Hello from the Natural History Museum, London

Post by NHM_Imaging » Wed Feb 14, 2018 2:21 pm

Hi there. I stumbled across this site searching for something completely different!

Our team carries out 3D scanning at all scales (literally sub-micron to tens of metres)!
We can carry out laser and structured light scanning (the team is currently digitising whale skulls) using either a Faro Edge Arm, or Creaform Go!SCANS; we also do photogrammetry (although not very often), but also worked out a method for micro-photogrammetry in a scanning electron microscope.
We do fine-scale 3D data capture using confocal microscopy or via micro-CT.

Our largest project features here: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/news/2017 ... leton.html

Happy to answer questions and discuss further. If you need high end 3D scanning services in London, look us up. We have everything under one roof and a lot of it is also portable.
