3D Scanning Church & Cathedral Artefacts

3D Scanning Church & Cathedral Artefacts

Superscan use one of the worlds most powerful mobile 3D scanning systems in order to 3D scan church and cathedral artefacts at incredible resolution accuracy. This amazing technology enables us to reproduce exact 3D digital replicas of objects. We can then use the same data to produce exact 1:1 scale physical replicas of virtually any object, using either 3D printing or CNC milling. Once we have converted the 3D scan into a physical copy, we are then able to hand-finish using traditional hand finishing techniques in order to produce a near identical replica.

This technique enables actual original objects to be stored securely, removing the risk of objects being stollen or vandalised. Hence, 3D scanning rare objects of significant importance is a highly effective way of preserving and protecting rare objects and our cultural history. It also enables a super-accurate 3D digital master of an object to be stored on a USB stick for safe keeping, just in case the unthinkable ever happens. 

Additionally, the same approach can be used for many conservation and restoration applications such as: ornate stone and wood carvings, ornate metal castings, ornate stone masonry, sculptures and many other objects.
