a guaranteed resolution accuracy of up to + or - 0.5mm. The below image shows us carrying out a high resolution 3D scan of a bust at a popular National Trust museum, followed by another image of our final finished 3D scan.

3D Scanning Services Tailored For You!

We work with a broad cross-section of professional clients from a wide range of industries. Hence projects are often wide-ranging. Some clients simply require a high accuracy 3D scan of an object, supplied in OBJ or STL file format. Other clients want a complete end-to-end '3D scan to physical replica solution'. It's therefore essential to fully understand each individual client requirement from the outset. Most importantly, we always take a consultative approach to qualify specific needs in detail, thus ensuring the right solution is put in place from the outset, to ensure the right end result.
