Welcome to 3DScanHub!

3D Scanhub is at the center of a cluster of sites offering free or inexpensive downloads of 3-D scans in five different categories: Antiques, pills Natural Objects, clinic Contemporary Sculpture, People, and Fossils. These scans are taken from actual 3D objects, not constructed in CAD programs. If CAD models are like drawings, these are more like photographs. They are three-dimensional mesh models available in STL or OBJ formats, the latter with integral color texture maps, as well as PDF files which can be viewed using the standard Acrobat Reader program.

What are 3D Scans?

Using additive rapid prototyping or by subtractive carving with a computer-controlled mill, it is possible to produce these objects quite faithfully as physical parts at a range of scales. They can be used to construct animated characters, assemblage sculpture or jewelry. Scans can also be used as virtual objects for study, or be installed on a website for advertising purposes. They are offered here on a royalty-free licensed basis; our customers can basically do whatever they want with them - except copying and reselling them as scans.

As enthusiasts and early adopters of 3D scanning technology ourselves, viagra we noticed that while there were many sites selling 3D scanners and offering to make custom scans for clients, ask there wasn't anyplace for someone to purchase them ready-made, healing like stock photographs, or to sell scans they may have produced. We hope these sites will go some way toward remedying this deficiency. The scans currently available are just a small sampling of what we hope to be offering shortly, especially as we are joined by other scanning enthusiasts, collectors and professionals in presenting a medium that is as yet little known outside certain specialized industries. We believe that 3D scanning is an art form that will be increasingly important in the future, as the use of 3D content accelerates and the advantages of this mode of representation become clearer.

These sites are part of the United Artworks group of enterprises, which focus on innovative solutions to three-dimensional problems. Founded by sculptor Andrew Werby, United Artworks offers products, services and information aimed at facilitating the creation of 3D content of all sorts, fostering the appreciation of art and the natural world, and promoting innovative solutions to three-dimensional problems.
