Artec Ambassadors Central Scanning are proud to announce it is supporting two new 3D printer resellers. One being in Portugal (4D Virtual Lab). The other in the Republic of Ireland (3D Print Ireland). Furthermore, it is hoped with Central Scanning’s expertise, we can expand the availability and knowledge of Artec 3D products to Portugal and Ireland.
3D Printing Resellers
4D Virtual Lab | Portugal
4D Virtual Lab have for years created Virtual Reality experiences with a mix of drone footage, photogrammetry, 360 environment scans and aerial surveying. Their projects range from Cultural Heritage, BIM to Real Estate.
Tiago Queiroz (Production Manager at 4D Virtual Lab) comments:
“4D Virtual Lab main focus has been producing virtual tours for museums, art galleries as well as heritage monuments, we can provide immersive solutions to enhance the experience when, virtual visiting the space. Our main focus is developing tools for those who are enable to physically visit the place. We also include 3D content on our tours, this can be any statue, object from the museum collection.”
One of their exciting projects involved creating a 3D virtual Tour of Museu Nacional dos Coches in Lisbon. The Museum has one of the most impressive collections of historical coaches in the world. Built in 1905, it houses coaches dating back from the 16th Century and also documents their development through to the 19th Century. Furthermore, 4D Virtual Lab’s work was well received with much media coverage in Portugal.

3D Printing Ireland
Keith Davis (Managing Director at 3D printing Ireland) comments:
Another project was to 3D scan Kateryn Winnick for the History Channel’s “Vikings” TV series. The scan was done in minutes using the Artec Space Spider 3D scanner for its superb detail and colour reproduction. The resultant 3D model was then 3D printed full size. Also, it was used by their make up department as part of their production pipeline. This compares with the life casting method used before. Which is not only messy and time consuming, but also uncomfortable for the actors and actresses.

Lastly, this 3D scan of a Harp in Collins Barracks in Dublin, dates back to the 18th Century. It shows some of their work in the cultural heritage sector and resides in the National Museum of Ireland. It is using a combination of the Artec Eva to capture surrounding and then the Artec Spider to capture the smaller details and combined both meshes.
