Our 3D data capture systems help to replace antiquated manual processes that are costly and slow. With our technology, data can be captured in meaningful ways that were not previously possible e.g. face scanning for eyewear. Our mission is to fuse our scanning expertise with specialist knowledge from within a range of vertical applications. Customized solutions frequently prove to be more cost-effective than off-the-shelf products, tailoring your solution to the specific requirements of your organisation.
Here are some of the markets we’re engaged in and their values:
We are in the early stages of developing a 270 degree face scanner which will be widely deployable in the eyewear industry to support the growth of custom eyewear and enhanced customer service.
Our 3D scanning systems are contributing to huge advancements in access control and identification, detecting unique human characteristics such as facial spacing.
This presents the possibility of a non-contact approach to the acquisition of highly accurate data, offering a hygienic and easy-to-operate set of solutions that opens-up biometric data capture to a whole new level.
3D manufacturing is a growing trend in many industry sectors, ranging from medical applications and orthotics through to fashion and jewelry. We engage with global brands through to disruptive start-ups to explore new commercial potential for 3D printing and personalized manufacturing.
Forensic tools and technologies including 2D photography, adhesive lifters, tape measures, and plaster-casting have been in use for decades. The arrival of new 3D scanning technology brings a new dimension to many of the tasks traditionally handled by these methods. Our technology provides the forensic team with the instant ability to collect permanent 3D images of crime scene details. For example, capturing an accurate footprint impression in sand can be completed in a matter of seconds, with the file stored securely on an officer’s laptop or tablet.
Our 3D technology originates from applications within the medical sector, detecting the volume and tissue structure of wounds. Now, our technology is used to facilitate numerous medical research projects and real-world applications. Our hardware takes scans quickly, with high levels of accuracy. Originally developed for the task of scanning human skin surfaces, Fuel3D data capture delivers an accuracy that is also rich in texture and color acquisition.
Additionally, our technology is ideal for taking scientific measurements; subjects can be captured in 3D data, then measured and monitored over time.
3D data capture presents the opportunity to incorporate virtual try-ons into the customer experience and tailor garments to the exact requirements of the client. In the jewelry industry, our technology can be utilized to convert intricate designs into customised accessories.
Film, Gaming and Virtual Reality
In the visual effects and gaming/VR sectors, 3D data capture presents the opportunity to scan and reproduce actors, real-world objects and textures in the virtual world, reducing the labor costs associated with complex 3D modelling and rendering.
The inherent accuracy of our 3D data capture allows the replication and preservation of existing artefacts in rich texture and color. Our capture speed of less than 0.1 seconds allows the rapid preservation of articles of historical significance.
In dentistry, 3D data capture can be layered with x-rays and intraoral 3D scans to provide accurate pre and post imaging for dental surgery. Our capture speed of less than 0.1 seconds allows for rapid generation of pre and post imaging, serving as a point of reference for the patient. The technology can also be used to create highly accurate 3D models of molds and impressions for the purpose of manufacturing and archiving.
