3D scanning

sample & hold is a 3D scanning service company with offices in central London and North Yorkshire. We use the latest 3D scanning hardware and software and we are continuously developing new solutions in our studio for a wide variety of 3D scanning applications. We know every project requires a unique approach and our main priority is to work with our clients to satisfy their individual application. Each member of our team has over ten years of experience working on 3D scanning and digital production projects, so you can be assured we can deliver exactly what you need.

people

Whether you require full body or simply head scans we can provide a range of people 3D scanning services for film, vfx, computer games or physical production. We use the latest structured light 3D scanners as well as our custom built camera array to capture instantaneous expressions - all in full colour.

objects

At sample & hold we are asked to 3D scan a wide range of objects which are then used as the building blocks for design projects. If you have a scale model, a full size prototype, or even an existing product that you need to capture, our 3D scanners  will get the data you need.

sculpture

3D scanning and digital design can be a powerful tool for artists, designers and architects. At sample & hold we offer a tailored 3D scanning service to meet your requirements; whether you need an art piece 3D scanned and then scaled for an edition or production, or a model 3D scanned for further editing on the computer, we can help.

what we do


We are passionate about 3D scanning and would love to talk to you about your idea or project - and work with you to make it a reality.

At sample & hold we realise that 3D scanning isn't just about the equipment, like any tool it’s about how you use it and how it fits into a larger project work flow. With our years of experience we are able to advise on your project for all manners of downstream processes, and if you prefer we can also manage your whole project for you. Whether it is for physical or digital production we have the experience to take your project from idea to completion.

Whatever you require we can make our knowledge and experience a resource for you.

Our client work spans the full spectrum from individual artists and start-up companies to international blue chips and leading museums. Recent projects include full body scanning to create computer game characters for one of the world's biggest computer company's, 3D scanning intricate museum sculptures for use at the London Olympics and live capture of animals for leading British artists, and the film industry.

Whether it's a 360 degree 3D scan of a human body or head, sculpture reproduction, museum archiving, character creation for a computer game or film or a unique art project, we are passionate about 3D scanning and would love to talk to you about your idea or project - and work with you to make it a reality.

structured light

We operate four structured light 3D scanners.  They are robust and flexible, meaning we can travel around the world and be ready to 3D scan anything from a coin to a full body with the same kit.  The nice thing about structured light 3D scanners is their precision and ability to deal with complex geometry and surface properties.

camera array

We have developed our own photogrammetry camera array capable of capturing true 3D data and colour data as quick as a camera flash.  An ideal solution for head 3D scanning, multiple expressions and more obscure 3D scanning applications which require a very fast capture time.

photography

We offer a full reference photography service.  Using polarising filters on both the camera lens and flash lights we capture cross-polarised image sets - diffuse, spectacular and then a modelling pass.  An industry standard technique in the film industry this can be an invaluable resource in all manner of projects.
