Questions to Ask when ing a 3D Scanning Services Provider! 


So you’ve searched Google and received a bunch of quotes from the growing list of 3D Scanning providers, as with all service providers the prices could vary enormously so how do you choose a 3D scanning service provider, what’s the difference between us and them, isn’t is just 3d scan data and pushing a button!

Here’s a list of questions to ask your 3D Scanning provider.

  • - What file formats are available?
  • - Can they supply multiple res?
  • - What resolution are you proposing?
  • - Are you processing data in-house or somewhere overseas?
  • - What level of data security do you have?
  • - Do you re topo the raw data?
  • - What projects have you worked on?
  • - Accuracy of equipment proposed?
  • - Noise of equipment proposed?
  • - References and/or credits?
  • - Will you sign a Confidentiality Agreement or NDA.

If you’re still not sure we’d recommend asking for sample data.

3D Scanning is not all about pressing a button and represents only 1/3 of the actual job which means the post processing is the important part and can make the difference between a job being successful or unsuccessful.
