Classic Car 3D Scanning
Classic Car 3D Scanning
Discover how classic car 3D scanning can help you safeguard against serious accident damage!
What would you do if your classic car was involved in a major collision? Perhaps you own a high value investment classic, where body panels and fittings are no longer available. It's a sobering thought, but one which must cross the mind of every classic car owner from time to time. Hence, what is a logical solution to this problem?
Superscan3D, one of the UK's leading 3D scanning specialists, offer a highly innovative solution to this common problem. We are able to travel to your location and 3D scan your car in individual body panel sections, at high resolution accuracy (accurate up to + or - 0.5mm). This enables us to capture a 3D digital blueprint of your vehicles individual body panel sections (panel by panel). Then, if the unthinkable ever happens, these 3D scan files can be used to produce a suitable panel-buck via means of CNC milling, to enable a reverse engineering replacement panel to be produced.
"This amazing high precision 3D scanning technology was originally developed for the aerospace industry and is accurate up to + or - 0.5mm"
Once we have carried out a 3D scan of your vehicles main body panels, we then save each 3D digital data file onto a standard USB memory stick, which you can then safely store. Hence, you then have a high-accuracy 3D digital backup of your actual vehicles main panels, should you ever need it!
Common parts that we often get asked to 3D scan are:
- Whole exterior body-shells
- Individual body panels
- Chassis and suspension parts
- Interior panels
- Engine bay compartment
- Soft & hard top removable roofs

Other Possible Benefits and Applications - Classic Car 3D Scanning - Body Panel Reverse Engineering
Classic car 3D scanning can also be used to produce fibreglass replacement body panels, using the same process described above. Original car panels can then be removed and stored safely, whilst replacement fibreglass body panels are bolted in place of the originals. This might be preferable for day-to-day use, or sporting events, where it may not be possible to get insurance. We understand that using fibreglass panels may also be a way of reducing weight, with potential benefits for handling and performance.
Classic Car 3D Scanning - A high resolution 3D digital backup of your pride and joy to enable reverse engineering, should the unthinkable ever happen!
So whether you're a professional classic car restorer looking to reverse-engineer a panel, or perhaps a private classic car owner, please don't hesitate to give us a call in order to find out more.
