Small things

Small objects are usually scanned using our structured light scanner and turntable. Together they can scan parts as small as 1-2 centimetres with great detail.

A Banana

A light-hearted test to assess the colour mapping capabilities of our structured light scanner. We fully 3D scanned a banana including colour textures and compared the result to a photograph of the banana. We came to the conclusion our scanning was better than our photography!


We have scanned many castings for a range of industries including the agricultural & automotive industry. Here’s an inlet manifold casting we scanned using out handheld scanning system.

Motorcycle fairing (bodywork) & helmet

Scanned using our handheld scanner in either structured light or laser scanning mode, the front fender and rear side panel fairing from a Suzuki GSX600F and a full face motorcycle helmet including visor.
