360 Degree Scanning

This involves placing your object in a lighting controlled room and using a turntable which enables the object to rotate 360 degrees. A number of photographs are taken from a special type of camera which is placed in a fixed position to ensure fluent image capture of the item. When digitised another specialised piece of software is used to enhance and clean the object and to produce a 3D effect.

This technology is managed by Mr Anthony Anderson
