Our 3D scanning services involve one of our experienced engineers using the latest, state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology to create a digitised 3D version of your vehicle, part or item. We are able to produce detailed 3D scans for a wide range of applications of all sizes, generating exact data which we can then use for reverse engineering and/ or 3D printing purposes.

With the technology behind 3D scanning constantly developing and improving, it’s now one of the fastest ways to produce 3D models from all manner of objects. Working like a video camera, a 3D scanner allows us to scan not just the surface of an object, but its geometry as well, so that it can be worked into a high-precision model.

Combine this cutting-edge technology with our 40 years’ of experience in engineering, and we can apply 3D scanning to an array of sectors. From Maritime to Medicine, Military to Motorsport & Automotive the applications are endless.

Some of our recent projects:

Teeth Mould

We were asked to 3D scan a set of teeth moulds for a medical school, which we could then manipulate for training purposes and 3D print multiple testing moulds. We were approached based on our extensive engineering background, which meant we were able to manage the project in-house from the initial scan, all the way through to printing.

Antique Chair

Our client’s treasured 19th century armchair was about to undergo restoration and repairs.  To ensure they, and the restorer, had an accurate record of its condition, and details of the patterns and joinery used in its construction, we completed a full 3D scan including high-resolution photographic texture mapping.  This allowed the restorer to reverse engineer complex joinery, and ensure the wood colour and grain direction were matched after restoration ensuring seamless repairs and reinforcement of its delicate construction.

Motorbike Helmet

A racing enthusiast approached us with a challenge to 3D scan and model their racing helmet in preparation for experimental modification to improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise.  We completed a detailed geometric and textured scan of the helmet, resulting in a complete CAD model of its exterior surface geometry.  This model data will be used to develop 3D printed prototypes of fins and ducts designed by the client.

Handgun (Replica)

A client within the film industry asked us to 3D scan and print a specific handgun, which they needed for a film they were producing. Due to the amount of these specific firearms they required, our 3D scanning and printing services was the perfect solution for the job at hand – offering a cost-effective solution, detailed alternative to the real guns.

Skateboard

3D scanning can be used to preserve the past as well as build the future.  Our client who specialises in vintage and retro collectibles and memorabilia asked us to explore how items can be preserved but still be used and enjoyed.  We 3D scanned a retro skateboard to show how its condition and original artwork can be recorded to allow repair and restoration in the future, ensuring any wear and tear can be repaired faithful to the original design by reverse engineering its original condition.

Ammo Box

To support the production of both physical and digital props for a visual effects client, a number of original artefacts were collected as reference items.  EKA Limited scanned these items, such as this ammunition storage box, to allow lightweight replicas to be manufactured as physical props and digital assets to be used in composite scenes in the final production.  This ensured accurate replication of typical wear & tear and patina found on original items while preserving their condition for future reference.

Using the latest 3D Scanning Technology

We use the high-tech Artec Leo 3D Scanner to ensure we’re achieving the best possible scanning results. Its interactive, AI-driven software gives us the chance to see real-time, HD previews of the model, while its wireless design gives us the flexibility to scan almost any object. Our engineers are able to produce detailed 3D scans for a wide range of applications of all sizes, generating exact data which we can then use for reverse engineering and/ or 3D printing purposes.
