Superscan 3D – UK leading film production 3D scanning specialists – We are able to digitally acquire everyday objects in 3D and reproduce identical replicas for set decoration and prop applications.
Set Decoration 3D Scanning & Fabrication
Set decoration 3D scanning is an incredibly powerful tool for set design within the film and television industry. Set Decorators, Prop Makers, Production Designers and Art Directors, can now quickly duplicated objects with incredible accuracy and realism (From 3D scan to 3D print or CNC milling).
Superscan 3D are able to scan virtually any solid object, small or large (from 30cm or larger). We then use the 3D data to output physical models at any scale. Originally developed for aerospace applications, the latest technology that we use is fully calibrated to ensure a consistent scan accuracy of up to 0.5mm resolution!
Additionally, being a none-contact technology enables us to scan delicate objects without any risk of damage. Hence it’s great for antique replicas, statues, ornate mouldings, busts, stone and wood carvings and numerous other objects.
Once we have digitally acquire your desired object we can either 3D print it from a wide selection of materials, or can CNC mill it if a large reproduction is required (usually from high density foam). For example, we could scan a 1 meter high sculpture and digitally upscale to a 5 meters, or other variation. We have used this process on many major productions in recent years. From smaller props on productions like Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ and ‘The Nutcracker and The Four Realms’, to large set elements such as ornate doorways and panels on ‘Tomb Raider’ and various other productions.
