What is 3D Scanning?

3D scanning is a fast, accurate and non-invasive way of producing a digital 3D model of a real world object.
Our handheld, portable 3D scanners use the latest cutting edge blue light technology to capture every tiny detail, at 0.05mm accuracy.
Objects are scanned down to a fine resolution of 0.1mm, precisely capturing its physical shape without the need for intrusive tracking stickers like many other scanners.
The scan information of your object is recorded as cloud point data. We will then post-process and fuse this data into a usable polygon mesh model. This mesh is ready for import into 3D modelling and CAD software packages. The produced model can be directly used for 3D printing, animation and visualisation purposes.

3D Scanning Experts

3D Scanning Hub

Our 3D Scanning team; 3D Scanning Hub (part of 3D Printing Ireland) are experts in scanning objects large and small, from tiny parts to actors, animals, vehicles & buildings.
Our 3D scanners have been used for many purposes, including reverse engineering parts, special effects, scans of actors for prosthetics, artefact preservation, architectural preservation, rapid prototyping amongst others.

The Artec Eva 3D Scanner


    Capturing and simultaneously processing up to an impressive two million points for per second. Eva also provides high accuracy – up to 0.1 mm.


    Eva uses white structured light technology, making it totally safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.


    Scan in brilliant colour and high 3D resolution.


    Our lightweight scanner can be transported easily for on site scanning.

Our Artec Spider 3D Scanners


    Make extremely accurate 3D models of small industrial objects or sections of larger objects in fine detail.


    Fast Scanning speed 7.5fps. High accuracy does not have to be time consuming. Artec Space Spider process up to one million points per second.


    Make full colour replicas of your object. Impressive 3D resolution 0.1mm, astonishing precision.


    Our lightweight scanner can be transported easily for on site scanning.

We are the foremost providers of high-resolution 3D scanning services in Ireland and beyond. We specialise in the very accurate digitisation of small to medium sized objects. A scanned high-poly digital mesh can exported out in any standard 3D file format, with full colour if needed. We also offer a file conversion service for these would require a NURBS model for the likes of solidworks, etc.

Your parts can be sent to our workshop to be scanned, processed and returned to you in a quick turn around time.
Alternatively, our 3D scanners are completely portable, so we can go wherever you need us to be. Great for objects that are too delicate or permanent to move, or for scanning people at a specific location.

As part of a reverse engineering or product design pipeline, the scanned mesh can be converted into a solid CAD model, and exported as sldprt., stp. or igs. files


We can travel to scan location or you can post item to us

We take the 3D Scan and capture cloud point data.

We align the scans and create a highly accurate polygon mesh
