BDILab has developed techniques for 3D scanning a wide variety of complex and interesting forms over a number of years. We can capture 3D geometry by photogrammetry, lidar and laser scanning.

3D Scanning

Service & Consultancy

Almost all 3D scanning processes have limitations. The practicality of scanning parts depends on surface finish and gloss level, line of sign, size and complexity. In almost all cases there is a solution to allow the perfect digitisation of a part. The key is having the right technology and the right know-how. At BDILab we are proud to say we have both. 

Art History & Hollywood

Using a wide range of CAD software allows us to take on the most challenging reverse engineering and sculptural CAD design challenges. These models can then be used to reproduce highly detailed parts by a number of production techniques. If you need NURBS data or you want to develop some specific geometry from your scan data we are very happy to help with that too.

  • Entirely non invasive 3D capture of any surface.

  • Scan data captured to a resolution of 0.3mm accuracy. 

  • We scan parts as small as a wheel spinner to an entire car. 

  • Scan data processing and conversion to NURBS formats.

  • Data hand over in the formats: .STL .STEP .IGES .X_T.

  • Free initial consultation to discuss your project.

  • Fast turn around on 3D Scanning. 

  • On site and off site services available.


BDI Lab has exactly the right digital manufacture tools for the job, and we really know how to use them. Our team draw on software used in 3D animation to produce sculptural parts as well as parametric engineering software for technical tight tolerance parts. Combined with our 3D scanning technology and know-how we can bring any project to life.

“As a product designer I find getting hands on with my 3D design super important, BDI was able to support with low cost malleable 3D prints which they later 3D scanned, these guys offer a mega service.” 


—  Joseph, Headphone designer



  • Our services are priced more competitively than any other 3D scanning service in the south east. 

  • We have a reactive team on standby and can turn your job around on the same day if needed.

  • All of our 3D scanning and 3D printing services are quoted as fixed price jobs.

  • Our team have developed techniques for 3D printing and scanning delicate, complex objects over the last decade. 

  • Customer satisfaction is a must at BDI Lab. If you are not satisfied we will keep working until you are. 

  • Our equipment is fully portable so we can scan objects at location, alternatively you are always welcome at our offices. 

  • We will provide you data in a useable sealed mesh format: .STL .OBJ .STEP .IGES or .X_T. 

  • We even do G-code. 

  • We can create NURBS models of any scan data of .stl/.obj to ensure data is easy for you to pick up and work with. 

  • Our design team can make changes to your mesh data or start engineering parts from scratch if required. 

  • If you already have data that needs cleaning up we are happy to take a look at that as well.
