3D Jewellery Scanning
Within our casting house we also have a high definition 3D scanner.
As part of the bespoke commission process we use 3D scanning to aid us in making the more complicated fitted/shaped wedding bands.
Not all rings will need to be scanned, the design of the existing ring and the design of the requested wedding band will dictate the need for a 3D scan.
If we have previously made your existing ring using CAD then we will more than likely have the 3d file and will not need to scan your ring.
If you are unsure of whether a ring needs to be scanned for the design requested, please come and ask Tim or Chris Fisher.
The current charge for a 3D scan is £45.
Where possible we will be able to turn this round in two to three days. If we need to scan a ring quicker than this we need to talk to Dan who operates the scanner and make sure he is available to perform the scan in the available time window.
How the scanning works…
The blue lights that cross over the object constantly take images and piece these together to build a 3D image.
This clever software joins all the scanned areas together to make one whole ring.
The finished 3d scan is saved and exported as an stl. file which can then be used in our cad programs to help make the new ring.
