Preserving Buildings and Artefacts

3D scanning is one of the fastest and effective ways to create 3D models. By scanning physical objects in a non-contact process, the laser and light-based scanner records and captures angles and distances. Therefore, gathering valuable data that can be used to reconstruct the objects.

When it comes to the heritage preservation sector 3D scanners can be used to:

  • Capture pivotal details of buildings, surfaces, and architectural details
  • Measure the changes or deterioration of construction over time
  • Highlight areas of structural integrity on buildings
  • Identify vulnerable areas of other historical structures/materials/objects
  • Recreate historical sites or artefacts in virtual/augmented reality

3D Scanners to Rent

Central Scanning can support you with finding the right 3D scanner for your project. If you only need the scanner temporarily, you may wish to consider our 3D scanner hire service. This is perfect for projects with shorter timelines.

Renting a 3D scanner means that you can have access to the highest quality machinery equipped with industry-leading technology. You can reap the benefits of this for a smaller price tag and avoid investing a larger sum of money in something that you won’t use again. You also won’t have the responsibility of service/maintenance costs that sometimes come with the regular usage of a 3D scanning machine.
