Beaulieu Land Speed Record Cars

The iconic cars housed in the Beaulieu museum, featuring the Sunbeams, Bluebird and Golden Arrow, were 3D scanned and photographed to create a permanent digital archive record for the museum. Of course, this will help preserve them for many future generations to admire, people who will never visit to see and, should disaster befall them,  the bodyshop to re-create, but it also shows how accessing 3D technologies can

Classic car Mercedes3D scanning

Laser scan post-processing through to manufacture

If required, we can work through your project from start to finish saving you having to co-ordinate between different skills that you may not have knowledge of.

Ferrari 250 GTO CAD design 3D Engineers

Ferrari 250 GTO 3D scans and body buck

To be able to 3D laser scan one Ferrari 250 GTO is a privilege, but we have now scanned two. This makes us possibly unique on the planet (outside Ferrari?) in being able to make a direct comparison between different cars and move forward with the technical ability to use the data to make a buck/art installation. Early Ferrari bodies differ for a very good reason: the bodies were generally created in a rush, using a m

The work required virtually every tool in our technological armoury involving advanced CAD, 3D scanning, scanning in sub zero temperature (not easy for most scanners), working in the “field” with no power available and combining programme plug-ins that we mixed an
