Recent Project: Sarcophagus at Lincoln Castle
Two of Central Scanning engineers were recently on the BBC's 'The One Show'. They scanned a Sarcophagus at Lincoln Castle and were also there at the time the sarcophagus was opened to see the body inside!
Archaeologists found the coffin within the walls of a previously unknown church which is thought to date back more than 1,000 years. Once the lid is totally removed, the 3D scanner will be used again to give a better picture of the contents. Take a look at the Sarcophagus at Lincoln Castle >>

Recent Project: Digital Fountain at Westfield
Central Scanning assist reknowned designers Jason Bruges Studio with the creation of the Digital Fountain at Westfield Stratford City
London based Jason Bruges Studio were developing a unique water feature as a focal point within the landscape at Westfield Stratford City. The brief for the 12 metre tall ‘Digital Fountain’ was to make the look as realistic as possible taking into account the movement of water and the environmental effects such as wind and sunlight around it.
Central Scanning were contacted to see if we could scan moving water in a fountain set up in the Studio's workshop space. Not having done this before and always interested in a challenge, we went to London armed with 4 ARTEC 3D Scanners to see what we could do. Take a look at the Digital Fountain at Westfield project >>
