Production details

Central Scanning's team of highly experienced Application Engineers provide unique scanning and 3D Printing services using a range of Artec 3D and Zeiss (formally known as Steinbichler) scanners and Stratasys printers. Their scanners work from line of sight and can scan objects of almost any scale - from teeth to buildings - in a range of detail up to a resolution of 16 microns. All their equipment is mobile meaning they can scan offsite or at their workshop in Bromsgrove. They are able to 3D print in a variety of materials up to a maximum size of 16 x 16 x 14 inches and have a vapour finishing station which smooths surfaces of printed objects in preparation for finishing. They also have high end laser etching and engraving facilities and work with mints around the world to produce coin dies. Their minimum order cost is £150.
