3D Scanning in 
Art and Design

With 3D scanners, digitizing real world objects for art and design applications has never been easier. 3D scanning can be done quickly and accurately, without the need for targets or complex preparation.

Artists, graphic designers, and anybody involved in 3D modeling or design can rely on 3D scanners to deliver the ease of use and quality that even the most successful movies of our time have benefited from.

Explore some common applications



Eventually all historical artifacts go bad if they are not preserved. 3D scanning now makes it possible to preserve artifacts in ways that are not as susceptible to corruption and not affected by natural decay. 3D scanners can capture the object and digitize it. This means that an exact replica can be recreated into a 3D model for people to enjoy in the future.

3D Scanning will capture sufficient and precise 3D data from different directions, which contributes to the restoration of culture relics that may have been accidentally damaged. Experts can then virtually restore the heritages through 3D software.

Product Design

Professional designers and project managers can use 3D scanning to rapidly modify their designs. 3D scanners are easy to use and generate precise measurements results, which greatly accelerates the time to market for newly designed products.

3D Scant-to-Print

Typically, 3D modeling software is used for creating 3D models for printing. It requires professional 3D modelers to conduct the time-consuming and expensive works. However, with 3D scanning product designers and engineers can scan both small and large objects to create precise and printable 3D models.
