Thinglab Scanning Process
We are always keen to discuss your projects and to give you some guidance on what would be the best solution for you.
We pride ourselves on giving the best possible advice and guidance on what how to use 3D scan data and how to achieve the desired results. Get in contact and we would be more than happy to discuss what our scanners can do and how it can be utilised. We will come up with the best approach to suit you and provide you with a clear quote and time frame
Performed either on site or in our Footscray studio. Using our diverse range of scanners we are able to achieve fantastic results.
Our diverse range of 3D scanners can scan objects from as small as dental screws right up to large heavy industrial equipment such as trains. Our knowledge and experience using these scanners means we are efficient and are able to produce high quality results
Reverse Engineering, sculpting and design consultancy are just a small selection of the kinds of services we offer.
The industry leading software we use coupled with our experience means that what we can do with 3D scan data is vast.
We can simply scan an object and provide you with an STL file which can easily be 3D printed (check out our 3D printing services). We can alter, manipulate and sculpt data based on your requirements and projects.
We can Reverse Engineer your scanned object to produce a full parametric model.
Have a look at our Reverse Engineering page to see what is possible
There are many different file formats we can produce all that have specific application. Step files, OBJ, STL to name a few.

Frequently Asked Questions
3D scanning is a method of digitising physical objects to create 3-dimensional computational geometry (CAD). There are various scanning technologies used to achieve this, the main two being white light and laser.
Industries such as game creation, reverse engineering, heritage, the arts, industrial design, architectural survey and film are all benefiting from the advantages of 3D scanning.
3D scanners can capture almost anything you put in front of them large or small; however there are some limitations including, occluded areas, very shiny and very dark objects. There are normally workarounds for these. Please contact us if you require any further information.
We specialise in some of the fastest 3D scanners on the market. Each object is different and requires different amounts of post-processing work, however typically models are created in hours or days, rather than weeks.
To receive a quote or discuss the best solution for your requirements please contact us, ensuring you include images of your proposed scan subject(s). Please include any specific requirements including file formats, and the end use application of the data. If possible, please also state your deadline.
