Constructing Three-Dimensional Digital Models of Small Objects, Laser Method

3d ScannerWe use a NextEngine 3D Laser Scanner to collect three-dimensional spatial data. Maximum object size is 22.5” x 16.75”. Multiple scans are made from an object and combined to create a complete 3D model. Non-reactive, non-biological powder may be applied to the surface of the object to facilitate accurate scanning; this powder is removed with high-pressure air or deionized water (exact method to be determined upon consultation with client).

Fee includes sample preparation, laser scanning, 3D model assembly and transmittal of data to customer. First sample in a request is charged the max rate, which includes some equipment set-up, consumable supplies, and equipment tear down. Fee of return shipping of scanned items not included.

Cost: $35.00 for the first sample, $25.00 for each additional sample.
