Accurate 3D scanning

A digital version of a physical object, surface or environment has many different applications. These 3D files can be used to produce a clone of an object, quickly make a 3D record of a crime scene, quickly and effectively measure objects and much more. Making this possible starts with taking an accurate scan of the physical object, surface or environment concerned.

TWNKLS’ patented SLAM technique can accurately scan and measure spaces within a 0.2% margin of error. The first step in this process is the placement of one or more markers. The software uses these to determine the location and scale of the object or surface to be scanned. During scanning, records of the exact locations of the markers, in relevance to each other, are gradually gathered.

This process is not only faster and more accurate than manual measurement, but does not require any specialized equipment. All that’s needed is the camera in a modern tablet or phone. Although you can achieve an even more detailed scan, and also scan smaller objects, by adding other scanning equipment such as a 3D sensor or laser.
