we 3D scan 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. Over the years we have 3D scanned a lot of interesting and unusual objects, small and large, dead and alive. We run a range of 3D scanners and tailor our technology to the job in hand, so that we always get results - and our data is always clean and of a high quality.


With our background in fine art and product design we are well placed to appreciate and understand creative projects.  We have worked with a large number of contemporary artists on a wide variety of projects - nothing is too big or too small - and whilst the technology we use is important, your idea is more so.


We have 3D scanned architectural models, building facades, scale landscapes, real landscapes.  With 3D scanning the world around you can easily be captured and used within the design process opening up new creative opportunities and also shortening your design cycle whilst improving accuracy.
