Fine Art Sculpture 3D Scanning Services – Amazing New Opportunities For Contemporary Artists & Sculptors
Latest high resolution 3D scanning technology opens new doors for contemporary fine art. Recent technology advancements combined with specialist knowledge and expertise, deliver new commercial opportunities for Artists and Sculptors.
Using the very latest none-contact 3D scanning technology, Superscan3D are able to scan original works of art at very high resolution accuracy (up to 0.5mm). As such, we are able to generate millimeter perfect 3D digital facsimiles of original sculptures, capturing the Artists original touch and expression.
Once we have carried out the 3D scan, we can export the data to super accurate physical output devices (3D printers or CNC milling robots) in order to produce an exact replica. Additionally, because the 3D scan generated by the 3D scanner is digital, it can be re-scaled to any output size. Hence an original sculpture if 2 feet in height, can be accurately reproduced at a 10 feet tall scale.
This makes 3D scanning a brilliant tool for private commission enlargements of existing works, as well as limited edition copies. Final physical outputs (from 3D printing or CNC milling) can be used as ‘Mould Masters’ for bronze casting, resin casting, stone milling and a range of additional applications.
Fine Art Sculpture 3D Scanning Services – Benefits For Artists & Sculptors
The 3D scanning technology we use was originally developed for the aerospace industry, hence the accuracy of 3D scans is very high. The 3D digital data we capture can be used for various artist applications. One very useful application is the ability to UP or DOWN scale sculptures and works of art. For example, we can scan a 1 meter high sculpture, and then digitally upscale it to make it 3 meters high, keeping all the same proportions.
We could then produce a virtually exact replica of the original, only at the new scale, using 7 axis CNC milling technology (another service we can help you with). This highly proven technique also provides an efficient means of producing moulds for bronze cast (i.e. for major commissions and public exhibition projects).
Additionally, we are able to capture an artists work in vibrant 24-Bit colour, which can then be used to help artists promote their work online (below is an example).
