Museums

3D scanning allows museums and collections to retain complete control of the work

From building rapid prototype models and producing casting moulds, creating precise replicas from your original model, or using the scan data to aid repairs if required, 3D scanning can help.

• Pieces can be scaled up, scaled down, sectioned, reproduced, and adapted for whatever is required, quickly, accurately and cost effectively.
• 3D digital archive for records, insurance or restoration purposes.
• Scan data can be used if the original is damaged to aid perfect repairs.

Benefits of 3D Optical Scanning for museums and collections include;

Accuracy & Flexibility

• Optical scanners can deliver a scan accuracy of 0.040mm.
• The scan data can be scaled up or down as required. We have accurately scaled a 300mm sculpture up to 20 metres for a fabricated iconic landmark piece.
• Helps deliver a true & accurate representation of the artefact; something that cannot be produced through traditional modeling.
• Your experts can sit with our engineers and clean up the artifact scans digitally if required. You retain full control.

Insurance & Restoration

• 3D digital archive for records, insurance or restoration purposes.
• Scan data can be used if the original is damaged to aid perfect repairs
• Data is owned by yourselves and the uses of this data are limitless.

Increasing commercial opportunities

• 3D rendered images can be produced as a sales or presentation tool.
• The scan can be sectioned,ie; to mount sculptures on walls or create scaled busts
• Small artefacts can be scanned and scaled up to create large display pieces.
• Faster and incredibly accurate way to reproduce accurate replicas from the original artefact.
• Moulds for casting can be produced direct from the data – no need to create models.
• The data can be used to deliver 3D interactive computer models.
• Manufacturing drawings or files can be created to help with manufacture.
