3D Scanning

The Basics

At Ultra studio, we offer 3D scanning services, usually as part of a larger CG project but also as separate, stand alone projects if required.

3D Scanning allows us to capture real world objects, and recreate these as physically accurate digital models. We either use our Revopoint 3D scanner, or photogrammetry to capture point cloud and surface data. We then use the scanned data as a starting point to rebuild a computer-generated 3D model of the product. This part of the process is particularly important when we’re working on projects that require a photo real finish.

Technology

As a small and versatile team we are alway keen to experiment and learn new skills. We thrive on learning new techniques and that includes 3D scanning and photogrammetry.

When working on a project that involves 3D scanning a product, we will always start with setting up the product under as flat lighting as possible, this ensures clean photography, that retains colour and texture details. We will then photograph or scan the product from all angles. Sometimes this involves us fabricating a plinth or stand and nearly always requires a turntable. Using Agisoft Photoscan we can build a point cloud, and a dense geometry mesh, from which we build the 3D model.

3D Scanning

Our producer will be able to discuss your project’s 3D scanning requirements with you, they will suggest 3D scanning if your project requires a photo real finish and if you don’t already have a digital model of your product.

New Balance NB 237 and Polesdon are two great examples of how we used 3D scanning to ensure accuracy. On both projects, our client wanted the end imagery and animations to be photo real. We were sent product samples on both occasions allowing us to 3D Scan, accurately measure and photograph them for reference. You can read about both projects in detail on our projects page.
