3D scanning of small objects

3D scanning for small objects.

The smallest objects can be scanned with millimetric precision, reproducing all the details of form and texture.


Nowadays we enjoy the possibility of digitally reproducing any kind of object we want, whatever the material. We can reproduce almost all the elements of the life that surrounds us, many of them very concrete and defined (a suitcase, a bicycle or an Etruscan vase) and others more abstract and undefined as they are liquids, nebulas or movements.
All of them can be observed and studied, both in reality and in a virtual way. With a good digitization we can do it from any connected device.

The vast majority of 3D scanners do not achieve the precision needed to capture the smallest details of a few millimeters. Scanning with high performance 3D scanners allows us to achieve a virtual object exactly the same in size and texture as the original, regardless of whether it is large, medium or small.

At Scan3DCat we work with a precision of 0.05mm and a resolution of detail in the 3D mesh of 0.1mm. We present some small scanned objects for Scan3D and for which we have made 360º interactive presentations with which to be able to observe, from all around it, its topology (type, order and quantity of polygons) and its hyper-realistic texture.
3D meshes have been optimized to be used with real-time applications (RT), which require low density polygons and textures in PBR (Physically based rendering) format, compatible with the vast majority of 3D edition software, virtual reality (VR) and augmented (AR).
You can see them by clicking on each of the images. In each case, the actual sizes of the object are indicated, data that is extracted directly from the scanning process.
