Film production 3D scanning services - UK specialists

Superscan3D specialise in 3D scanning services for film production. We use the very latest mobile 3D scanning technology to achieve incredible scan results (accurate up to 0.5mm!). Our compact state of the art equipment enables quick setup and tear down. This means we can quickly acquire the 3D assets you need, without taking hours to set up (In and out with no fuss!). 

Having worked in production for many years, we have a strong understanding of the industry and general production needs. We are very use to working 'In-Studio', 'On-Set' or 'On-Location'. We are highly familiar with production etiquette and take intellectual property very seriously. Hence we are always happy to work under an appropriate production NDA agreement.


Digital 3D Models - Film Production 3D Scanning Services


High-resolution 3D models of virtually anything!

The highly advanced 3D scanning system we use enables us to capture static objects from 30cm up to 4 meters (i.e. an average car). This high-end fully calibrated aerospace technology enables us to ensure a high level of scan accuracy (up to 0.5mm resolution). Additionally, being a digital technology means that the high level of accuracy attained in our 3D scan is directly transferred through to physical model outputs using 3D Printing and CNC MillingSuch accuracy often significantly reduces prop and set construction times, thus providing clients with a fast and cost effective solution.

3D Printed Models - Film Production 3D Scanning Services


3D scanning hand-sculpted maquettes & upscaling physical outputs

A technique that is often used in the film industry is the process of digital upscaling from a much smaller clay maquette. This enables a production sculptor to hand model the desired object in clay at a small scale (typically 1-4 feet high). We then 3D scan the object in order to create a digital master. This is then upscaled in software and either 3D printed of CNC milled.

Because 3D scanning, 3D printing and CNC milling are all digital technologies, total reproduction accuracy is ensured no matter what the scale! A previous example of this is a highly ornate set of  panels which were sculpted in clay approximately 1.5 meters long. Each panel was 3D scanned and then upscaled to a 4 meter long full size panel, using CNC milling (milled out of high density foam and then dressed on set).

Applying the right 3D scanning technology

There are three main 3D scanning technologies which tend to be used in the industry:

  • Photogrammetry 3D Scanning (3D body scanning)
  • Lidar Laser 3D Scanning (3D set scanning and large objects)
  • Handheld Hi-Res White Light/laser Scanning (Props, Construction, Set-Dec & Costume)

Making sure you apply the right 3D scanning technology to your particular application is critical to achieving the right end result on time and on budget. Talk to us about your particular requirements and we will happily advise accordingly.
