By utilizing a laser beam, a 3-D scanner will collect thousands of points of information that can be formed to create a virtual reproduction of a person or object. These points are re-assembled using software specifically designed to manipulate this information. A scanned object can be rescaled and infinitely modified. By using specialized programs such as FreeForm, the information received from the scan can be used to create an entirely new version of an original object. It can also be refined and modified for a specific application. The use of scanning technology allows Sculptors to quickly move a traditionally sculpted piece into the digital realm as well. This allows the Artist to enhance a rough sculpture by mirroring parts to create a finished piece in less time than traditional sculpture. Because our ASaP Sculptors are experienced in the traditional methods of sculpting, as well as the new digital methods, they are better equipped to take full advantage of the latest high tech programs. They will also save you money and time by knowing when it is optimum to use 3-D scanning methods or when using traditional sculpting would be a better, more viable solution.
